    I was actually trying to make users sign up with username instead of full names and i went to phrases and tried to change it as discussed in the forum but it seems its not working.

    I edited the fields by going through ( ACP -> Appearance -> Search Phrases) for "your_name" and "your_name_or_email_address". I changed both to "your_username" and "your_username_or_email_address".

    After doing that i saved and i have the new phrases in red but the old phrases i saved on are still there.

    Now i still have the "name" and the "your name or email address" still showing when new users are trying to register.

    What do i do?

    Don't change the phrase title. Change the content.

    Thanks Mike. I am very grateful. I have worked all day trying to do this and the support could not help me. I was actually changing both title and content.

    That's not strictly true, is it?

    I told you in your ticket yesterday you had to edit the phrase text.

    Well you did not make it clear enough. I was changing the phrase title and the content and i spent hours just doing this. I expected you to have told me to change only the content and not the phrase. Well its solved anyways. Thanks.
