What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.8.x version of this hack, designed to work with vBulletin v4.0.x.

A very simple hack to display your real name in your profile and postbit (or postbit legacy), just like here at vBulletin.org.

If no real name is entered, then it will not display in the postbit (or postbit legacy).

DEMO: View it in action here.

This hack was created because of a request by Hannan here.


Limitation with this hack

People keep asking for usergroup permissions for this hack.

While this would easy to implement, what people fail to realise is that User Profile Fields are not controlled by usergroup permissions at all, and even if usergroup permissions were added to this hack, the User Profile Fields would still be viewable by members even if they do not have permissions to use them.

User Profile Fields are either viewable by all or viewable by none, this is how they were implemented in vBulletin by design, there is no in between with User Profile Fields.

So, I will not be adding usergroup permissions to this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.2.0.

For the v3.8.x version of this hack, which will also work with v3.7.x and v3.6.x - check here.



Hack Support/Feature Requests

IMPORTANT: This hack is no longer supported.



Install/Uninstall Instructions

This looks great. I was wondering myself why there is no real name support in vbulletin and now asking google, I came around on this mod.

But, does this Mod support the your new fields for real name in the registration process?

If not, is it possible to extend it by another plugin?
I will import multiple User automatically and also set their real names beside the user name.

Maybe you can give me a little advice, how to update the fields for the realname through API.

Many thanks and greetings Bundschuh.


Edit: Ok, I recognized that this plugin does not delivers the real name fields in the postbits of mobile API responses.

You can not with this hack, there are no template hooks just below the Join Date.

NOTE: The below is unsupported

But, you could always find this line in the postbit template:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and move it below this line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I got it yesterday. I didn't realize we had to create a field for it.

I misunderstood the modification. You can create a Real Name profile field without this modification. This modification just makes it appear on the user info. area of the postbit.

The reason I ask is that I'd like to do something like this. Your mod is the closest thing I've seen and it almost works, but it really needs multiple fields to pull it off I think?

Can it be done, or do I need to look elsewhere?

Thanks very much in advance
I am wondering the same thing. I am having a problem with people only inputting their first name. I would like to create a second required field for their last name and have both fields displayed next to "real name" in the postbit. Please advise.

In the AdminCP, go to User Profile Fields -> User Profile Field Manager-> edit Real Name

Click the radio button that says yes to "Show on Members List"
