Profile page addresses with id number before username... not desired

1 month 2 weeks ago #307628 by lucablue
Hi,
I've seen it just now but I think this issue was born since some last update of CB couse until July / August there is not this problem.

The address of the user profile page, since I had build the website, was www.nameoftesite.com/club/username.html
Now it appears like: www.nameoftesite.com/club/345-username.html where 345 is the id number of the user...

I've not changed nothing into the configuration, how can return to the address without id number (the old users not have the id number, only the newone)

Thank you

If the username is not URL safe according to the results of Joomlas JFilterOutput::stringURLSafe (or JFilterOutput::stringURLUnicodeSlug) function it will prefix the user id so it can match the user. Once a username is ran through that function it's compared against their untouched username. If they don't match it will prefix the user id. If they do match then it'll be possible for the SQL to find the user id based off their exact username so it won't prefix the user id. If you don't want this to happen then limit the characters that can be in a username (e.g. no spaces or special characters) or use the included Profile URL field so users can change their URL to whatever they like.

Hi krileon,
I understood what you mean but for example the user "uzzo" has his page like "329-uzzo.html" where 329 is the id user number.
As you can see "uzzo" username has not any strange char... just alphabetical character but the system gives him the prefix id number...

Until august this not happened... never.

I'm not understanding

Is it exactly uzzo or are there UTF8 characters? If there are UTF8 characters you need to use unicode alias feature. Aside from that I don't know, I've just tested exactly "uzzo" and it works perfectly fine (no prefix).

The name is UZZO, where I can set the unicode feature for username?

You can enable Unicode aliases in Joomlas SEF settings within your Joomla global configuration. Joomla will lowercase it so it being all uppercase may be an issue. The matching however isn't strict so shouldn't matter the case.
