Small, but significant change to the URLs used for your profile pages on the site.

Now, instead of looking like this:

http://www.travellerspoint.com/member_profile.cfm?user=Peter

they look like this:

http://www.travellerspoint.com/users/Peter/

Should be a lot easier to remember :)

I also added in a link to your trip stats page if you have mapped any trips. You will see an image on the right of your profile with no. of trips + no. of countries.

Cool - looks a lot neater. :)

I understand the change of only showing titles for reviews in the profile, but wish the click-through page for all reviews would still show the full things; I've used that several times in the past to quickly review how I'd rated comparable properties, to make certain my rating scale for all reviews is somewhat internally consistent. If the concern is duplicate content, maybe just make those pages noindex, follow?

I also think the "send message" button is significantly less obvious now, due to the trip stats adding more green directly underneath it; maybe make that blue instead?

Ooh pretty! Love stats on the profile but slightly gutted about the URL change, from an admin POV only.

Don't worry Kellie - the other format will still work. It will just redirect to the new format :)

Sander, the missing reviews on that page is a mistake on my part. Will try to get a fix up shortly. Agreed on the send message. I'm thinking of moving the send message button elsewhere, maybe under the profile photo.

Or maybe have photos back where they were and just above the stats? That would separate them.

Moving the photos would indeed work (and personally I like photos more than trip stats, so think they deserve a higher position); assuming the percentage of people with trips but without photos isn't too large...?

I've tried something else now -- moving the Send Message button over to be under the profile photo. We used to have the send message link there once upon a time and as I think about it, this actually makes a lot more sense to me anyway.

Photos are back up above stats though. And the reviews are showing complete on the page when you click through to see them all (not on the profile itself).

Ah yeah, fits very well there! And yay on the other changes.

Noticed a user in the online list yesterday for which the profile URL caused an error: TØK's i Florida. The same error seems to show for any non-existing username, but I really saw this person in the online list, and they also still exist as a result on a user search.
