To BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE or Not To
I’ve been researching the BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE option in BuddyPress. I’m debating the pros and cons of using it. @DJPaul did a good job of describing what it does like this:
if ( defined( ‘BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE’ ) )
$username = $user_login;
$username = $user_nicename;
I’m interested to know if people have this turned on or off. If you have it turned on, are there issues related to using the user_nicename instead of the user_login? 90% of the time they’re probably the same, but as your site grows there’s more people that will change things. Kind of like I’ve done on this forum. My login is crashutah, but the rest are all techguy.
So, what do you use and what issues have you found with each option?
