Is it possible to create a Community where people can use thier real names ?
I never thought this would be such an issue, but why can’t you have people use their real names?
You can’t put your real name in the “Username” field because it won’t let you write normally with capitol letters and spaces.
The real names in the profile field don’t show up throughout the site so users can’t search for each other unless they just happen to know the other person’s username.
So the members directory is just a list of anonymous usernames, not a real list of community members.
If Buddypress is indeed good for communities, sports teams, and the like, then why create it for people to hide from each other?
Is it possible to have a community of real people with real names using Buddypress?
Seems like a no brainier…any successful community online is driven by people being able to find each other, not a list of usernames a la Facebook, Linked IN.
After all of the work and development on this program, didn’t it ever occur to anyone that someone may want to really use it as a real community site, with real people that have real names?
Can Buddypress be used with Real Names?
