Facebook Registration & long names


(Juffin) #1

If person uses facebook authorization (registration) , he gets username in format of name_surname, if name is longer then X symbols it is displayed cut on the board and username looks unfinished and ugly.
there is a setting in admin panel to set minimum username length, should not be there something to allow maximum length of username?
or should not we add option to choose desired username after authorization via FB?

Remember there are two names for every user

  • username: short, unique, ASCII
  • name: long, can be duplicate, Unicode

If you want both names displayed tick that option in the admin settings.

The name should be set automatically to exactly what was provided with Facebook, no matter how long and Unicodey it is.
