smart Custom Display Name

Description

Set your Display Name to anything you like

Usage

The “Display Name” is the name shown as post author – e.g. “posted by John Doe”. WordPress only allows you to select from a few given values. This plugin changes the Display Name field to a regular text input field where you can type in anything you like. There are no settings. Just install and activate.

FAQ

What about an empty Display name?

WordPress does not allow an empty Display name and resets the Display name to the Username on saving if its blank. You don’t have to care about.

Where can I find the settings page?

Nowhere – the plugin does not need any config.
