  • Display Name

    Perhaps this is a silly expectation, but I just spent some time trying to figure out how configure a "display name" that's different from my "user name". Eventually I realized that pretty, two-word names were people's user name, so I created another account. I know I've seen display names in other vBulletin-based forums.

    Display vs Login

    I've looked around a bit and haven't found any information on how to enable a Display name without hacking vBulletin. I found a few forums that had complaints about how when they would upgrade to vBulletin, they would lose their ability to have separate display names and login names.

    I will look around a bit more for information. If there are any issues similar to this, feel free to open additional threads to discuss them.

      As far as i know, that's not possible in vBulletin. What I usually do - when using a short nick - is just put my real name in my signature.
