On two separate Discourse instances — one that I admin — I’ve not been able to get my full name “Lou Quillio” to display. It does, however, display here on meta.
I flipped a lotta bits trying to figure out why.
prioritize_username_in_ ux, etc. How these are set (and whether a profile even has a full name) doesn’t always behave as I’d expect, but there’s still some edge case with my particular name.
The full name on my profile displays on posts if I change it to
- Lou Q
- Lou Quill
- Lou Quilli
- Lou Quillio?
But in my Discourse instances, when I add that final “o” with nothing after it, my full name vanishes from posts. Makes no sense. Gotta be a bug.
Added: Could it be because my collapsed, lower-cased full name matches my username, as “Tom Jones” matches
