[Resolved] What is the Member Activity URL?

    @flickchicks

    Hi,

    I need help with where to direct people after they have logged in. I am using the “Social Login” plugin and need the URL for a member’s activity page to complete the set-up process.

    As an example, when someone logs in, the URL for their activity page is http://mywebsite.org/members/jane-doe/. To make that work for any user signing in I tried the URL http://mywebsite.org/members/username/ and it did not work (I was just guessing). I have no idea what the last part (where I put the word “username“) should be. Does anyone happen to know?

    Thanks

    Hi @flickchicks

    The /username/ part is given at sign-up. So when a user visits example.com/register they should see a field called username which they can complete along with their name, email, password etc.

    @henrywright thanks for the reply!

    I’m not sure I explained myself well. What I’m looking for is after the user has signed up and comes back another time and logs in. When they log in I don’t want them to go to the homepage, I want them to go to their activity page which the “Social Login” plugin will automatically do if I give it the right URL code.

    For example, for post names the permalinks code is http://mywebsite.com/sample-post/ and then it fills in the part that says “sample-post” with the name of the page, for instance it would fill in “About” for the about page so the permalink would look like: http://mywebsite.com/about/. I need the code for how Buddypress fills in the part that would put in the username. I was thinking it might be /user-name/ or /%username%/ or something like that, but they didn’t work.

    Ah right. I think I understand what you mean. So you’re saying the Social Login plugin gives you the opportunity to redirect users to a certain URL after they’ve logged in. You’d like this to be example.com/members/username where username varies according to who exactly is logging in?

    Yes, that’s exactly what I want! So, any thoughts on what that URL code should be?

    No idea because it’ll depend on the plugin. Likely there’ll be some string-replacement going on but you’d have to ask the plugin’s support team what string the plugin uses for username.

    Hope this helps

    @ronia yes but I think in this case username is a variable. So it’ll be something like example.com/members/%%username%% but as I said earlier you’ll need to check with the plugin.

    @ronia Thanks for the suggestion. I just gave that a shot and it didn’t work. Any other guesses?

    Hi,

    I have tried all kinds of combinations that I’ve seen online, but none have worked. I’ve not heard back from the plugin developer. It seems like it should be relatively easy URL.

    Any other thoughts @Henrywright? Your help is appreciated. Thanks

    Could you be using root profiles by any chance?

    If so, try:

    http://example.com/USERNAME/activity/
