how can I prevent last name from showing everywhere?

  • I’d prefer to not have last names shown everywhere, instead of bp_user_fullname() is there a bp_user_firstname? Actually, I’d prefer to show just the username… My blog is in Washington DC, so privacy is a real concern.

    So instead of “Vincent Macaluso’s blogs” or “Vincent Macaluso posted a blog entry” it would say “nolageek’s blogs” etc..

    This should be an admin option, and will likely be added sometime before the first release. Right now the easiest way to stop this is to modify the bp_user_fullname() function as this will change it everywhere.

    Line 243 of bp-xprofile-templatetags.php

    function bp_fetch_user_fullname( $user_id = false, $echo = true ) {
    global $bp;

    if ( !$user_id )
    $user_id = $bp['current_userid'];

    $ud = get_userdata($user_id);

    if ( $echo )
    echo $ud->user_login;
    else
    return $ud->user_login;
    }

    This is just a temporary solution, and it will break in the future. It should tide you over until a better option is available.

    Perfect! Thanks!
