Forum 17B _ Bug / Improvements _ How To Set Your Steam Profile Link Correctly?

Posted by: rUsHnUt 13/01/2024 - 16:37:27

Hi there,

This might be a noob question but I seem to not be able to correctly set my Steam profile URL inside my profile settings.

When I copy the link of my Steam profile, which is the steamID64 ( ), the site automatically transforms it into

So the forum puts "" in front of whatever you type in that box.
I also tried using my steam3ID & steamID32 without succes.

Can't for the life of me figure out any link that starts with "" that would lead to my Steam profile...
Am I really being daft or is this site not up to date with possibly renewed URL structure of Steam profiles?

Did you try using another web browser?

I didn't before your comment.
Now that I did I can tell it's the same.

I'm pretty sure the url structure of Steam profiles were different at the time this site, and in particular this function, saw the daylight.
And it haven't been changed ever since.

I have fouund a couuple of 17buddies users with working Steam profile links in their account:

Looks like it can only work if you set a custom url, which is a function inside Steam, since all their Steam prrofles contain "id" and then a chosen nickname behind it, instead of the default "profiles" and then a big number behind it.

Basicly all that needs to be done is the removal of the prefix ( read OP for this ). Then all Steam URL's, default and custom, will be displayed correctly.

P.s.: I'm used to that so don't worry too much.
