usernames only

    Anyone have a current solution for displaying only usernames across BuddyPress, instead of usernames + display names?

    I’ve gotten too many complaints from members who keep getting confused (because the same person has different names, in different places).

    I’ve been searching the web for hours, with no luck. I did find this:

    BuddyPress Usernames Only

    But it seems to be abandoned and it throws php error in my logs. I’ve seen a couple other functions, but nothing seems updated or seems to work.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I’ve looked at BuddyPress Usernames Only and have come up with a fix for it. I’m trying to get in touch with the plugin author to see if we can push out a fix. If you are able to edit the plugin I can let you know what the fix is.

    The plugin hasn’t been abandoned. It’s still maintained by @r-a-y. See https://github.com/r-a-y/buddypress-usernames-only

    Well, that’s great news!

    Do you suggest to download the recent version from Githb, and if so, do I just click the “Clone or Download” button, and select the zip option?

    Also, just curious why author might keep updated version on Github, and not on WordPress.org?

    I’m asking because I’m wondering if there are other plugins on Github I need to explore!

    Thank you for the replies and the clarification.

    wordpress.org uses Subversion for version control and GitHub uses Git. Some developers just prefer to develop using Git and then post releases to wordpress.org
