[resolved] Bulk import resets "Display name publicly as" (3 posts)

    Is there anyone to change the fact that when you do the build import/update it resets what people have set the field "Display name publicly as" to?

    So in bulkimport.php line 288 the display name is set.
    $display_name = $this->_get_display_name_from_AD($username, $userinfo);

    Then it immediately checks to create new user or update them. On the else statement to update I added
    $display_name = $user->display_name;

    This way if the user had changed their display name the bulk import would not override their settings.

    Hi Steve,
    I won't add an option to allow users to change their display name, sorry.
