Like mini2 replied, all is controlled by Usergroups. Just setup a promotion to a new usergroup that will control access to the username change.

I'm having this problem as well, don't know what caused it, was working fine for about a month.

I have my limit set to once per day and users cannot change their name. If I set it the limit to "0" then they can.

Did you implement that change?

Also, do you think it should work fine with ver. 3.5.3?

Thanks.

Does anyone know how this works with photopost_vbagallery?

Usuailly. if you change a name on there via the acp you have to run a maintanence script to update the gallery information.

IT will not change usernames automatic for external applications that store the username. But i don't see any problems if you would run that maintenance script.

Sounds like a bad integration to me, because it is really simple to create a plugin that acts on a username change.

Can this be implemented with a points system like ebux http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...d=1#post913069

That would be really good if they also had to pay points to change there username

Thanks

I was wondering where you run the maintanence script in VB or Photo post and where is it located and actually called. I have a few member names that I changed in VB that I need to update Photopost with ???

Thanks
