How do you use the username as the profile URL?

posts: 125

Hi everyone,

My username on Geek.Zone is "James". Is it possible to use this as the URL of my profile, so that the URL is;

Geek.Zone/James

not

Geek.Zone/user2

The first one looks much better!

How do you also allow users to share a bit more information about themselves on their profile? For example, a bio and a list of pages they have contributed to would be super.

Thanks!

Not sure this is possible, but you can probably do some sort of re-direct from the user wiki page (e.g., https://geek.zone/User:James )

To have their list of contributions, users can select which info to share on their User Preferences page. Please see the docs for details.

To let them add a bio or other info, you can use a User Tracker. Please see the docs for details.
