Why are display name char amounts not limited?
Isn’t it silly that I can name myself “lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll” and mess up the whole site? Am I missing something?
I understand WP manages display names somehow, but I can’t believe I haven’t found a fix that doesn’t involve modifying WP Core in 3 hours.
What I would want:
usernames displayed everywhere (BuddyPress Usernames Only plugin (still fails when using the search feature – only finds nicknames)).
OR Even better
Users can’t change their nickname (just hiding the box is silly and bypassable).
Nicknames are limited to a certain amount of characters.
