Full name precedes username on mobile even though it shouldn't

(rizka) #1

After upgrading to Discourse 2.1, the mobile view has a very disturbing issue. The full name is shown above username which is not desirable. On desktop view things are like they’ve always been: username is shown first and after it there is the full name.

The username is “gatecrasher” and “viuhkalätkää” is the full name. In fact, “Viuhkalätkää” is a kind of signature line and it should not be emphasized like it is on mobile.



This behaviour is supposed to be controlled by the site setting “prioritize username in ux” which is ON on our site. It seems to affect desktop only, however. Is this a bug or a new feature which I don’t understand?

Discourse 2.1 released!

What do you think @sam as this was a setting you added as I recall?

I fixed this per:

I also removed some staff notes code that did not belong in core anymore.

I also corrected our CSS so we properly allow decoration of line 1 in the flex (order 2 is now rendered after username/name)

Thank you! Any chance of backporting this fix into stable branch? This is really bothering our users. (If not, we may find some solutions with CSS.)

The fix is CSS only so you can apply it yourself with a theme component

Yeah I see, I should have visited Github first.
