Default Linking Usernames to Front Page...

Ok, I don't know if this is possible, but I think it is since Mods and Admins make the front page articles by making a thread first-
I think that whenever a username is mentioned on the front page, you should be able to click on the name to access the person's profile. Like this:

WI User Elephant recently adopted all of the August Pets

Haha, I wish I did!

But I like to congratulate people when they adopt pets, or something of the sort, and it is always a hassle looking for their name via the search feature, ESPECIALLY when their username is something like "webkinzrox." Search that and see what you get!

So, could the staff go the extra mile to do this? I hope so!

It will make the staff have to take a little more time, but I think it's a great idea. It's a hassle to look up people...as you said, if their name is something like "webkinzgirl" etc. Great Idea! -rep-

LOL, I know what you mean. Example without link:

WI member Secret Ninja wins Ultra-Cool webkinz

Example WITH link:

WI member Secret Ninja wins Ultra-Cool webkinz.

There's a very easy solution to your problem, and it will take you only a few seconds, it's called Copy and Paste. High-light and Copy the name of the person that you want to congratulate from the front page article, then go to Community in the banner, and Paste their name in, and Go. You'll be taken to exactly the right member, and you can go to their profile and congratulate them.

And doing it this way, won't give the staff any extra work to do.

This will work very well with usernames like in your examples, webkinzrox, webkinzgirl, etc. Although there are many usernames that are very similar, there is really only one of each. So if you copy and paste, you'll get taken to the one and only.

Sorry Webberlily, but it is still a good idea. But that does work if you copy and paste. I do that so I don't have to type links!

I do copy and paste, but some names, like WebkinzRox have names in front of it, and it is hard to find.

I personally think this is a great idea. The whole idea is to have things easy for the users - not for the admins. They're the ones who're supposed to do the work, after all.

Excellent suggestion Plus not everyone who reads the front page is a member, and clicking on a user profile while not signed in to WI would just take you to a page you couldn't view. We don't want to have informational links in the articles that not everyone could view
