how to change user profile info and slug

    a member of one of my sites joined over a year ago. since then, i’ve changed this users name to just the person’s initials. buddypress somehow found the person’s full real name and that’s the member slug and the person’s full name is displaying in their profile.

    can you tell me how to make modifications to the member profiles including changing their slug (url)?

    sincerely,

    tried the plugin which lets me change my own display name,

    how can i as admin change the member slug (or how can i let users change that slug themselves)?
    how can i as admin change other user details?

    it’s odd because i don’t know how buddypress is “remembering” these names. also, i use wishlist member, and the names there are different. the wishlist member names are the same as the wordpress names, but buddypress seems to have gotten and be using names gathered somewhere else (maybe upon initial sign up)?

    best,

    so i wound up going into the db and changing it. am kinda considering dropping buddypress. i really appreciate your considerate response, for me, that has been an exception in the buddypress community.
