Hi, Wpforo team

First of all thanks for your great plugins and Support 🙂 

1. We are facing 2 small issues that any user of our site post content in any topic, when they or we try to change the permalinks from Wpforo front end or back-end, but there is no options to change the permalinks.

Or perhaps We don't know how to change this.

Existing Permalink => Sitename.com/community/health/2/

Want to change => Sitename.com/community/health/Effective-Weight-Loss-And-Fat-Burning-Exercises

2. How to disable or delete Specify avatar by URL feature from User Profile 

See attached Image

Hope to hear from you soon 🙂

Thanks & Regards

Hi @ashish,

 We are facing 2 small issues that any user of our site post content in any topic, when they or we try to change the permalinks from Wpforo front end or back-end, but there is no options to change the permalinks.

I'm sorry but no way yet, but this is already in our to-do (no eta yet).

How to disable or delete Specify avatar by URL feature from User Profile 

You can hide it using the following CSS code.  Put the code in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles > "Custom CSS code" textarea. 

.wpf-field-wrap > ul > li:nth-child(2) {
display: none !important;
}

SUGGESTION:

Hi @ashish . The above issue, I think, is not a wpForo issue, but a WordPress (WP) Issue, specifically, in the "settings".

To fix this, I suggest the following steps:

1. Go to WP Dashboard

2. Then scroll at the bottom, select "Settings"

3. Then select "Permalink" to go to your settings.

4. Then select "Post Name"

OR

4. You can also select "Custom Structure" and then put the code below:

/%category%/%postname%/

Hope this helps. 🙂

You can "charge it" to experience.  Pay it forward and freely help someone else later. 🙂  Good luck and God bless you!

I have selected Postname because we have separate blog section and We have separate feature of Forum with Wpforo in our site with {sitename.com/community/topicname/postname} slug.

So adding { /%category%/%postname%/ } will change all blog url's 

I only want to change when any user submit post in Wpforo and if I or anyone wants to change already posted URL permalinks in Wpforo,

There is no option to change that permalinks neither in front end nor in WP backend as we can change WP blog permalinks while posting or updating blogs.

Hope you understand 🙂

Hi @ashish

Yes, I tried to understand. That was why I posted and suggested:

(I assumed "health" was a category).

But my above suggestion:

4. Then select "Post Name", 

worked for my forum, (I have a blog as well)  as I can see the forum's posts, with their "postnames" and not the number, without having to change anything on wpForo, but just making sure the WP Permalink settings is correct.  And even the "permalinks" themselves on each post, shows the category and the postname. My setting was just what I suggested and typed above.

4. Then select "Post Name", 

Maybe it worked on mine because I have a very simple theme and minimal plugins and currently on WordPress 5.0.3. Maybe you can try disabling some plugins which might be conflicting, and then test my suggestions and see if it works. I'm only suggesting, because it worked for me, and that's all I did and sharing it with you.

In my own little long time WP experience, your issue comes up when the permalink settings is either on "Plain" or "Numeric" Common Settings.  Try to just put it on "Post name", create a new post and then see. 

Sorry my suggestions didn't help you, but that's the only way I know how to fix that issue.   

Maybe other people here or wpForo Team can help you too.  🙂  I'm just a member here.
