    Dear all,
    I had a look at the section in the manual but couldn't find the answer
    http://xenforo.com/help/users/

    One of my community users asks me how to change the displayed name, cause he had put the username and wishes to edit it.

    I feel dumb but I cannot find a quick way to do that on my own as well! :)
    What shall I reply to him? :)

    Thanks
    Marco

    It can only be done in the ACP by an administrator.

    Just edit the User Name field.

    mmm I've seen it.
    Is there a reason why a user cannot change his own name? Just curious.. :)

    Cheers

    Because it would be hard for me (the admin) to keep track of them !
    You don't want people changing their names very often.

    wow I think James this is pretty cool.

    However, I think this should be considered by xenForo as a future implementation, maybe one that I can enable or disable, so that Digital Doctor is happy with it :p

    What d'you say Brogan? :)
