A new approach to usernames
I am part of the political party on here that likes usernames displayed in the profile and as the logged in name. Part of the reason is that we run a nonprofit sports community and there are some folks who would prefer that their names be hidden.
My proposed fix is really a bandaid approach rather than a permanent fix but with 722 members about to be imported, it seems the easiest first step: MySql query: replace display_name data with user_nicename.
I have tried manually doing that with a few select members and it seems to work for some user records but not others.
Thanks for your thoughts in advance.
