    Just pointing out a tiny, tiny issue...

    I noticed that the names of the last poster in the forum listings page is not using the current nickname of the user's profile. I happened to change mind recently from my full name to just my first name, and I keep noticing that my full name still appears as the latest poster on the forum listings page, although it is correct within the actual forum post. I'm not sure if it is displaying first name + last name or the original nickname setup in the profile.

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Hello Gary,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We have tried to reproduce this with our last stable build that will be released as a hotfix in several days. We are not sure what your current version is, so we could not test this locally. Could you elaborate which is your exact Sitefinity version and any further instructions for reproducing the issue?

    Sincerely yours,
    Georgi

    Sorry for not being clearer. I was actually referring to the forums hosted at www.sitefinity.com. Compare the Last Post column on the following two pages as an example:

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for the additional information. We see what you are talking about now. This is by design. Your first and last name is shown in the Forums list and your nickname is shown in the list of Threads.

    All the best,
    Rebecca

    Hi Rebecca,

    Ahh... the dreaded "by design" answer ;)

    Hopefully, you folks can take a fresh look at this at some point, and consider a design change. I don't see any value added by the current approach, but I do see some shortcomings. I think that many people would consider that their first name and last name should remain private within the profile and the supplied nick name be used instead for any personal references that are publicly visible.

    Thanks for your response.

    Regards,
    Gary
