Removing "members" from BP URLs

Hi: I've noticed that there are a few plugins that will shorten BP URLs like mysite.com/members/username to just mysite.com/username , removing "members" from the URL string. Instead of loading one of these plugins, I assume there is a way I can do this by modding either the site .htaccess file and/or possibly the wp-config file. Anyone know the specific code that would accomplish this? My thanks in advance --

    Greetings conkhead,

    Thank you for the great question and I would indeed try one of the plugins considering they will specialize in dealing with the slugs and permalinks which a simple 301 redirect is certainly not going to handle correctly.

    Please advise on any issues you come up with, if any, when trying one of these plugins.

    I have not personally tried one of the plugins for this purpose so I have no experience to draw on recommending one over another.

    Looking forward to hearing about your results in any event.

    Cheers, Joe
