  • Change display names?

    Imported from smf to vbulletin, and used tohave different display names to the user id

    eg,

    Login: Johncitizen
    password: XXX



    Display name: Johhno


    Is this possible in vbulletin or does it have to keep the login name as the display name?

    Many thanks!!

    Display names is a feature that's been asked for as a default vBulletin feature, so no, it's not possible default.

      So there is no way at all? not even editing the user details on the database somehow?

        You could probably create a custom profile field, but it won't hide their username everywhere (like when sending PMs). You can most likely create customer profile and then edit the templates. I'm not familiar with the display name feature from SMF, so I don't know how extensive and how much it replaces, but chances are it won't be as in-depth as it was in SMF.
