    Sorry for my bad english i hope you understand me.
    As i know when somebody register in buddypress, there are 2 fields, Display Name and Username, and that fields in the WordPress Profiles use to be Username, First Name, Last Name and both names make the Nickname Field, that was before i upgrade to BP 1.5.5 now the name in the BP fiields just gives the Nickname to the WP Profile, and if a user chage its Display Name on BP, the Nickname get erased and the WP Profile and the user have no name on bb Forums and if i need to do something in the WP Profiles i have to give them a Name or a Nickname and choose the field “Display name publicy as” to get a user have a name in bbForums and in WP, im shure its a bug but i dont know how to find it and fix it.

    In the Buddypress Settings menu, do you have the “Disable BuddyPress to WordPress profile syncing?” set to “No”?

    What versions of BP/WP did you upgrade from? You mentioned webpages from two years ago. If you upgraded from BP 1+/WPMU, then you have to upgrade major version by major version as in BP1.0+ to BP1.2/WPMU 2.9.1 to BP1.5/WP3.2.1 to BP1.5.5/WP3.3.2
    WP versions download – https://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/

    Deactivate all plugins except BuddyPress and change to bp-default theme to begin isolating what’s causing the strange behavior.

    This Plugin may help, tested on a single site, hasn’t been tested on a multi-site install. I was having the same issue, so I had this developed. Let me know if it works for you.

    FYI: I submitted it to WP for inclusion in their repository, should be there soon.
