In progress Username as First + Last name?

Post by HogwartsAcademy on March 25th 2013, 11:29 pm

So as my Harry Potter Role-Play Forum, I want my members/students to have first+last names, as characters (made up.) Instead of usernames such as "Broomstick331" and "HarryPPotterrrrr999s" and stuff like that. I want them to be clean and simple, like "Maurice Wellington" and "Adam Lestringth" or something.

Like this:

Thanks mates, if you can help!

Create those fields:
Administration Panel > Users & Usergroups > Users > Profiles.

But if you want this to be their usernames, they will have to enter them when they register in the username box.

Yes, I know I can do that but I want to make it so that their Username does not say "Username" but "First Name" and "Last name" instead so that whatever they input for the two fields will be joined together and create their username.

I do not know if there is anyway to achieve that.

No I don't think you can change the names of any of the default fields on the registration forum,such as username or email address etc.
But what you can do is create an additional custom profile field yourself, and call it first name, or real name,as I have done on my forum.
You could make this either an optional or a mandatory profile field.
