Username in URL instead of UserID

Username in URL instead of UserID was created by mraburn
hey guys,

I cannot seem to get Usernames in the query to work, only by userid.

How do I enable this?

index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=userProfile&user='name'


will not work, only...

index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=userProfile&user=ID

People are using the rewrite friendly URLs but that URL is no longer valid.

Thanks for any help!

Same problem here, I noticed that on joomlapolis the both are working
www.joomlapolis.com/index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=userProfile&user=63
or
www.joomlapolis.com/index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=userProfile&user='beat '

How can I do that?
PS: I don't need to create homepages and 'subdomains' per user,but just replace the UserID by the username

Thank you for you help.

I'm having the same issue as well, did anyone figure this out?
I have to be able to pull profiles by username instead of userid in order to work with our chat program.

Ok I resoved the issue, here's what I did:

In the url code you need to add the '%%' to it like this:
/index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=userProfile&user='%USER%'

Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction. To avoid any confusion, however, what worked for me was just the &user='USER' without the %'s. Don't mean to bump an old topic but figured it may help others who were stuck such as myself. :)
