Hmm a recent changes list, sounds like a good idea. Expect an update tomorrow to make that possible. Where would you like to see that?

You can now only search in the AdminCP for names and see the list of changes.

Please be clear, does it work or not for you?
I can't edit my postbit like Instructed but, it does work and the rebuild error I'm getting is caused by another hack. Thanks a million. Works perfect. I'm on version 3.5.

Without th edited postbit all will still work, you just don't see history in postbit.

PS Try with a fresh style, or revert your postbit (will remove all modifications) so you can start fresh.

If possible, i'd like this to be a seperate page.

And is it also possible to allow certain people to change only one member (of their choice)'s username?

Marco...

It was the signature limits thingy...lol.

Funny thing is that it never reared it's head until i installed this..so i disabled it for now (The sig limits) until I can get it sorted.

Thanks.

Would adding value="$bbuserinfo[username]" to the Change Username fields have any adverse effect?

Well to make the "Change Username" fields in the User CP appear more like the "Change Email Address" fields above it, I added the current username in the text boxes. I've not looked at the code or checked whether to see this hack will ignore updating the Username if it remains the same as the current one.

I guess I should stop being so lazy and actually look..

It will ignore it if not changed (i think). Since you will most likely not reuse your name, i thought it was useless to prefill with current.

PS Yes take a look, some parts (especially some of the caching in the functions) i am pretty satisfied with.
