    Great stuff!
    Your link brings up an error though, if this does in fact work.

    When I go to 'Personal Details' and try to update any of the other information on that page,
    I get an error message that "Someone has already chosen that vanity name, please choose a different one!".

    This also occurs when trying to edit a user in the ACP, if they have defined a Vanity Name.
    The only way I've been able to get around this behavior is by temporarily changing it to gibberish (or something else), making the changes to the personal details, and reverting it back to the original vanity name.

    Also, I've noticed that if I do:

    It links me to my avatar.

    If I do:

    It links me to my profile as intended.

    Is there any way to get rid of the case sensitivity?

    This addon should have Approment feature and name editor feature for mod/admin.
    There are some important names which admin can't know how important they are and these names should not be used by others.

    There is a blacklist feature, and admins can edit it in the AdminCP.

    Thanks for reporting, I'll get these all fixed.

    Blacklist is all names we know to protect. But there are many potential names we don't know but we should protect them.
    For example, a member register "support" name. But this name isn't in Blacklist. Then when we need a support system, we can't use it because it was registed by a member. If there is an approment system, when we check and see "support", we don't approve this name to member.

    It might also be a nice feature for it to automatically insert the user's username as the default vanity name.
    They'd be able to change it, at their discretion, but it'd ensure that at least their username is 'reserved', to an extent.
    Though, I imagine this would only impact newly registered users, rather than retroactively affecting existing users.

    Whoops, I'll change it on my site now. Give it 2 minutes.

    OK, @Barbossa, it's back to £7 if you're still wanting to purchase :)

    Does this version works with XF 1.4.0?

    Hey Liam, how about nginx compatibility, is there one?
  15. Liam W

    Liam W Well-Known Member

    The /name version works with the default XenForo rewrite rules, so if there are some for nginx then it'll work.

    As for the sub-domain redirect, you would have to check somewhere about how to redirect all subdomains to the main domain (like how XF does it with the main domain).

    How can I make all usernames have a vanity name by default of their username so instead of /mike.2 they just get /mike by default as the vanity.

    I want to have a look at this to see if it works for what I want but unfortunately you have to pay for it, which I am willing to do, but only if it does what I need.

    I would like to let all users have a cleaner link/address to their profile. In other words instead of:
    And what I would like to have is:

    Looking at what has been posted it seems that this could be done if the user creates a Vanity Name, is this correct?

    Also, to make all users have a vanity name the same as their username could you make the field in their settings hidden and set the default of the field to their username. This would save their username as their vanity name automatically. For existing users, you could then run an SQL on the table to update the same for all existing users. The only problem left would be to come up with some way that when a new user registers, the Vanity Name is automatically created from their username when they register.

    Is all this possible???????
