How To Customise A Username URL? | Forum

Is it possible to make a custom URL to link to people's profiles with their username?

Such as making a custom link to your profile that you can give out to people or post on external web site such as www.facebook.com/username

Thank you for your help.

It is usually www.youroxwallsite.com/user/username.
Assuming you allow guests to view profiles then that shouldn't be a problem.

If the user forgot their username you can search through the database for their email they used when registering.  (You can also log in with username OR email address)

If they forgot the username AND password then they should really create a new account!
