I use WordPress 5.2.3
and BuddyPress 5.0.0.
Many have already asked to change @mentions from @username to @display_name but this is difficult and unfortunately I have not found an answer. Attempting to hide username is understandable for security reasons. However, I have another question. Can this problem be resolved without changing @mentions but the login method?
If instead of the username in the login field allow only login by e-mail and disable login by username without removing it from BuddyPress, the problem of hiding the @username will disappear. Is it possible to login only via email without deleting your username?
If so, the displayed name will become redundant and can be removed from the registration form.
How to do it and does it make sense?
