Not a Bug Changing Username/Login when registered through Facebook

    Hi Guys,

    Just thought I'd first of all say that XF looks awesome, I was about to purchase vB but a friend pointed me in this direction and I think I'm converted!

    Anyway, I was eager when I signed up and seen the login with facebook option and decided to try it out. And now looking back at it, I wish my username wasn't my full name for privacy reason if I'm honest.

    Can this be changed, is it a problem that I signed up with FB? I did a search but couldnt find much, but I can't find an option for me to change it myself or is it simply an Admin only job?

    Just a little concerned as I could see this being a problem on my own future install.

    User names can only be changed by an administrator in the ACP.

    You have the option of choosing a user name when you initially log in/sign up with Facebook.

    You can try a demo here: http://xenforo.com/demo

    if you want your user name here on XenForo.com changed, please use the Contact Us form: Contact Us

    Thanks Brogan,

    Maybe it was just in my haste I missed the username when I clicked Sign up with Facebook.

    Though I can't see the Sign up with Facebook on the demo? Maybe it is because I already have associated my FB with another XF account?

    Thanks for the quick response.

    You actually need a Facebook app to be able to sign up so it would need to be configured.
    See here: http://xenforo.com/help/facebook/

    Having said that, it may be disabled/not possible on the demo.
    I haven't actually tried that personally.
