    Hi guys, I hope this is the right forum. We are running WP and BP in a portal for students of a Master in interaction design:

    Since we designed our own members page at, we would like to redirect BP member pages to the new URLs without deleting the profiles. I’ve tried a few htaccess tricks with no result. Can someone help me?

    Thanks! :)

    Cheers from Lugano.

    you can change the slug of the members page to whatever you like, then install BP Extended settings and choose option to have root profiles.

    So your urls would be


    If you want to keep .com/members/username then you would need to create a new page and use a page template with the members loop inside.

    == we would like to redirect BP member pages to the new URLs without deleting the profile ==

    Basically, go to Settings > BuddyPress > Pages – Members > choose page “People, Teachers, Guest, Lectures, Students” and Save. Then in Appearance > Menu, you can create a new menu item named Members and add the URL to the page “People. ….. Students”

    Edit – modemlooper didn’t see your post, I took too long to answer :-)
