[resolved] author -> bbp_user (4 posts)

    Is there a way to make the Users widget (which is part of the Members plugin) use bbp_user instead of author?

    Thanks!

    To be precise--if a link directs me to .../?author=n, I want it to go to .../?bbp_user=n

    Elsewhere someone told me:
    You could use htaccess and a RewriteRule for that.

    Can someone help me figure out what that means and how to do it?

    Thanks!

    It turned out that the solution was to use the WP htaccess Control plugin and use it to install a custom .htcaccess file with a rewrite rule
    (using the pretty url’s generated by the permalinks):
    RewriteRule author/([^/]+)/?$ http://yourspecificwebsitename/forums/users/$1/ [R=301,L]
