    May I know how/where should I modified to make it using Nickname instead of Username?

    I would like for some user that don't have nickname, in quick chat will display the username while if he have nickname, nickname will be use as first priority.

    You can access that setting in the User's Profile.
    If that doesn't get the job done, contact the plugin author.
    As per the plugin feature highlights
    Site registered users can have their chat nicknames reserved is an option.

    It is a huge problem indeed. Because the Username in WordPress is often the Admin name, many people don't change it and when you connect to Quick Chat, your Username appears. And this can be a security problem.

    The Nickname or 'Display name publicly as' should be shown instead.

    How can we do that? Thanks for your help!

    Sure esmi, since it was the same question as RiseCakoPlusplus with more explanation, I thought it was best to post under the same topic.

    But I will post a new topic, no problem!
