Introduction

Site Management, Short URL

ProfileURL allows your users to customize their own personal links/vanity URLs to various content specific to them on your website. It can be profiles, groups, pages, events, namecards, galleries, contests, various dashboards, etc

  • Favourite
  • Report

Using a plugin system, you can integrate ANY extension with ProfileURL! Each plugin allows you to add an optional prefix to the URLs, allow your users to create permalinks and vanity URLs like http://www.simbunch.com/profiles/johnsmith, http://www.simbunch.com/profiles/johnsmith/contests, http://www.simbunch.com/events/johns-birthday etc easily.

Admins can choose to automatically set up the profile URL everytime a user registers, or make it a manual process (like Facebook). You can also choose to allow multiple updates or just once.

ProfileURL will auto suggest profile URLs for users based on their usernames, first names and last names. It will also list all the groups owned by the user so he can set up the group URLs. The extension will check if the URL conflicts with other names, like menu item aliases, other users' usernames etc. What's more, ProfileURL will work even if Joomla's SEF is disabled, and for websites that support multiple languages!

ProfileURL will also significantly increase your website's SEF. Please read the documentation for details and how you can see this in action. It is also responsive designed and will work on any mobile device.

The package comes with a long list of free plugins for:
> Community Builder - profiles, groups (GroupJive)
> JomSocial - profiles, groups, events
> EasySocial - profiles, groups, events, pages
> JomWALL - profiles, groups
> JTicketing - events
> Kunane - profiles
> ParaInvite - namecards
> SIMAnswers - dashboards
> SIMContests - dashboards
> SIMGallery. - dashboards

You can also create your own plugin to easily integrate with any extension you wish.

Check the demo to see how it works!

Works well

Functionality
It was important for me to provide my users with an easy-to-remember way to their own user profile. After long trying and endless search I found this plugin and it took me all the problems.
Ease of use
If the software is set up, this works self-explanatory.
Support
I have had to install the software with my server settings, but thanks to the excellent support in a short time were fixed. Thanks again to
Value for money
It is quite simple: Whoever does a good job must also be properly paid. And here the small fee is really justified.

not worth it

Functionality
broken, does not support numbers in url
Ease of use
to be fair it installed fine, then broke everything
Documentation
easy to install, about it
Value for money
rip off support likes to argue that they HAVE to have access to back end to fix a problem!
I used this to: nothing anymore!
Owner's reply: This user refused to provide any access information to their website, and demand us to provide support just based entirely on guessing. I almost laughed out loud by his absurdness.

The support is excellent

I must say this is some of the best support I have had through a commercial extension. Mr. Feng replies same day and even goes to your site to help out if needed in a timely manner. i would definitely recommend this for cb and any other use! Thanks again Mike!
I think they really support jomsocial but easysocial support is virtually a no-reply support.



I can't say they are really bad since I use their other extensions for some clients using their accounts (I encourage them to buy for themselves for long term support). Then I tried their easysocial profile, and I did report that their plugin doesn't work with usernames with numbers. 48 hours have passed and still no reply.
Owner's reply: Hi
Sorry for the late support as it is the holiday period here. All support tickets have been responded now.
For years I've admired the vanity urls on other sites. Now my members point people to their profile with a simple domain.com/johndoe. This is super slick for sharing, which is totally inherent in the nature of a social network. This extension works. Support is very responsive and patiently got me through a few questions during setup. Highly recommended. Again: super slick extension and awesome support.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review! Much appreciated.
