What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.8.x version of this hack, designed to work with vBulletin v4.0.x.

A very simple hack to display your real name in your profile and postbit (or postbit legacy), just like here at vBulletin.org.

If no real name is entered, then it will not display in the postbit (or postbit legacy).

DEMO: View it in action here.

This hack was created because of a request by Hannan here.


Limitation with this hack

People keep asking for usergroup permissions for this hack.

While this would easy to implement, what people fail to realise is that User Profile Fields are not controlled by usergroup permissions at all, and even if usergroup permissions were added to this hack, the User Profile Fields would still be viewable by members even if they do not have permissions to use them.

User Profile Fields are either viewable by all or viewable by none, this is how they were implemented in vBulletin by design, there is no in between with User Profile Fields.

So, I will not be adding usergroup permissions to this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.2.0.

For the v3.8.x version of this hack, which will also work with v3.7.x and v3.6.x - check here.

Anyway you could do this without creating a profile field? I know its small potatoes but just trying to get around that. Perfect positioning on the profile tab!!!

1. Just a small issue... In the postbit, it is showing the title as "Real Name", instead of the title of the field as defined (I use "Full name" for example). on the member info page, it shows up correctly.

2. can we have an option to hide the full name from not logged in users?

3. also, wonder if it possible to show the Full name more prominently, esp in the member info page (say just below/instead of the username).

thx

ndahiya

Hi all,

It is with regret that after over 4 years (and thousands of hours) spent providing free support for my free hacks released here, as of today I will no longer be able to provide support for free.

This is due to being unemployed for a while, being strapped for cash and unable to rely on the virtually non-existant donations from here to help to pay the bills or put food on the table for my family. I am now providing all support for my free hacks released here over at Wolfshead Solutions via an annual support subscription (for a small fee).

It does not mean I will be no longer release free hacks, I will, I just no longer be supporting them for free.

My free hacks have and always will remain free to download and use. And so will updates/bug fixes.

I will be releasing more free hacks, but if you require any support at all for those free hacks, you will need to purchase an annual support subscription over at Wolfshead Solutions to receive support.

I am really sorry I have to do this, but revenue generated by my programming gigs are now my only source of income, and I can no longer afford the luxury of providing free support here, when that time can be spent creating new commerial products, doing paid work requests or providing paid support to pay the bills.

Thank you for the understanding.

Regards,

Mosh.

This hack already works with vBulletin 4.0.2, which is why it does not need to be updated.
