Vanilla 2.6 is here
! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2
with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.
Please upgrade to 2.3 here.
The 2.2 and earlier branches are no longer being updated.
Show a display name instead of username
I'd like for users and their posts to be labeled with a display name (e.g. "Jon Smith") that's separate from the username they use to login (which is how our SSO works). I've searched around a bit, as I could've sworn I saw someone else ask as similar question, but I couldn't find anything, so I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas as to how best to go about doing this.
I'll be delving into myself in a couple days, but first I wanted to see what the community had to say. Also I'd really like to keep it confined to a plugin and thereby avoid modifying any of the core files, but I'm new to Vanilla development and am not sure if that will be possible for this particular feature.
