Are you doing display names on bbPress 0.9?

  • Greg


    One of the nice things about bbPress 1.0 is that it supports display names. This seems pretty important – you don’t want the names to look different in different parts of the site (I have bbPress integrated with BuddyPress 1.0). I guess one could limit the WPMU/BP side of things to usernames, but that seems like a step backwards.

    On the other hand, bbPress 0.9.0.x is very stable and reportedly quite a bit more efficient, so I’d like to stick with it until 1.0 gets there (we have a few thousand users).

    Have you found a way to do display names using 0.9.0.x? I see mention of a plugin, but I can’t find it in the extend section.

    Hi reboot. I saw a thread somewhere about this, and mention of a plugin for 1.0 which turns OFF display names. From what I remember, they can be used to spoof Admin, etc. Can’t find it now, but I think the plugin was called disable-display-name. Might be worth a look.



    Thanks Michael. Via that plugin I found this one:

    Don’t know why it didn’t come up in my original search. It’s a bit dated, but perhaps it will do the trick.

    Display names won’t be added to the 0.9 branch.
