Re: How to use full name, first name + last name
There are already fields for first_name and last_name in wp_usermeta, so it shouldn’t be necessary to create custom profile fields for them in bp_xprofile.
How can I add these first_name and last_name fields to the registration form, instead of one “Name” field? And how could the one fullname be generated from first_name and last_name?
btw, this is standard across a lot of social media sites. Look at Facebook – aside from the fact that they login with email instead of username, they also have display name, first and last….just like BP can have
Exactly, but how?! Do I really have to get into complicated custom coding to get an “industry standard” registration process?
Where is that built-in “name & last name” feature that Nicola Greco mentioned?
