SMF Bridge - username vs. Display name
« on: March 04, 2006, 01:57:10 am »

Hi !

On SMF (and I guess any other BBS available..) any member have an internal username, and a Display Name.
The corrent bridge show the user's username (on the menu, on his comments, etc). is it possible to change that so it'll use his DisplayName instead ?

thanks..

Not easily. You'd need to look through bridge/smf10.inc.php and udb_base.inc.php and modify the code to accomplish this.

1. take \bridges\smf10.inc.php

2. search "memberName" (2 x)

3. replace with "realName"

that's all

I know this is an old topic, but it was something I was also having a problem with.  Herby007, I tried your method above, and although it seems to have changed the user name to the display name (Dave), it seems to have left the old user name (Skellum) in the file info, and below the thumbs.  see pics attached.

Nibbler, is this a result of not editing the udb_base.inc.php file you mentioned?  Or is there something else I need to do please?
