    @nig3d

    in order to work with the latest version of BP, but it’s not covering ALL the places where the names are displayed. Too many add filters.
    I used as reference the new bp-user-names only plugin, but I’m not quite finished yet.
    does somebody want to help me?
    does somebody want to point me out to the functions used to display the names? Are they all in side bp-core-templatetags file?

    btw, for who wants to help me, these are the functions I have identified so far:

    add_filter(‘bp_get_member_name’, ‘bp_the_site_member_realname’);
    add_filter(‘bp_get_displayed_user_fullname’, ‘bp_the_site_member_realname’);
    add_filter(‘bp_get_loggedin_user_fullname’, ‘bp_the_site_member_realname’ );

    it looks like nobody is interesting on it, well I will publish it as alpha version next weekend and then we will see.
    I just noticed that to display exactly the same thing (the name of the logged in user for example), several functions are used in several places, a little mess.
    I will investigate on it and post some tickets if needed.

    +1 intrested in this..please letme know wen u manage to finish it

    Have you contacted the BP-real names plugin creator? That sounds like the first place to go to find people that are interested.

    I wouldn’t use the same function across multiple filters… since each filter is different.

    Thank you r-a-y, are you the author of username only plugin?
    Yes I realized that after I posted it and I have already changed the functions.
    About the author: no, I haven’t contacted him, but since the last release of the pluing, BP changed a LOT of functions, so the author should have studied the same code I’m studying. Nevertheless I will contact him since anyway I’m using his code :D

    @nig3d – What questions do you have? I’ll try to answer them. But it’s always best to dig through the code yourself to find out which functions do what.

    ok as promised I link the modified plugin. It’s not complete yet and I’m sharing it just because I know I couldn’t work on it at least for 2 weeks so if anybody wants to finish it, I think the original author won’t mind it. I won’t by sure.

    this is the temporary link:

    http://gameprog.org/buddypress-real-names.zip

    unzip it in the folder wp-content/plugin

    then use the dashboard to install it SITE-WIDE (otherwise it won’t work)

    then go to the x-profile setup and add a mandatory text box (I suggest to do it at least), called surname (or what you prefer)

    then add a new, NOT mandatory text box, you can call it “complete name: or such.

    then on the buddypress setup, you can click on the new real-name plugin setup.

    Choose the correct base field to use and the options you need.

    Of course the “real-names” won’t work until the user profile won’t be rebuild or modified.

    With the current version more or less half of the places where the username is usually shown, will show the name and surname.

    Unluckily BP is a mess with the username management and there are so many different functions to show the names that track all of them is a good effort.

    DO NOT USE for production version of BP.

    I will try to finish it if I will have the time, ray plugin is very useful to track all the functions used to show the username, but even ray had to make some nasty hacks to make them work almost everywhere.

    if you want to have a look, suggestions are quite appreciated, thanks!
    if you want to help to finish the update, it will be appreciated too, because I need the plugin if I want to finish the professional social network I’d like to create.
