    Hi,

    i got a wordpress instance from former admin with ultimate member in use.

    my problem is that the given username in registration form is displayed nowhere. in the user view the nickname is a combination of forename and surname.

    i checked the settings but i cannot find a connection from the username input field of the registration form to the username / nickname “cell” of the user view….

    it is a big problem, because users try to login with the given username – they do not know that it is gone and replaced by “forenamesurname” of course.

    Hi @gluehbirne

    I apologize but it’s not clear what issue you’re having. Could you please provide a video clip so we can see the issue clearly?

    Hi @champsupertramp,

    okay, sorry. i try it with more details:

    I got a registration form:
    input field username, input field forename, input field surname, input field mail.

    if i fill it with e.g. username = mysuperusername, forename = james, surname = bond, mail = mail@test.de. after submitting the user is generated, but the username in wordpress admin panel and ultimate member dashboard is now “jamesbond” instead of my choosen username “mysuperusername”.

    i cannot figure out why this happens. on a blank install of wordpress and ultimate member this effect is not there. now my suggestion is that there is any config option to generate usernames like ‘forenamesurname’.

    hopefully now it is a bit clearer. english is not my native language :-/

    Hi @gluehbirne

    Are you sure that the username field has a meta/field key user_login?
