Hi Ron,

Would it be possible to have Publications link Tab on user page ? Because we have URL structure like this (with path auto module)

View "John" Biography : (http://www.website.com/john/biography)
View "John" t blog entries (http://www.website.com/john/blog)

It would be nice (SEO perspective) if we can display like this

View "John" Publications entries (http://www.website.com/john/publications)

Please advise

I don't know if you can define arbitrary paths with pathauto, but if you could map

http://www.website.com/john/publications to http://www.website.com/user/42/publications then is should work, assuming your base url is changed from biblio to publications and john's drupal user is is 42.

Thanks Ron. May be dumb question... but would it be possible to redirect


to http://www.website.com/john/publications

automatically ? Is it Pathauto thing or Bibilo modules thing ? I saw path autho. It has settings for redirections for nodes, users, and taxonomy ...but how can achieve above ?

An approach could be to use Views and its arguments feature, although that would require an extra term in the URL to specify the view's name.

If #682044: Support fields (CCK) in D7 Bibliography Module is fulfilled, http://drupal.org/project/content_profile may be a solution.

Thank you. We are already using http://drupal.org/project/content_profile and our users profile page links with this module are www.website.com/john/profile same way...for publications its nice to have url like this www.website.com/john/publications ......i hope in D7 , bibilio to CCK support would solve this (but not sure how though...)

Just to clarify, with Views, it would be more like www.website.com/publications/john. Something would have to be to the left of john to specify which view to use unless you did something sophisticated with path handling.

Thanks for clarification. I guess, if Bibilo can become a "content type" in d7, then in URL aliases settings we can define the way we want the URLs .

or any other way ..in that module settings...admin/build/path/pathauto

When you enable "Show publications on users profile pages", this also adds a tab 'Publications' (at least in D7).
Alternatively, you can probably set up a view on user/%/publications with a contextual filter on the user id.

Considering this fixed / closing old issues. Please reopen if the original issue hasn't been addressed.
