  • Because Name Already Exists

    (@because-name-already-exists)


    Just received some minor request from my site members.

    When new user signup with their Google Account, it automatically also create slug from their Gmail Address.

    For example:

    1. A user signup with: his@gmail.com
    2. He will got gmail username as their user slug: https://example.com/author/his/

    Is there a hook or something that i can use to prevent Super Socializer automatically create user slug from Google / Gmail username?

    For temporary i have solved this problem by changing user slug base with their user id (something like example.com/author/46/). but if there any solution regarding this problem I will appreciated that.

    I was thinking using register_post (I dont know if Super Socializer also using this) https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/hooks/register_post/ but if there any related hook from Super Socializer it would be better using that one.

    Thank you for your help.

    What do you want the username to be created from?

    I was thinking from First name (with auto increment if have duplicate slug).

    I know sometimes user use their first name for gmail address, but its chance look better than using their gmail user name.

    If their first name same as gmail username, maybe i will give them unique random character. Basically it can be anything as long not their gmail username or WordPress user id.

    Thank you for your response
