Hello,

We will publish our new design soon but we realized we forgot something. We are not a forum site and we have industry-specific user profiles and industry-specific areas. Is there a way to cancel WpForo user profile links and redirect them to our own design?

Thank you

Hi @t-niron,

Go to Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups, edit the “Guest” and “Registered” usergroups and uncheck the following permissions:

  • Front – Can view members
  • Front – Can view profiles

Thus, your users will not see any profile pages and member lists. Only admin will be able to see them.

@chris Hello,

Since this just revokes user permissions the user still goes to a page but gets a warning. Is there a way to point this link to our own profile design?

Thank you

@t-niron,

You can try redirection plugin, but not sure how good it would work.

@chris Hello,

I followed your advice and discussed this with Rank Math, my redirect and SEO plugin. They gave me the following routing rule. It does exactly what I want. In this redirect, I am able to use the custom profile page I created by canceling the default WpForo user profile. I wanted to share the solution.

Source: participant/(.*)
Match: regex
Destination: profile/$1

Thank you for your support
