Elgg Custom Profile Address

Hello:

 

I'm new to this CMS (Elgg) . I was wondering if it is possible to rewrite how the url display for members. Like for example:

 

Instead of This

http://jbxp.net/pg/profile/michelve

 

I Want This:

http://jbxp.net/michelve

or

http://michelve.jbxp.net/

 

 

I saw that when you register on elgg they let you choose your domain or profile address.

Like yourname.elgg.com

Here is the link: http://elgg.com/ (it has to be the same software foundation, right. )

 

Thanks in advance.

  • Michelve, I built a plugin to shorten links in Elgg, you can find it here. I believe there's a version of this plugin in the repository as well.

  • elgg.com is run by Curverider, who, until recently, used to be the 'owner' of ELGG. Now it is owned by The ELGG Foundation, which consists of a multitude of developers, many of them from Curverider still.

    If someone with more knowledge about the subject could fix/add on to what I said above, that'd be great.

     

    I am pretty certain that what you want to do can be accomplished with a somewhat simple mod rewrite line added to the .htaccess file. I think someone within the last couple weeks posted how to do that on these forums, so try searching around a bit for it. Good luck.

    First, it's "Elgg."  No caps :)

    The Elgg Foundation will take over development of Elgg.  The only previous Curverider employee in the foundation is me.  Everyone else involved in the foundation is unaffiliated with Curverider.
