Support » Fixing WordPress » Sorting Users by Name Doesn't Work

  • When I am logged into my admin account and go to All Users, sorting by Username or E-mail work fine. If I try to sort by Name it does not work, it just sorts by username.
    Is this a problem with the WP core or is there something else wrong?

    Hi Nathan,

    I just tried it on my 3.5 test build and sorting users by name works as expected. Have you tried deactivating your plugins to see if that narrows down the problem?

    Ah, I figured it out. The sort by Name relies on the “Display name publicly as” setting. So even though a user has a first/last name filled out, that setting must be updated to be their First/Last name.
