'my-profile' vs. site settings for vanity url prefix

Dec 8, 2013 at 10:31 PM
How do I change the 'my-profile' so it matches the entry in site settings?

Site Settings > Profile Settings > Vanity URL Prefix

The vanity url prefix is entered in the database, but Open URL writer seems to handle it, so that the paths in the skin <dnn:user... point to 'my-profile' and not to the Site Setting.

How to change, match, update?

Open Url Rewriter have always had a prefix, because it use the "my-profile" page url as prefix.

Maybe you can just put the Vanity URL Prefix in the page url of the "my profile" page settings.

I will look at it how to handle this better.

If we could change it from 'my-profile' to 'about' or 'whois' (even if it had to be done in the code whould be great. If it could reflect the value in the Site Settings, that would be even better as we have a multi-portal site.

I changed the page prefix, but that didn't do anything.

Your help is appreciated

I just check it out :

Normally if you click on the user name you have

open url rewriter change it[username]

So you have to change the url of the Activity-Feed page in page settings.

Is it what you have try to do ?

I love it when a 'scotoma' (blindspot) gets revealed. This was my case. I changed the page name (My Profile) and what do you know? I thought the Open URL Rewriter was 'defaulting' or self-assigning the page name as some core assignment or something. What a dumb thought. Voila!

Thanks for the insight and the laugh.
