    I’ve been looking around for a bit of time for a solution to a problem. I have Two different Member Types each with their own WordPress Role. I need one Member Type (Teachers) to have the Full Name (First and Last Names) displayed and the other (Students) the username or “nicename” displayed.

    I found a plugin, “Display Name Publicly As” that may do what I need at:

    I was hoping to find a simpler solution.

    Hi RES,
    Thank you for the question.

    It is a simple customization. you can do it with a couple of lines of code.

    I will rephrase your question and share the code.

    Here is the code that will show nice name for all users except the teacher(for them, let the full name work).

    
    
    /**
     * Filter Display Name.
     */
    add_filter( 'bp_core_get_user_displayname', function ( $name, $user_id ) {
    	if ( ! bp_has_member_type( $user_id, 'teacher' ) ) {
    		$name = bp_members_get_user_nicename( $user_id );
    	}
    
    	return $name;
    }, 10, 2 );
    
    /**
     * Filter Displayed User full name for BuddyPress.
     */
    add_filter( 'bp_displayed_user_fullname', function ( $name ) {
    	if ( ! bp_has_member_type( bp_displayed_user_id(), 'teacher' ) ) {
    		$name = bp_members_get_user_nicename( bp_displayed_user_id() );
    	}
    
    	return $name;
    } );
    
    

    You can put it in bp-custom.php in plugins directory or functions.php of your theme.

    Regards

    I appreciate your response very much. Unfortunately I tested it in both a BuddyPress and BuddyBoss setups (both multisite) and I could not get it to work. I tried various scenarios. I’m running WordPress version 5.4.2 and PHP version 7.4.4.

    I feel as though I’m already asking a lot but I have a request. I believe the code reads, “if not teacher, display nicename. I have different levels of teachers so I think it would work better if the code was “if student, full name”. I hope that’s clear.

    Thank you very, very much.

    Hi RES,
    No issues.

    can you please tell me where did you place the code ? is it in wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php?

    Thank you

    The code is in wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php. By the way, both sites are Multi-Network in addition to Multisite, on two separate installations on WordPress. And, both sites are the main site on their respective network.

    Again, thank you very much.

    Just checking if there is something else I can try to get the code to work. I now have a non-multisite setup and it still isn’t working for me. Thank you, I really appreciate your time. Please let me know how much you would charge for this.

    Hi,
    I am sorry for the delay.

    You will need assistance from BuddyBoss support. I am unable to find time to assist you with BuddyBoss and other other plguins.

    The above code is for BuddyPress.

    Regards
    Brajesh
