    Most forums use a basic 3 bits of information identifying the user

    Username
    Real Name
    Password

    Other fields exist of course.

    My question, if you please, is it possible to display the full name with our without the Username on the post. I believe you should not be anonymous in postings, and usernames obfuscate identity.

    Thanks so much in advance

    Kind regards

    Neil

    Yes, you can do this.

    You'd set up a required field named whatever you want like so:
    http://i.imgur.com/N6UP86W.png (kept on Imgur since you don't have a validated account)
    Then, you would set its options to become required upon registry (as well as making it displayable on in poster blocks): http://i.imgur.com/l3LCaRK.png

    Finally, you would set your style's properties (section shown in breadcrumb; replace "FutureCraft" with your style's name) to show custom fields: http://i.imgur.com/ZtVsHSf.png

    I hope this helps you out :)
