    This add-on allows user with permission to specify a 'Vanity Name'.

    This vanity name allows easy access to their profile, by navigating to <yourdomain>/<vanity_name>.

    You can also specify a global prefix and/or suffix (which is @ here at XF Liam).

    For Example: https://xf-liam.com/@liam

    You can choose to have the vanity name URL redirect to their profile URL, or have the vanity name URL be their profile URL.

    The ability to set vanity names is permission controlled.

    There is an option to automatically generate vanity names at registration, a rebuilder to rebuild all vanity names as well as an option to stop people setting their own vanity names on a global basis.

    What can i say it does the job. This is something i was looking for because my member profile page urls were way to long. Now it looks professional and now members want to share their page links. It should actually be a core feature in xenforo, but i'm happy to support this add-on developer by getting this awesome add-on. Thank You!

    Despite the simplicity of this addon it truly has changed my site for the better. I love how this addon doesn't generate conflicting urls and having short profile urls makes my community feel more alike a social networking site than a forum, and that's a good thing! This simply works, and I would definitely recommend you try it!
