How to use Username instead of Name ?
I want to use wordpress username in every field of my site instead of buddypress’ “Name”. Is it possible to disable the whole name system and use Username instead or to hide Name from every possible field and display Username instead.
I’m totally newbie to this whole coding stuff, found a code and managed to hide “Name” field in profile edit but this is only preventing from changing it. I need to disable it or change it’s usage to Username. (in Activity feed, mentions & comments at least)
In case anybody wonders what did I use for hiding Name from profile edit section;
//only disable these fields on edit page
//please change it with the name of fields you don’t want to allow editing
$flds=$fields[$i];//doh, I did not remember a way to reset the index, so creating a new array
Added this code to bp-members-functions.php
