Always on the list will come the default nickname is the style of the group.

*Important:

For operation of the plugin to edit the functions.php file that is inside root / inc if your file is modified and will have to modify it again to add the following.

Open your functions.php file with some preferred editor notepad + + and look for the following

function format_name($username, $usergroup, $displaygroup="")
{
	global $groupscache, $cache;

	if(!is_array($groupscache))
	{
		$groupscache = $cache->read("usergroups");
	}

	if($displaygroup != 0)
	{
		$usergroup = $displaygroup;
	}

	$ugroup = $groupscache[$usergroup];
	$format = $ugroup['namestyle'];
	$userin = substr_count($format, "{username}");

	if($userin == 0)
	{
		$format = "{username}";
	}

	$format = stripslashes($format);

	return str_replace("{username}", $username, $format);
}


and replacing this

function format_name($username, $usergroup, $displaygroup="")
{
	global $groupscache, $cache, $db;

	if(!is_array($groupscache))
	{
		$groupscache = $cache->read("usergroups");
	}

	if($displaygroup != 0)
	{
		$usergroup = $displaygroup;
	}

	$ugroup = $groupscache[$usergroup];
	$format = $ugroup['namestyle'];
	$userin = substr_count($format, "{username}");

	if($userin == 0)
	{
		$format = "{username}";
	}

	$format = stripslashes($format);
	
	if($db->table_exists("nickstyles_nicks"))
	{
		global $db;
		$query = $db->simple_select('users', 'nickstyle', "username='{$username}' AND usergroup='{$usergroup}'");
		$user = $db->fetch_array($query);
		if(!empty($user['nickstyle']))
		{
			$query = $db->simple_select('nickstyles_nicks', 'style', 'nid='.$user['nickstyle']);
			$style = $db->fetch_array($query);
			$format = $style['style'];
			$format = stripslashes($format);
			return str_replace("{username}", $username, $format);
		}
		else
		{
			return str_replace("{username}", $username, $format);
		}
	}

	return str_replace("{username}", $username, $format);
}

and if it is modified to put the functions.php that is inside the attachment.

1. Why not use profile fields?
2. If you used profile fields you can get rid of the extra queries in the function by using user global.
3. You can also create a cache of the nick styles and use that to avoid the queries too.

Every time format_name runs you now run 2 queries. On a showthread this is potential for a lot of load.

Cache the nickstyles_nicks table. Make your plugin more efficient.
