Changing default--new members real names hidden

edited January 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
When I approve new members, the box below is automatically checked BY DEFAULT. --> Check here to make your real name visible to other members. I have to uncheck this box for every member I approve. How do I change the default so that real names are NOT visible, unless the user explicitly chooses this?

    No one knows?

    There is probably a setting in the settings.php file. I am at work now so I can't check, but I will when I get home.

    Thanks Jim. I had a look at the settings.php file, and I didn't see anything. (I am not a developer, though, so I could have easily missed it.)

    There is a brief mention of Applicants here...

    if ($Context->Session->User->Permission('PERMISSION_APPROVE_APPLICANTS') && !$Configuration['ALLOW_IMMEDIATE_ACCESS']) { $UserManager = $Context->ObjectFactory->NewContextObject($Context, 'UserManager'); $ApplicantCount = $UserManager->GetApplicantCount(); $Panel->AddListItem($AdminOptions, $Context->GetDefinition('MembershipApplicants'), GetUrl ($Configuration, 'search.php', '', '', '', '', ' PostBackAction=Search&Type=Users&Keywords=roles:'. $Context->GetDefinition('Applicant').';sort:Date;'), $ApplicantCount.' '. $Context->GetDefinition('New'), '', 100); }

    But that's not it.

    I think I found what I need in appg/settings.php

    The line is:
    $Configuration['USE_REAL_NAMES'] = '1';

    EDIT: This doesn't work like I thought it would.

    When I add
    $Configuration['USE_REAL_NAMES'] = '0';

    to the conf/settings.php file, it removes the real names--even for the admin. Admin can no longer see real names. So, this isn't what I'm looking for. :-(
