Profile editing nickname as username

    Hello,

    Is there any function or something for the nickname field to take data from username field and possible to save the profile? I’ve tried everything but I can’t do it.
    I don’t want users to be able to change their name at all times, but only administrators will be able to change it through the dashboard.

    I am editing bbpress form-user-edit.php in my child-theme. But still got only ERROR: Please enter a nickname.

    		<div>
    			<label for="first_name"><?php esc_html_e( 'First Name', 'bbpress' ) ?></label>
    			<input type="text" name="first_name" id="first_name" value="<?php bbp_displayed_user_field( 'first_name', 'edit' ); ?>" class="regular-text" />
    		</div>
    
    		<div>
    			<label for="last_name"><?php esc_html_e( 'Last Name', 'bbpress' ) ?></label>
    			<input type="text" name="last_name" id="last_name" value="<?php bbp_displayed_user_field( 'last_name', 'edit' ); ?>" class="regular-text" />
    		</div>
    
    		<div>
    			<input type="hidden" name="nickname" id="nickname" value="<?php echo esc_attr( $profileuser->user_login ); ?>" disabled="disabled" class="regular-text" />
    		</div>

    Thank you.
