I trying to populate the First and Last name fields and can't seem to locate the member field to do that. I'm wanting the gain the legal first and last names of my members and have it fill into the first and last name fields on the forum. Can you direct me to the member field that fulfills this please or guild me to what I'm doing wrong ty.

Hi @william-cramer,

I don't follow you well. Please let us know have you already created the fields via the plugins? Don't you add the fields in the Account page?

In the WP user section there is First Name and Last Name, I am trying to get the addon to populate these fields as it does with username and nickname. I hope this clears my question up, sorry for the confusion.

Thank you for clarification @william-cramer

I'm sorry, but the add-on is not designed to synchronize with existed fields. It allows you to create any new fields you want. 

The username and nickname are wpForo fields the addon doesn't have any relation with those fields.

So that’s exactly what I want to add to is the  wpForo field First name and Last name, how can I do that? The addon allows me to populate the wpForo username, nickname, & display name but I also need the First & Last name too.

I’m confused, I’m trying to populate the wpLast Name and wpFirst Name fields. If you goto Dashboard> Users> Select any user> First Name and Last Name this is what I’m trying to populate. 

Currently I can use wpForo> wpUser Custom Fields to allow users during registration to populate wpUsername, wpNickname, or wpDisplay Name and I would like to be able to have the users additionally populate wpLast Name & wpFirst Name during the same registration. What I get currently is a wpForoFirst Name wpForoLast Name field that’s populated but it does not populate the wpFirst Name or wpLast Name which is what displays in the wpDashboard> Forums> Users> under Name. 

I hope this clears things up!
