XF 1.1 Personal Details - Replace the user's 'post name' ?

Hello,

I am currently running a forums for my Minecraft Gaming Community, and I have a personal detail field which is "Minecraft Username" - How can I get this to 'replace' the username that appears when they post, or how can I make it appear below their username? (Or something, so that other players know who they are )

Thanks

When adding or editing a field there is this option you need to enable:

General Options: Viewable in message user info

In addition, make sure this is enabled in your style:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> Message Elements -> Show custom user fields

Now when a user enters a value into that field it will show in their posts.

This might help with the profile page:

Or for the member card:
