Full Name Required UI Confusion when Accepting Invites

When users get invited to a community via Invite Link, their signup form has a red asterisk next to the Name field even if the full name is optional based on site settings. The helper text shows “your full name (optional)” but the bold label above shows a red asterisk which normally denotes required.

I would expect that the name field only has the red asterisk next to it if the full_name_required Site Setting is set enabled.

but what I see is this.

Sign up via Accept Invitation Link

the backend seems to respect the setting as I can sign up and leave it blank with no issues, so seems to be only a front-end issue… there is a
<span class="required">*</span> present

Sign up from Home Page
For the same site though if you Sign up off of the home page, then you don’t get the red asterisk and it says optional, like I would expect to see everywhere.

Version: 2.7.0beta7
OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
Also this community has login_required Site Setting enabled, not sure if that is related.


This is fixed in #12916.
