    Hi Brajesh,

    I’ve started migrating users properly and new users will start registering on the site soon.

    Here is my register page:

    https://technicskeyboard.com/register/

    Months ago I edited “Ground” to be called “My Community Name” and added the text to explain. However, I don’t really want it there. Is it mandatory for the member to complete it on Registration? Can I hide it somehow?

    I will probably want some fields on there relating to the keyboard models but I don’t want to confuse the new users with their ‘Community Name’. I wish all these nice names, uernames, logins, ‘various names’ were all one thing in WordPress. If it confuses me I’m sure it is going to confuse all my members 🙂

    I’m sorry about this, when I started with Buddypress I did a lot of research about it (because it was annoying me) and I read posts where you and other people helped on the Buddypress forums… and I have forgotten everything I read 🙂

    Many thanks,
    Mike

    Hi Mike,
    Thank you for the question.

    BuddyPress needs the display name.

    There is a solution to this though.

    Here is a tutorial that will help you with it.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thank you for the help and the great article. I implemented it on my site a couple of days ago and it is working really well.

    I’m looking forward to part 2, did you write part 2? lol.

    Please leave this thread open I will discuss xprofile fields on registration here with you.

    For now, do you know how to temporarily remove the second column (Profile Details) on this page?

    Thanks again,

    Hi Mike,
    Thank you.

    You can use the following css to hide the 2nd column.

    
    #profile-details-section {
      display:none;
    }
    
    

    I could not complete the second part of the article. Will find some time and do it in near future.

    Regards
    Brajesh
