  • Anyone have any ideas that can point me in the right direction? I’d greatly appreciate it~

    Yay, I found a plugin that disables display names and forces to show the username on all your bbpress. You can find the plugin here:

    I’ve tested it on bbpress version 1.0.2 integrated with buddypress and wordpress 2.9.2 and so far no bugs.

    @intimez Thank you for your reply. I’m currently using that plugin that @r-a-y created and it works great with my buddypress/group forums however I also have an external bbpress install so I can have a true forum for my website as well. It uses the same table as wordpress and buddypress and I have it fully integrated however it’s pulling through the Name field that is required in buddypress and using it as the post author. Since I have the usernames plugin enabled I would like the bbpress external forum to show the usernames instead of the Name.

    I hope this helps explain my situation better.

    @xberserker No problem, thank YOU for putting it together!

    @thekmen Yup, your exactly right. Simply put the gifts folder with the screen.php file inside into your child theme and then when you upgrade your changes will still be there.

    I got it working, you can take a look at what I changed here:

    It’s my full screen.php file, I didn’t change much.. just mainly changed things to else: and endif; on the lines that you added and that got it working for me.

    Thank you again!


    Thank you so much for taking the time to put this together. I checked out the URL and replaced my screen.php with the one that you provided in your link however when I click on my gift link ( I get the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-gifts/includes/templates/gifts/screen.php on line 1

    If I copy and paste in the code that you added on line 56 and line 139 I get the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-gifts/includes/templates/gifts/screen.php on line 121

    My line 121 is: <!– ___________________________________CubePoints Buddypress Integration__________________ –>

    Also, do you know if its possible for users to send gifts to themselves? Kind of like a store so they can buy things for themselves as well using their points? Just curious~

    Thanks for the update :3

    @xberserker Thank you I appreciate it~

    @r-a-y — Thank you so much for your quick reply! That seems to have fixed the issue perfectly. Now I’m one step closer to launching my site ^_^ Thanks again~

    I vote to show the display name on the member’s profile page as well! Thank you for sharing to comment out line 17 in bp-usernames-only.php, it worked perfectly!

    I’m receiving the same error as @gregfielding and @anton – MU 2.9.2 BP 1.2.3 “Could not retrieve details for userid….please try again” unfortunately had to disable :(

    Just wanted to update to say that I temporarily got it working using:

    bp_has_groups( ‘search_terms=beta&max=1’ )

    The only thing that worries me is that I need to prevent users from registering any groups that have the name ‘beta’ in it now. Is there a way to ‘blacklist’ a certain group name from being created?

    Seems as though I can just put a space between the search terms so I simply put beta tester and all seems well ^_^

    Now it looks like:
    ( bp_has_groups( ‘search_terms=beta tester&max=1’ )
