Member Directory – order by first name?

    It seems to me (and I may be alone on this) but when most people come to a member directory, then expect the letters at the top (A, B, C, etc) to refer to a person’s last name, not their first name. But that’s not how BuddyPress has it working. It make sense for people who are using an alias or username, but not for people who are using their real name.

    It would be great, for example, if there was a way to see if there is a space in the name and make sure it gets put in the directory under the second (or last name) instead of the first name.

    Any work around around for this?

    Thanks

  • Not unless you want to code it yourself. Suggest you make an enhancement ticket on http://trac.buddypress.org/.

    Thanks…do you know where the sql is that pulls the list for the members page? Or which forum I might find someone who knows where this sql is? I may try coding this myself if I can find it.

    Hi, I believe what you’re looking for is in the bp-core folder > bp-core-classes.php

    Hope that helps
