Yes you can create whatever custom profile fields you want, and display your nickname, or even your real name that way. The custom profile fields can be displayed in both your profile and posts. You can also make the profile fields mandatory on registration, if you want all users to fill it in. Though this is optional.

Hi,

You're the founder correct? If so, try this inside your CSS:
Code:
a[href="/u1"] {
background: url("http://i.imgur.com/v1q2kRk.gif") no-repeat;
padding-left: 19px;
padding-top: 2px;
display: none;
}

Code:
a[href="/u1"]:after {
background: url("http://i.imgur.com/v1q2kRk.gif") no-repeat;
padding-left: 19px;
padding-top: 2px;
content: 'UserName' !important;
}


Just replace, UserName with whatever you wish.

Note: Please don't remove the apostrophe.

Please don't use bold or color. Please keep to the default text. This is reserved for the staff for moderation.


Can you please use just the second code only? I want to see if I can remove the other username. Smile
