    It is very common that, in an effort to protect privacy, an administrator will want users only to be displayed by usernames.
    In order to change SE4 default showing first and second names, do follow:

    1. Log into your admin panel and step into a "Profile Questions" page under the "Settings" tab.

    2. Delete the "First Name" and "Last Name" profile questions.

    3. Re-create both fields, ensuring the profile type is set to Single-line Text Input (NOT "First Name" and "Last Name"). If you don't want these field to be visible on the users profile, be sure to select "Hide on Member Profiles".

    4. If you already have existing users, you will need to run the following queries in your MySQL database to clear their display name:

    Code:
    UPDATE engine4_users SET displayname=username;

    Nice tip. I wish there was a plugin or tutorial that would do something similar, but allow the "alias" to be the display name. Using this method it will use the username/profile url name. I.E. - If someone can't put "The Great Pumpkin" as a name, it will show up as "Hi, thegreatpumpkin", etc.

    I would love to be able to have a username that was spaced/capitalized as needed and displayed throughout the site or a way to make a custom variable (profile question) that was used as a username/alias after doing the above modification.
