I'm sure we have all experienced this frustration.
I find that there are TOO MANY name fileds for a user across WP and BP and this can lead to confusion and inconsistency.
There is the username (required), first name, last name, Nickname and I 'm getting in a muddle.
The fact that users can change their BP name is crazy to as it can lead to all kind of duplicate names etc.
I want to display just the members username that they sign up for when they first register with BP to appear across the ENTIRE site if possible?
In activity streams, forum posts, EVEYWHERE. You'll notice that their username never changes with the @mentions but a user can quite easily change the name that will appear in forum posts and activity streams and it can be very confusing when the @username doesn't match the name the user is posting under.
Anyone else having trouble with this?
