Sounds like a bad integration to me, because it is really simple to create a plugin that acts on a username change.
Someone else had asked a question of how we could run that maintenance script.. can you assist? I have a couple of mods that don't update the names, mainly VB Journal and VB Gallery. I'm sure there's plenty of other mods where the usernames aren't being updated too.. thanks.

I tried to install this on a 3.5.4 board, and I got "action cancelled" errors in the admincp main window, whenever I wanted to edit a template.

I really really want this hack for 3.5.4

Edit: looking back a page, you say it works fine with 3.5.4... I'll make a test board and try again.

Edit edit:

Ok this is very strange indeed. I installed a new board - tested to see that editing templates worked - then just uploaded the FILES of this hack. Being overly cautious, i then checked again, and lo and behold; the errors were there again when I tried to edit a template. I hadn't even changed any files or overwritten anything.

Yet more strange: I deleted those files and the problem remained.

will this work with 3.5.4?

I have followed the install instructions, but I think there is a problem with .php files now being .htm files...would rebuilding the bitfields AFTER updating the templates effect it?

I installed in 3.6 beta 4 without any problem.

There's only one minor issue which I'm sure applies to any version it's installed in; hover on username to view history doesn't work in Opera.

Marco:

Do you think you could write this so if a member changes their username the original username can't be used by someone else until a certain time frame went by?

For example. Let's say I have a member by the name of William Fawkes and he decides he wanta to change his username to Bill Jones. Some else comes along and chooses William Fawkes for his username. I would like it so if someone else has used the username before someone else wouldn't be allowed to unless the original member said it was ok to give it up or a certain time frame had gone by.

love this hack, but can someone help me out here. I set things up so moderators have permissions to change other's usernames.....but when I go into the modcp there is nothing listed. I'm sure I just have to edit the /modcp/index.php file and point it to the mh_unm_modusername.php, but I'm just not 100% sure how to do that. Basically I'm just looking for a solution to fix it so mods can do more then just "view profile". I want them to be able to edit them as well incase they need to change names, etc....
