Not Solved [How To?] How is the nick changed?
#1
Not Solved
Hi, 


Is it possible that the nickname, instead of showing the username, shows the name of the person?


For example in this case it is xmartinez. I wanna change it for "Xavier Martinez".

Can we get a link to your site - that image is broken.

If the nickname is stored then you can use it quite easily by modifying the template. The main issue is that unless the nickname is a required field, not everyone will set one, so some users will just have a blank name there.

This will need a custom plugin. As well as a username, you want users to set a "Nick Name" that they'll use on the forum, which MyBB does not support by default.

I was under the impression that when a new user does sign up, they use their nickname, not their real name. 

There have been a few registrations that I have encountered that will have Username, Real Name and so on. 

So, I think whatever the user uses for their Username is considered a nickname because it's not their real name.

I can see what your saying, but I've just referred to a username (what you sign up with), as a username, and a nick name as your full name. Your real alias. You're not wrong it's just the way I've worded it.

OP could probably use custom fields opposed to a custom plugin as well.
