user profile link giving a 404 error

  • nolimit966


    Hi there,
    Im having problems viewing the user profile on my BBpress forum integrated in my website. When i try to click on the username of someone that has posted (for example – in the topics section) it takes you to a ‘page not found’ – 404 error page.
    Does anyone know how i can fix it so that it takes them to the profile page?
    I am using my own bespoke custom theme

    Thank you

    Thank you Robin.

    UPDATE: I’ve just heard back from Elementor support with the following:

    Thanks for contacting us and for bringing this issue with our Hello theme to our attention.

    I have made a report of this issue (attached with your ticket) to our developers to have a deeper look into this as we were able to replicate this in our testing site as well. Although we are unable to provide you with a definite ETA as to when this will be addressed, our developers will work to provide an update on this as soon as possible.

    If you’d like, feel free to keep an eye on our GitHub changelog (link below) during our new releases to know when this has been fixed.

    great – do report back any progress 🙂



    Hey @jelvidge, any updates? I ran into this problem!



    Hello sorry for reviving this old threat but has anyone found any definitive fix to this? I’m also using hello elementor and my users don’t have any spaces in their names
    thanks in advance

    Hope this helps. put these codes into your theme functions.php file.

    add_filter( 'bbp_get_reply_author_url', 'lp_member_profile_links' );
    add_filter( 'bbp_get_topic_author_url', 'lp_member_profile_links' );
    add_filter( 'bbp_get_author_url', 'lp_member_profile_links' );
    function lp_member_profile_links( $url ) {
    	if ( ! empty( $url ) ) {
    		return $url . 'profile';
    	return $url;



    Robin Wright! You are an underrated gem in the WordPress community! You have solved the 404 I had with bbpress and Elementor on the user profiles page for the last week! Thank you so much! This worked.

    great – glad you are fixed
