Support » Plugin: WC Vendors Marketplace - The WooCommerce Multivendor Marketplace Solution » Prevent WCV from changing vendor store URL when store name is changed

    Hi.

    I just noticed that everytime a vendor changes his store name, it also changes his store address everywhere on the marketplace.
    [ see image https://i.imgur.com/Q75djuM.png ]
    Ex : Changing my store name to “Jared’s boutique” will change my store URL to https://site.com/vendor/jared-boutique

    I have to say this is the stupidest design choice I have ever seen, since it will basically break previously shared addresses (on facebook or otherwise) everytime someone decides to change his store name.

    That being said, vendor stores are still accessible using the regular address https://site.com/vendor/username which is the correct and only expected behaviour.

    I can’t believe that this is not a glitch, am I missing something ?

    At the very least, it should be possible to prevent vendors from editing their “Store Name” within their dashboard.

    Thanks for your inputs.

    Hello again.

    Well, technically it does not require any type of enhancement.

    I guess I could hire some $50 guy from Fiverr to prevent that from happening, but a stable / update-proof fixed issued from you guys would certainly be a better option.

    Let me know !

    Thx.

    Any news on when that next update will be released ?

    I’d really like to use the product, but it is simply not usable “as is” since the vendors just can’t share links to their store and products without risking to break them later on.

    @mkesteban08 , do you guys have any update on this?

    This really is an issue that needs addressing, @louvois78 raised very valid points!

    It could really be as simple as disabling the Store name field after it’s been filled and showing a little message.
