    Hi all,
    Trying to manage firstnames and lastnames for my users, i’d like to know how to easily get those fields in my theme in order to build a (firstname, lastname) list for all users. Can anyone give me a tip on how to do that ?

    Thanks !

    You can’t. It’s a design decision by Andy Peatling/Automattic not to support firstname and lastname, because it would offend international users. And most of the BP users community love anonymous usernames, because they use Buddypress primarily as an old-fashioned forum. You’ll have to custom code something. Good luck!

    Hi, sorry for not responding earlier. First thing, thanks for your reply.

    Then, by “custom code”, do you mean i’ll need to do something trickier than a plugin for example ? My plan was to manage some new fields in the WP usermeta table, i think that will be enough, am i Wrong ?

    Thanks again,
    hms.
