Automatically set Display name to users Wordpress nickname
Hi and thank you for a great plugin!
I'm running a forum for internet an alphabets. When registering I use registration magic plugin which changes wordpress username to e-mailadress.
Is there a way to automatically change the Display name and the @Nickname name to Wordpress nickname? As of now the WP Foro Display name and @Nickname shows the users e-mail address.
With best regards,
WordPress and wpForo have three different names for Users:
- Username (Login) – Being used for forum authorization (login, sign-in) action
- Display Name – Other users and guests see in user profile details and next to user posts (post author name).
- Nickname – Unique name which is used in WordPress and wpForo core to generate user Profile URL. In other words, this is the user slug. For example example.com/community/profile/martin59/.
After a regular user registration process, Username, Display Name and Nickname are set the same. For example, If you register a user with “Martin59” Username your user names look like this:
- Username – Martin59
- Display Name – Martin59
- Nicename – martin59
So wpForo just shows the fields and it gets from Wordpress. The plugin you're using for registration is set the users e-mail address as a nickname and wpForo just shows those emails as a nickname. This should be configured by the registration plugin you're using but not the wpForo side.
