Change Username to Full Name in user registration and profile
« on: January 03, 2011, 06:40:13 am »

Hey guys,

I am working on a private family gallery and would like to be able to require people to give their full name to join as well as sort pictures by their full name.  Is there a way to change the Username field to display Full Name in the user registration and profile page while leaving it as username in the script?  Also how would I go about allowing spaces in the username field?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Have a look at the file lang/english.php (or whatever language file you use). Here you can change almost every wording.

Adding spaces to the user name works for me out of the box.

Thank you so much.  That worked perfectly.  It has been a very long time since I have tried running a web site.  HTML was all there was at the time and JAVA was just coming out so all this php and mysql is entirely new.
