My little registering nightmare
i registered a user with name Doe
and first name John with email abc@mail, username: jodo, role:admin
what happens if i register another user with name Doe, firstname Bob, username: bodo and email opm@mailthis, role:author ?
At first nothing: profiles showing up correctly. Posts authors also. But after a few other tests…
For exemple, a message send to Bob Doe goes to John Doe.
Some little problems appears time to time from into plugins or so.
The only way i found to avoid this is to register members with first name last name in the same name input box. In fact, the Basic field. That’s ok when i do this myself. But not ok at all if user register themselve. And not good at all too if people wear the same name.
Creating additionnal fields like nickname or what else related to names don’t take effect against this naming system. As it seems that the only sorting name routine is working on “basic” name.
Is this right ?
