Custom profile URL
#3349 (In Topic #626)
I add a Custom Profile Field called: 'Nickname'
User enters 'Billy' into this CPF
User can now access their profile via 'page=members&type=view&id=Billy', in addition to the default of being able to access it via username and member-ID
Basically I want to duplicate the functionality of the 'Username' field which allows the user to access their profile from this fields value.
Some would say to just utilize the 'Username' field for this, but I want to allow users to have a username in addition to a nickname. Changing the 'username' field to their nickname would also change it on their forum posts but I want to keep their username on that instead of using their nickname.
In short, it's certainly possible and could probably be implemented in at least a couple of different ways (other than I described above). But not without some additional programming.
