Profile URL

Warning: This plugin has't been updated in over 54 years. It may no longer be maintained.

What you can do to help:

Yet another plugin to make the profile url into the form of [base_url]/[username]

Last updated


  • Prevents new users from registering with a conflicting username.

  • Conflicts default to the page, not the profile - users with existing conflicting names will have to change usernames.  It had to go one way or the other, but 'blog' should really go to blogs, not some idiot that thinks he's funny.

  • No magickal frameworks necessary!
  • Only 35 lines of code, including whitespace and comments!!
