    I want to remove registration username and replace with the full name instead. How can username field be auto-populated with the users “name” field, so that user does not need to fill out a username, and only needs to provide a “name”?

    Hi @abourne,

    Thank you for bring this issue to our attention. Maybe these topics will help you to solve your issue as they seem to answer your concern:

    change username to display name


    https://buddypress.org/support/topic/default-to-display-name-publicly-as-username/

    These plugins might also help you to change the display of BuddyPress member names:

    Force First and Last Name as Display Name

    BP Display Name

    However, please bear in mind that these plugins are not yet supported by Gwangi. You might need to add extra CSS code to make them perfectly work with your theme.

    Furthermore, please note that this issue is related with the customization of BuddyPress, not with the use of Gwangi. As theme authors, the installation, setting or debugging of third party plugins isn’t part of the support we will provide for our theme (Gwangi) and our plugins (Grimlock suite).

    To go further, we invite you to ask for more help from the plugin authors and post your request on their support forums:
    https://buddypress.org/support/

    We remain available for all support requests related with the use of your theme.

    Regards,

    Thanks. Tried both plugins but do not work. First one is completely broken. Second causes error messages.

    Will resort to using usernames… even though it makes no sense for our directory purpose.

    Hi @abourne,

    Before totally giving up on this feature, maybe ask for more help from the BuddyPress authors and post your request on their support forums:
    https://buddypress.org/support/

    They might find a solution to help with this issue.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will do.

    If not completely removing the username, can the Name and Last Name fields be displayed on member tiles instead of using the username, or if not instead of, in addition too, so username is displayed underneath perhaps?
