This is an old post, but have you found a solution? I have the exact same problem. I need a new user to be redirected to profile edit page to enter the email address.
The ability to easily rename route slugs is high on my wishlist. For example, I'd like to have
/forums/ instead of
/forum/3/ instead of
/members/ instead of
Currently, routes seem to be hard-coded and changing them is kind of difficult.
It would probably be better to be able to add alias's for them. Since if you can easily change them, it would easily invalidate a lot of links.
@yariplus I think the alias idea is a bad one because you'd end up with lots of duplicate content.
@henrywright Ah right. Could go either way..
Well aliasing wouldn't create duplicate content, you would just exclude the duplicate routes from your robots.txt
@pitaj that's true but if not done properly, aliasing links could be very dangerous for a site's search engine ranking. Personally, I wouldn't go down that route (no pun intended ha).
