    Hi there,

    In wp-admin > Users

    ‘Display name publicly as’ is automatically populated with the username:

    This isn’t helpful when Vendors are searching for fellow Vendors or Customers to send them a message (see post Allow Customers to Message Vendors Easily) as they won’t know the persons username when searching in the Community Page

    So, is it possible to force ‘Display name publicly as’ with the Users First and Second name like this:

    That would mean users would be able to search for each other by First or Second Name 🙂

    Thank you,



    This is a wordpress issue…
    I did find this:

    Although it has not been updated in a while, I think this is the same author who wrote Paid Memberships Pro.
