Hi

How can i show the Real Name instead of User name in all the pages ,. Is there any option for this .

I have installed following modules

Xhelp
NEws
Message Board
Wiwi Mod

How can I make a member use his username to login, but his realname replace the username shown in most pages like who is online, newbb...etc

In NewBB module settings
-------------------------
Show Realname

Replace username with user's real name.
-------------------------
Select yes

with my installation this takes effect sitewide.

OPPs no sorry only within NewBB, but everyone seems happy with that it has never been raised.
Being transgender is NOT a choice.

noo-b,

In XOOPS 2.5.7 ./modules/system/blocks/system_blocks.php replace line 46:

$uname $xoopsUser->getVar('uname');


with

$uname $xoopsUser->getVar('name');


Notice I just removed the "u" for which variable it's retrieving.

This should work... WARNING: I didn't try this so please use with caution... This will "gradually" update your Online block with the correct user name. It depends on what's already in your Online block & cache as to how long it will be beforeit takes effect. I believe if you update the system module after you do this and then clean the XOOPS cache you should see it take effect immediately.
