Change Howdy Username to Howdy Name

Hello guys!

I hope you are doing great.

I wanted to to change the “Howdy, username” message in the toolbar’s right corner to “Howdy, Name” for all users in my multisite.

How could I accomplish this?

Thank you!

    Hello Rupok

    Thank you for the plugin suggestion.

    I network-activated it, and it is looking great with only one flaw. In order to change the display name, a user must first open his profile page and click save (even with no changed made).

    Is there a way to make it automatic?

    Thank you!

    Hi Carlos, hope you had a wonderful day.

    I just ran it again, but I’m not facing this. I created a fresh new user in my test multisite, activated that plugin network wide, then logged in with that account. Full Name was being shown without doing anything.

    But if that user hasn’t set his First Name and Last Name yet, then username will be shown, and I think it’s logical. Can you please test on another multisite and let us know the result? As this is a third party plugin, we can’t assure we will be able to do much, but we can definitely try to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
