Support » Plugin: Ultimate Member - User Profile & Membership Plugin » Username and Display name: Custom validation

  • Hi guys!
    Thanks for the great plugin! I am pleasantly surprised by its capabilities and I gave it a 5-star rating.

    @ultimatemembersupport
    Please, could you help me with the following issue:
    I want users to fill out two fields in the registration form:
    1) Username (Login)
    2) Nickname (Display name)

    The above two fields should be different from each other.
    Is it possible to configure such a check?

    I guess I should set up some sort of Custom Validation.
    But what exactly should I put in the “Custom Action” field?

    Thank you!

    Hi @crazytriangle,

    Thanks for your review, our team works hard to provide even more great features in the future updates.

    I suggest using these settings:
    Username field – Validate – Unique username.
    Nickname filed – Validate – Unique metakey value.
    This way you won’t need custom validation function.
    Validate dropdown can be found on the edit field dialog.

    Regards.

    Hi @ultimatemembersupport!
    I’ve applied the settings you recommend.
    Unfortunately, it didn’t work.

    My actions:
    1) Username field – Validate – Unique username.
    Nickname filed – Validate – Unique metakey value.

    2) I cleared WordPress cache.

    3) I purged Cloudflare cache.

    4) I updated the Register page (just by resaving it).

    5) I restarted my browser.

    But the plugin still allows user to register an account with the same “Username” and “Nickname” fields. (“Username” = “Nickname”)

    So I still need your help 🙂
    Thank you!
