How to Enable Vanity Profile Urls

If you want your user's to have their profile url display as (this is with short urls already enabled) then follow these steps.

AdminCP >> Settings >> Manage Settings >> Registration:

Disable Username on Registration


Set to False so that your new registrations will input a username when they sign up.

This won't change current registered users. For that, you need your users to change their usernames in their accounts but you need to be sure each user group is allowed to change it. See this tutorial for how to manage user group settings.

For User, find the settings:

Can change own user name? Set to Yes
How many times can this user group edit their user name? If you want to change the limit.


Be sure to Submit your changes when done.
