Buddypress Profile "@username" to use "@nickname" instead.

So, I have a site which uses facebook login, and it automatically designates the username based on the real name data from facebook. I'd like to have people select a username in the extended profile - and I'd like THAT name/nickname designation used on the buddypress user's profile. :slight_smile: Any feedback or ideas would be awesome. Thanks bunches.

    Hi BigCat,

    Hope you are doing good today. :slight_smile:

    Not sure whether I get your question, by default users can change the name they want to display in the profile by editing their profile in the front end, and also through the dashboard under Profile menu. Doesn't the facebook plugin allow that option? Or you want to display nickname of the users in the profile by default? Maybe you could use a plugin like this:

    Please advise if I'm missing out anything, and enable support access, so that we could check how your current configuration works, and have a better idea about this issue. You can grant access from WPMU DEV > Support > Support Access > Grant Access, or check this manual: http://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-dev-dashboard-enabling-staff-login/

    Please let us know once you enable access, so that we could get this sorted. Have a nice day. :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
    Nithin
