So I am looking to see if PP Themes can render so-called pretty links like:
So that the above profile can look like this:
In knowing this is a great way to build social identity…..
Do I need a redirect plugin or similar – to achieve this?
Apart from hiding the word ‘author’ in the url, I don’t see any other benefit.
Note that it is not a limitation of the PremiumPress themes, but rather a WordPress issue.
If you understand how WordPress works, you would know that the permalinks look as they are for a reason.
Lets say that you have an author ‘teeslar’, then you have a post ‘teeslar’, category ‘teeslar’, attachment ‘teeslar’ and you have a listing ‘teeslar’ – WordPress then uses the permalink to differentiate between the different ‘kinds of teeslar’.
so for category it uses /category/teeslar
for tags it uses /tag/teeslar
for post it uses /teeslar
There are some plugins or other ways to change the permalinks, but those are ‘hacks’ and negatively affect the WordPress functionality.
I should have asked – how to change the “author” folder to another name – like say: “account” without negatively impacting on the WordPress functionality.
I have found several plugins which do the hack so am looking at other solutions first.
Mike have a look at this plugin:
This should do the job for you.
@Mark – thanks so much – I will look at this and a hack that M has kindly constructed which also looks extremely useful.
Will also report back for usability.
