BuddyPress Usernames Only

Override display names across your BuddyPress site with usernames.

I still see some display names on my BP site!

  • If you're using WP 3.0 in network mode and you're seeing display names on blog comments, please try following step 2 in the installation instructions.

The only place you should see a user's display name is on a member's profile, other than that if you notice a display name on any other page on BuddyPress, please let me know!

Internal configuration

By default, display names are enabled in the member header on profile pages. If you prefer usernames to be shown, add the following snippet to your wp-config.php file:

define( 'BP_SHOW_DISPLAYNAME_ON_PROFILE', false );

Requires: WP 3.0 & BuddyPress 1.5 or higher
Compatible up to: WP 3.5.x & BuddyPress 1.7
