Profile URL – how to remove username from URL

  • girdy74


    I’ve been all over the forums trying to figure out a work around from having the username in the profile URL. For subscribers I feel like it’s no big deal to have the username in the URL BUT, for an admin who is responding to forum topics, having the username open to plain view is less than ideal. I feel like it opens up some security issues.

    Is there any way to change the profile URLs to have /firstname-lastname (since I’m requiring those fields) as the URL instead of /username?

    interesting question

    I think bbpress just uses the wordpress pretty permalinks, so might be worth trying this plugin to see if you can change the default

    Edit Author Slug

    I’ve only read the page above, not tried it !

    Please do report back if it works (or if it doesn’t)
