Support » Plugin: SF Author Url Control » Very useful plugin. Enabling users to edit their own

    Hello,

    Very helpful if we want to change the author urls.

    I think if I want to let users to edit their own profile urls, the permission if ( current_user_can('read')) is enough(edit the plugin file). But I doubt if there could be any security issues or danger like enabling all the users(including normal users with subscriber role) could cause any trouble. Ofcourse, that’s just my doubt:)

    Hello.

    edit the plugin file

    Don’t.
    Since the version 1.1, there’s a filter for that:

    add_filter( 'sf_auc_user_can_edit_user_slug', 'allow_users_to_edit_slug' );
    function allow_users_to_edit_slug() {
    	return current_user_can( 'read' );
    }

    Imho it’s not a great idea (for the seo for example), you should let that to the editors or authors.

    I didn’t get what is not a great idea. Do you meant it is good to let the basic subscribers to edit or what?

    I think it’s not a good idea to let subscribers change their profile url whenever they want. Every time we change a page url, it’s a possible error 404 later for Google and its friends.

    Well, in the other hand, I guess subscribers won’t change it every day.
