ProfileURL allows your Community Builder, EasySocial, JomSocial or JomWall users to customize their profile and group links, exactly like how it's done on Facebook. It is also integrated with ParaInvite's Namecard links.
Want to let your users have profile/group URLs like http://www.simbunch.com/mike_feng? Want to significantly increase your website's SEF and give your users' profiles a higher higher exposure on search results? With ProfileURL it's a breeze!
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 also increases your users' profiles SEF by displaying their shortened link on every profile page. To see this in action, search for "site:simbunch.com" on Google. You will notice that Google has indexed all the URLs to user profiles using their unique ProfileURLs.
It also requires either Community Builder, EasySocial, JomSocial or JomWall to be installed, and will work with any versions of these extensions. Plugins for each social extension are provided to display the user's URL and for them to change it (if enabled).
The integration with EasySocial is 2-way, meaning if you have the "permalink" field in EasySocial, changes to that field will be managed by and reflected in ProfileURL.
For the group URLs feature, it is integrated with JomSocial groups, JomWall groups, and GroupJive for Community Builder. If you wish to check that out in the demo, you will need to create at least one JomSocial group on this website.
