Adds the usernames link feature for Persons and Organizations.

  • Users can set their unique username on profile creation.
  • Enable/Disable edit this field, this is useful so users choose their profile only once.
  • Redirection to new link ""
  • Admin can edit existing usernames in module settings.
  • Admin can disable existing usernames in module settings. If a username is disabled, this user link will be the old one and it will not redirect to the new link.
  • Option to auto-generate usernames from profiles full name.

This will generate automatic usernames from Persons full name or Organization's name. 

From Organization name "Google Inc." it will generate the username "google-inc"

From Person full name "Vanessa Angel" it will generate the username "vanessa-angel"

After installing this module, you need to clear the website cache to make new links be refreshed site-wide.


Important for UNA cloud customers:

  1. This module needs php-intl installed and enabled in the server, the automatic usernames need this to work properly, if you see that this feature is not working, please ask your hosting support to install and enable php-intl module in the server.
  2. This module works on UNA 11 and over, in the update of UNA 11 there is a new config that was added to htaccess for apache servers, UNA cloud works on Nginx server and this new rewrite rule is not added automatically, you need to request to your hosting support for adding this new line to your Nginx config file:
  • if (!-e $request_filename ) {
  • rewrite ^/your-path-to-una/(.+)$ /your-path-to-una/r.php?_q=$1 last;
  • break;
  • }
  • This was already explained by Andrew Boon in the IMPORTANT UPDATE NOTES from his post "UNA 11 "Altair" Released"
  • If this rule is not added into the configs, the url "" will display error 404 "Not found", if that's your case, disable the module until your hosting support adds that rewrite rule, once done, enable it again and it will start working.

    • Does the pretty links plugin exist? or are you working on it. I was reading the help section of this mod. So either a teaser or not in the works for Una, Other than that it works according to plan. Price is a little hefty, but hope at that price there will be regular updates and fixes. 

      • This module just crashed my site. 

        • This developer appears to no longer be active and supporting these apps.

          • Nice module, instructions a bit confusing, but over all very useful mod, thanks. Just one little suggestion, can submit button be placed at the bottom of "edit profile page," a bit confusing. I tried all templates and the submit button was at the same location. Perhaps this should be brought up with UNA?

            • That's the module that caused speed trouble. It takes almost 9 seconds to resolve the module requests and rendering.

              • We have extensively tested site speed, and taken a long hard look at UserNames, I can safely say that UserNames does not slow down your Site. The biggest bottle necks come from other places. 

                Usernames is a fairly good module, it does need to be polished as it is lacking in a number of areas and the developer is not willing to improve, but the module works well and does what it is designed to do. Even with the feature failings in the module I would recommend purchasing Usernames and supporting this developer as it functionally does what it is designed to do.

                Speeding up your site:

                If you have any code in >Studio >Designer > injections take it out, your site will be so much faster.


                Analytics and Advertising code can really impact on your sites performance, removing that code from the header and body will make your site fly.

                • When registering a user with the name Arnold, an address with an apostrophe is issued, which leads to an error in creating a profile (Name on russian - Арнольд Фистин, system make translit anf use ' ). Arnold'Firstin. When the autogenerate short name option is enabled.

                  • While this module did work in the past, it is not compatible with the upcoming una 13 release.

                    This module needs to be updated to account for this improvement from the UNA team -


                    • @MSolutions Any update? Release is getting closer...

                      • Still not updated - not functional with Una 13.

                      • Please will you consider adding "Reserved Usernames" to the Username app. "Reserved Usernames" will let Admins save certain usernames for future use and/or prevent TradeMark infringement for example:
