Would prefer BP not use derivative of eMail address for Username beside Picture

    ISSUE: Would prefer that BuddyPress not use a derivative of the eMail address for the Username that appears beside the Profile Picture. For example, if the eMail address is “Any_User@gmail.com” then the Username beside the Profile Picture shows as Any_Usergmail-com. Is it possible to change this default? I’ve looked everywhere and cannot find anywhere that it is editable.

    WordPress Version: 4.9.7 and installed 6 July 2018
    Active Theme: Twenty Seventeen
    BuddyPress Version: 3.1.0 and installed 18 July 2018.
    Layout Style: BuddyPress Nouveau
    Website Link: https://datm.org/

    If this is not editable, can this be submitted as a suggestion thread?

    Thanks everyone. I am a relative newb to WordPress and just installed BuddyPress today. I really like what I see. I hope everyone is having a great day!

    Cheers! Pastor Dave

    Hmmmmmmm… I have had two additional users sign up with non-gMail eMail addresses and their Usernames came out as I would want mine to. They have signed up in the format of @xyz.com">Any_Name@xyz.com and their Username beside their Profile Picture is Any_Name. There seems to be a bug in BuddyPress Version 3.1.0 with a user having a gMail eMail address.

    How can I resolve this? Anyone?

    Thanks in advance! Pastor Dave

    And finally, I just noticed that this forum is correctly showing my Username as “@pastordatm” which it should be on my site, https://datm.org/ under the Member profiles for BuddyPress.

    QUESTIONS: Is this the correct sub-forum for the BuddyPress developers to see this bug report? Is there a Bugzilla bug tracking log (or similar) that has WordPress User access to see if this bug has been reported before? It may need updating for BuddyPress Version 3.1.0 now.

    As always, thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided towards this issue.

    For bug reports there is https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ by default BP does not use the email address to create the username. If your site is doing that then something is changing the default behaviour of BuddyPress.

    Venutius,

    Yes, it’s very strange. The only time this happened is with me. It is either because there is a bug somewhere due to the gMail address or a bug with the owner of BuddyPress in Version 3.1.0 but it is going to take somebody far smarter than me to figure out this peculiarity. I wonder if somebody at BuddyPress would be willing to log into my site and take a peek at what I am talking about? Meanwhile, I am going to register another user with a gMail address and see if it happens again. Thanks for your reply!

    Cheers! Pastor Dave

    How did you get on? Did it do the same?

    In order to avoid forking the discussion, I’m going to close this thread.
