Blank display_name on WP 2.5 integration

  • bradsucks


    I have WP 2.5 and bbPress working together. But when a user creates a new account via bbPress, the display_name column in wp_users is blank.

    When logged-in users post a comment on my blog, they’re marked as “Anonymous”. Anyone know how to fix this?

    I can copy the user_login data over to display_name manually, but I’d like it to populate display_name automatically when the record s created.

    I am experiencing the same problem as well.

    I think it has something to do with user roles, as a registered BBpress user does not have get a defined role in WordPress (i.e author, contributor, editor etc…).

    It would be easier if a default wordpress role was automatically assigned to a user that registers via bbpress.

    If anyone has any ideas/solutions it would be much appreciated.

    We will probably start using some form of display name in bbPress in the next version.

    There is already a built-in way to map user roles between WordPress and bbPress within the admin area under WordPress Integration.
