Editing the base URL in functions_content.php will work. While i was looking at a better way of doing this.

In functions_content.php, there is a function get_username_string().

This has an optional 6th parameter which allows you to set the alternative profile url.

To use this option, you are going to have to patch all the places where the url is used and not patch those where an alternative is already provided.

The function get_username_string() is called 209 times in 31 files. Some with the additional parameters.

If you had a mod, it would simply be altering the code anyway, so do it and create a patch, allowing you to upgrade and reapply the patch when you need to.

Also, a lot of places call memberlist directly. 69 mentions in 31 files (may not be 100% accurate).

'C'! A 'C'???

I think that's my first C in 10 years.

Normally, you reply with something and then we improve it to get you to a point where you are really happy.

Considering your question was a 1 liner, there wasn't much to go on.
