    Hi Support team,

    I would need your support.
    First problem is Gwangi theme or BuddyPress let the new user to select existing Name which is visible in the Members directory, for example in my case I have 3 registered “Aniko” in my community. During the registration process the system does not warn the new user about the selected user name has already occupied by others. This common name for multiple user cause a serious issue for me because at the Message area during write new emails.
    In this case if anybody try to write a new message to “Aniko” all 3 Aniko will get the same message, which is a real big problem.
    In the Message area there is no auto-search funtion in the To textbox which could help the user to select the right “Aniko” between the three… or if this function is available how I can activate. I need a plugin of configuration recommendation for existing plugins which can help me to avoid allowing same name for multiple user or autolookup in all user names and showing all user which name is matching the typed one to select the correct one.

    Thanks and regards in advance.

    Unfortunately, we have no idea about how to force BuddyPress to correct this issue. 😔

    It’s best if you try to reach the plugin authors. They will be more informed and better suited to help you.
