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.

For some reason, I do not have "edit your details" as a selection for a user profile field?

And it is not showing up in postbit.

Nevermind, it's working now

Hi,

Thanks for this.

I was wondering if it would be possible to create extra user fields and then add them all in the admincp settings separated by a comma or something?

The reason I ask is that I'd like to do something like this. Your mod is the closest thing I've seen and it almost works, but it really needs multiple fields to pull it off I think?

Can it be done, or do I need to look elsewhere?

Thanks very much in advance

Works good too in VB 4.0.8 PL2.
This hack is good but doesn't do exactly what I'm looking for.
I'd like to display the Real Name instead of the user login everytime, not the login and under a line with "Real Name".
Is it possible to do this quite simply ?

Have a think about what your asking ..........

If this was to work as you want it to function then it would rely upon the registered user using his or her "real name" for the login, which some people may not wish to do. The fact is you add your real name to the profile hence the showing of it? It needs to know what is the real name if you see what im saying of course.

Using our real name is the main rule of our league from the beginning there is 10 years ago, so people know this rule when they come in our league.

So yes, that's exactly what I'm looking for : displaying the Real Name instead of the Login

That is probably not possible without major alterations to vBulletin (templates and core file edits).

Hi, we used your hack without any modification without any problem but since two days, the real name field isn't displayed anymore in the postbit.
We didn't do any modification on the forum.
Do you know how we could correct this problem ?
