Re: How to use full name, first name + last name
OK… So what does that mean practically?
Haha! Well, good question.
WPMU is not designed as a user-centric platform. It is blog-centric. BuddyPress puts the focus on the user.
So, my best advice is that you will have to do as Mike Pratt suggests and then code a custom function to extract the new firstname and lastname data from an xprofile table as you see fit, or just output that data in your theme files.
As far as registration, have you looked at Mike’s site (http://buglenotes.com/register) to see what he does? If that is what you want, you should PM him and get more advice.
