Display Name/Username - Mehh - 2019-03-13

I have searched around and found all outdated topics, so wanted to post this up. I'm looking for the ability to have a display name in addition to a login name that the display name will show on posts, profiles, and PM's, as well as throughout the rest of the board. The login names would only be possible to view within the Admin CP.

The easiest way would be to change settings so that people can only log in with their email address. That way, their user name can remain the display name.

Admin CP Home » Board Settings » Login and Registration Options
--> Allowed Login Methods
set to -> Email only
