Real names not showing up in email notifications


(Tobias Eigen) #1

Real names are not showing up in email notifications. Instead it shows the username of the user who wrote the post. This seems to be a bug since elsewhere in discourse it displays the real name when that feature is turned on in admin.

Probably an oversight. I agree that if full name display is on, that should affect email notifications too.

I am not sure how I feel about this, but I don’t feel its a bug, more a feature request.

If we did this, do we also include title? We would need to be super careful with styling.

I would expect it to look “just like” it looks on the web site, or at least as much as possible, so people easily can identify the writer of the reply/topic.

Agreed, a shared function that renders out identically in the html email as it does on the site itself.
