Lack of Interest Remove Profile Page Link on the Member Card

    Clicking the member's username takes you to their profile page as well, so having two links to the same place on the member card seems kind of redundant.

    You can just remove the link in the template too...

    Oh, I know. I just feel like it should be that way from the get-go.

    Why remove functionality?
    It does no harm to have both links in place.

    It doesn't. You're right. :) However, from your point of view, what are the ups of having two links that go to the same place literally right next to each other?

    I can click either one.

    For those less internet savvy, not having an underline or some sort of indication under the username, they may not assume to go click it. But if I wanted to go to their profile, seeing "Profile Page" would be a valid assumption of what to click to achieve the end result I want.

    Well, there's that, haha! However, personally, if they're literally right next to each other, then I kind of see it as pointless. I can understand having the Start a New Conversation link, for example, on the member card and then under the Inbox dropdown menu because those two links aren't literally right next to each other. However, I can't understand it with the username and Profile Page links on the member card.

    I dunno, maybe I'm just crazy.

    There's actually a 3rd link to the same page... the avatar.

    Very valid point. I suppose they could they determine it's a link by the color, but those that aren't very Internet-savvy may not be able to do that, as you said.

    Thank you, Daniel. -_-

    Some people don't know the obvious and look for an actual link to the profile. :D

    How do we change the text of the "Profile Page" link on the member card? I looked for the phrase but can't find it.

    Search for the phrase content "Profile Page".
    I suspect it is more than likely profile_page.

    The phrase is profile_page.
