Automatically-Shorten-the-User-Profile-URL

Automatically Shorten the User Profile URL

Site admin can enable automatic shortening of the existing and new user profile URLs into easy and short URLs. Current URL format is long: www.your_website.com/profile/username . By excluding ‘profile’ from the current URL format, it will change into new format i.e. www.your_website.com/username.

 

Add Custom Text in User Profile URL

Site admin can also replace 'profile' from current URL with a custom slug. This will help you in creating more sensible user profile URL for your website. The new general format of the user profile URL will be like this: www.your_website.com/CUSTOM_TEXT/username

Example: Your website is designed specifically for bikers then you can replace ‘profile’ with ‘bikers’, so new URL format for user profile will be: www.your_website.com/bikers/username.

User-Profile-URL-Based-on-Member-Levels

Add Custom Text or Automatically Shorten the User Profile URL on Member Levels Basis

Different member levels require different user profile URL formats to justify their profile. Site admin can enable / disable automatic shortening of user profile or can replace ‘profile’ with custom slug for available different member levels on the website.

Example: If you have three different member levels on your website, suppose: teachers, students and guest. You can create three different user profile URL formats for these members like this:

Teacher: www.your_website.com/teacher/username
Student: www.your_website.com/student/username
Guest: www.your_website.com/username

 

Ban Offensive Usernames

Use of offensive, irrelevant or trash words as username can tarnish the reputation of a website. It is important to ban them beforehand, so that no user is authorized to assign it as their username. Site admin can restrict such words.

Example: README, admin, website_name etc.

Site admin can also ban other keywords associated with the installed and active plugins on the website, which users cannot assign as username to their profile.

Example: store, group, sitevideos, etc.

 

Notification Tips

Site admin will configure all the settings and will ban the required keywords during the setup of this plugin. But, new plugins (modules) are installed from time to time to enhance the website. So, SKU and keywords related to this plugin should also be banned. Notification tip will appear to inform the site admin about the latest plugin installation and conflicts on the website.
