  • Resolved dains


    I just found this and it does *almost* everything I need it to do, except for hiding the username on the front-end edit page. My project is to provide a site for other people to post, etc., and it uses email login with first and last name displayed. The username is autogenerated from the email (which is a unique) and completely hidden from the user, so they never see or deal with it. Or they shouldn’t, except that Profile Builder pops it right up on the front-end Edit Profile page :\

    So I’m looking for a way to hide the username on the front-end page. I found the code for it in the wppb.edit.profile.php file, but I’m uncertain whether commenting out the field code will cause any issues. Can you let me know if this is ok to do, or if there’s a better way to hide the field?

    Thanks for any help!

  • Forgot to mention, the selector to Hide the username in the Profile Builder options is grayed out. From looking at the code in wppb.edit.profile.php, making that selectable would fix the problem as the code checks to see if it is set to “Show” or not.

    Was there a solution to this? I want to do the same thing but with email, as certain parts of the site are restricted based on the domain of the users email address. Currently using CSS to hide the field, but it’s not exactly hard to get around



    Would be good to make the username not required so we can hide it. This way we can use the other plugins available which allow you to use email address as the username.

    I will note this request and will add it in a future release, in a way or another.




    Thanks Gabriel,

    If you could integrate the option to use email as username within your plugin then that would be good too – just a thought 😉
