Description

We need short generic URLs e.g. bewelcome.org/people/guaka.

This will also make the transition away from /bw/ smoother.

On my localhost adding "RewriteRule? /*people/(.*) bw/member.php?cid=$1 [QSA]" to .htaccess is enough!

I don't know how to move this forward though, since .htaccess is not in svn and this could potentially break some stuff.

don't we have sth like this already ?

see http://www.bewelcome.org/user/guaka

comment:6 Changed 10 years ago by guaka

Cool. To do:

  • make sure it doesn't turn into http://www.bewelcome.org/bw/member.php?cid=guaka
  • use people instead of user
  • actually use this convenient link (instead of the cid= one)

This will happen once we have ported the members application in rox. In this case, I would like to have "members" and "people" as alias, evtl "member" as well.

I agree that "user" is not the right expression.

guess this can be closed no?

comment:9 Changed 10 years ago by lemon-head

Well.. if someone wants to implement a redirect from www.bw/members/username to www.bw/bw/member.php?cid=username, go for it.

Otherwise, just wait for the new members application (or contribute to it).

In the new members app, the build/members/alias.ini takes care of this.
