[resolved] Display nickname instead of username on posts (4 posts)

    I'd like my posts to say "By [nickname]" instead of "By [username]" while still linking to an author page.

    Is that possible and how?

    Yes, it is possible. Go to Users => User Profile and change the nickname in the "Nickname" field to whatever you wish.

    I actually did that, but nothing changed :(

    Do I need to add or change code somewhere so it pulls in the nickname? Right now it's pulling in my email address (username) associated with my account.

    I am sorry if my answer was late. but the solution above are not quite right as the OP wants to change the displayed name by nickname. To do that, all you need to change are "Display name publicly as" right under the Nickname colomn. You can choose several names available.

    Hope this help
