Personal profile link

Original post in contribute. 


Hey guys!

Simple little thing. When giffgaff changed the website layout a few months ago to have these new tabs and lots of new links to parts of the website, I liked it a lot, apart from one link:




At the moment it links to:


which is just a different part of the preferences section which is linked in the 'preferences' link below that, making the 'personal profile' button a bit pointless at the moment.


I think it should be linked to:

http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/1169193 (well that's my profile, but it would be the profile of the user)

making it be the same link as


on the main forum.

This is a much more useful link, where you can see your recent posts/stats/kudos/etc, and you'll be able to get to it in one click, rather than having to go into the community, then into the button above.


Only a small change, but I think it'll make navigating giffgaff even more efficient.


Let me know what you guys think :smileyhappy:

I think this could work not sure giffgaff will do

Of course it doesn't work! This idea is over 5 years old and the forum software has been changed many times since then. A simple check on the links would have shown this.

After 5 years of software changes yes of course it's now not the same.

I think the way Flarum (our new platform since we left Lithium mid August 2019) links to your community profile might be more like you are describing here. In that case, this could almost be marked as ‘Implemented’ ? ? ?

Unfortunately this is another suggestion that has been left hanging so long it's become redundant.

With reference to the lithium hosted community layouts
