Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. You can now check out the 3.8.x version of this hack, as it also works with v3.7.5, v3.6.12 (and maybe even earlier versions).

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with v3.6.10 and v3.7.x. This has not been tested with earlier versions of v3.6.x, but should work.


What Does This Hack Do?

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).


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

Uninstall Instructions

I'd love to see this developed so the real name can be inserted into other pages.

NOTE: If already installed on v3.7.x, then there is no need to update to this version, as there are no functional changes. This is only for new installations, it now caters for v3.6.10 as well as v3.7.x.

Yes there is, but you would manually have to alter postbit and/or postbit_legacy templates, as there is no template hook available at that location and an automatic insertion can not be performed without adding around twice the code this hack already has. So, that is something you will have to look into and sort out yourself if you want it above the join date, as most of this simple hack would have to be rewritten to accomplish that, and I am not willing to do it.

You just need to add a new template hook. I used


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and then edited my postbit_legacy template:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I then edited the plugin to change the template hook to the new one:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you want the real name to appear above the join date, just move the new template hook to after the <br />. You can do the same with the postbit template. This is not a difficult process: you just need to insert the new template hook wherever you want it (one line of code) and then edit the plugin (the same one line to replace the current template hook). That's it.
