I need to know how to display the last name next to the first name. It currently shows only the name.
Thank youJune 11, 2021 at 01:30 #32415
Thank you for reaching out to us. 🙂
Please note that this is standard behaviour with WordPress. To change that, please go to Dashboard > Users > All Users and edit the right profile. You’ll have to choose the right format at the Display name publicly as field from the drop down list. Then, click on Update User at the bottom of the page.
Please find the attached screenshot.

Hello, thanks for the answer. Although it is a WordPress behavior, I ask you (maybe you have the answer), since the solution you give me is to do it on already registered users, what do I have to do so that new users are shown with the name and surname of automatic way?
Thank you very muchJune 11, 2021 at 17:51 #32456
As this is standard behavior with BuddyPress and WordPress, changing this is considered customization work. Unfortunately, this is a service that we do not provide. We only share snippet only to solve issues with our theme. Any further request for CSS snippets will have to be part of a defect that needs to be fixed urgently. No snippets will be shared otherwise.
However, this article might catch your attention as it seems to answer to a related concern: How can i replace user’s ‘display name’ / ‘full name’ at dwqa section to his/her ‘username’ ?
Please note that this question has already been asked to BuddyPress team: Hide Username from buddypress. I suggest you to comment this topic to be notified when authors will answer.
If you want to go further with the customization of your website, we advise that you hire a freelancer to do it for you.
If you’re on a tight budget, we recommend you to require the services from Envato Studio freelancers (https://studio.envato.com/explore/websites-programming). This web platform gives you access to developers who have already experience with theme customizations, and for very competitive prices.
Thank you for your understanding.June 14, 2021 at 10:19 #32501
