View Full Version : Display Real Names

I run a vB4 board for a large intranet. User names in an enterprise environment aren't always intuitive or useful (e.g. A3293921). I created a number of plug-ins and template tweaks for displaying a user's real name in vB4. The real name is stored in user profile fields and populated by active directory.

Is there anything in vB5 that will allow me to skip all the custom plug-ins and just natively display a real name? I noticed over on vbulletin.com that some users have real names while others have usernames. I want to force real names on all my users!

Thanks!

Not right now, I don't think userprofile fields can be displayed in the postbit either.
