Change full name in profile


(Leo Bergnéhr) #1

In the user profile it’s possible to edit the username and the email address. I can’t seem to find how, if possible, to edit the full name though. Is that possible, and if not, for what reasons?


Wish I could edit a user's full name from admin

Looking through the code, if the enable_names option (“Allow users to show their full names”) is enabled, that’s also supposed to allow users to edit their full names. I think I looked through all of the relevant code and didn’t notice a time constraint on how long you have to change your name.

I think that this might be a bug, given that on my own forums I can’t change my own name even though I am an admin. It’s possible that field is just never toggling as editable. /ccing @zogstrip for his input

Indeed, it’s a bug. Something might be wrong about this commit:
