What would be the best way to clean up the URL user profile path structure for AVS Adult 3.3?

 

As we have now for user profile: domainname/user/username

 

IMO: That's very ugly.

 

Something like domainname/username would be much cleaner and presentable.

 

Thanks!

That URL is already very clean.

 

It let's the user / site know what module it is using.

 

What do you plan to do if someone creates the username "video" or "siteadmin"?

 

While it's not impossible, I doubt many people would want to display URL's like that and it would be far more trouble than it's worth.

The reason is it kind of looks and functions as antiquated. While it is common for facebook, twitter, and instagram to use domainname/{brandname}; and already I've had a few customers link and omit the /user/ path as almost assuming that would work for them.

 

I do understand you point, yet I'm looking to explore the caveats of updating.

 

Thanks!

I do understand you point,

 

Maybe you do not understand that this is video script, not a typical social script.

Video script is focused first on videos, eventually on photos and games, not on users.

And don't forget that you are not facebook. You can't have all security mechanisms as facebook has in such public script.

Also what is allowed for facebook, not necessary is good for you, may rather hurt website a lot than bring any good.
