    I have a members page set up that’s currently using First and Last Name as the display name but I would like to change it to Nickname. I didn’t see an option for that so I’m not sure if I missed it or if there’s a reason it’s not included in the attributes. I tried username but I don’t feel comfortable displaying the username of my customers/members for security purposes and some of them also use their email address as their username which they do not want displayed and usernames cannot be edited in wordpress. What would be the solution to this?

    Hi,

    I have a members page set up that’s currently using First and Last Name as the display name but I would like to change it to Nickname.

    I am not sure what you mean. Can you provide more information.

    Thank you

    On the Members directory display page I was able to remove their email and other personal info from showing. However, In order for me to display their username instead of their full name, it creates an issue for our customers because some of them are using their email as their username and do now want that public. WordPress does not allow you to change your username so I’m not going to ask that all my customers create a new account. That would be silly and most will just delete their accounts. I would like to use the wordpress field of NICKNAME as the display instead for the directory pages.

    Hi, I am not sure if that is possible. However I have submitted a message to the developers to investigate further your request.

    Kind regards

    We don’t have an option to show nickname unfortunately.

    I just think it’s pretty unsafe to show customer usernames since that’s half the login but using the first and last name can also be a privacy issue. Allowing for nickname would give the customers privacy by being able to choose their display name without having to change their first and last name. Changing the first and last name will affect the account’s ability to properly place orders using the website’s online store.
