User Display Name Hack

vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 4

Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

User Display Name Hack v0.2
-Updated HTML file

User Display Name Hack v0.1
-Release

Hello this is my first hack so don't really have much to say but here it goes:

This hack will allow for a user to enter their display name to use in the forum instead of the default username. It requires a display name profile field to be created, if there is not a display name field then nothing will be displayed. This hack fixes it so that the normal Username display is replaced withthe new userdisplay field name all over the forum. This has been tested and it works. I will only offer support in the vbulletin.org hacking forum for this hack. Teh amount for support I can provide is limited as I have a very busy schedule right now and just put this hack together.

If you see another place that the userdisplayname should be used just post it here and I will see if I can add it in sometime.

I think that is basically it.

If you could all test it out for me and tell me if it works for you then that would be a great help

Screenshots

My username for my board is Foxtroter but with the display name hack it shows ->SOF<-Foxtroter-|CSN|- as shown below

Actually, stay tuned for my version.... I've added a new field to the user table, allowing me to add a new index and perform a check against other users having the same Displayed Name.

BTW, if anyone gets any ideas...
1] I'm not trying to discredit the work being done on this particular hack.
2] I needed this for my own forums, and started writing it before I saw this one
3] I am using all MY original code.

I definately agree on that one

BTW, hellsatan, I'll send you the hack as soon as I've got everything else worked out, and then you could see about the search engine stuff. I appreciate it.

And obviously, I'm not trying to use this thread to steal Foxtroter's fire. I think he did a great job with the beginnings of this hack, and in my readme I've giving him credit even though I'm not using any of his code.

Looks like a sweet hack. Although, you might want to include a sensor.

sorry guys about lack of updates and DraX no worries and i hope to look forward to your hack, mine kinda just lost it's fire on its own because of my lack of attention to it.


also sorry for bumping this old post up
