    In the forums on our site, it constantly uses the user's email address in forum posts and replys. Is there a way to remove this and have it user the first and last name from the Profile?

    Hello Armysniper,

    By default we are using user's username and as I see it you are using the email as an user name. Unfortunately there is no way to override this behavior.

    Can I ask that this be added as a feature request in the future? Alot of professional sites dont use Username as people forget what Username they use on a site but they remember their email address. Having first name and last name is used in other parts of the forum anyways, so it would be more consistent.

    Hi Armysniper,

    We have logged this as a task. The module will be rewritten for 4.0 so we will fix a lot of problems with it.
