    Hi,
    Is there any way I can change the Login Widget to prevent users from being able to change their screen name once it has been set?
    I am trying to prevent users from hiding behind Aliases.

    WP 3.8.1
    bbPress 2.5.3
    Many thanks in advance

    you can edit the profile page to prevent them changing it

    In your theme create a bbpress folder

    wp-content/themes/%yourtheme%/bbpress

    where %yourtheme% is the name of your theme

    then navigate to

    wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/form-user-edit.php

    and copy this file to the bbpress folder you created above

    bbpress will now use this one instead of the default.

    edit this new file and take out lines 33 to 45

    ie take out the following

    <div>
    			<label for="nickname"><?php _e( 'Nickname', 'bbpress' ); ?></label>
    			<input type="text" name="nickname" id="nickname" value="<?php bbp_displayed_user_field( 'nickname', 'edit' ); ?>" class="regular-text" tabindex="<?php bbp_tab_index(); ?>" />
    		</div>
    		<div>
    			<label for="display_name"><?php _e( 'Display Name', 'bbpress' ) ?></label>
    			<?php bbp_edit_user_display_name(); ?>
    		</div>
    		<?php do_action( 'bbp_user_edit_after_name' ); ?>
    

    This will remove the ability to set a nickname and to change the display name.
