User Name Problem

8 years 5 months ago - 8 years 5 months ago #186725 by cxt
I have added Facebook Connect to my site [url=http://][/url], I like the idea of it, but have a issue. When a user first uses it and creates a account it makes the user name the persons name here is a example (first_lastname) I need the user to be able to make up their own user name, what I am looking for is on first login to be redirected to profile edit page and put in their unique user name. My site depends on user names not real name...

If they have a screen name setup for their Facebook account it'll use that otherwise it'll use first_last name. There's no changing this as it's hardcoded in nor is there anything else to be supplied except maybe Facebook ID as username if a screen name isn't present. You can set the registration redirect to profile edit, but they won't be able to change their username unless you allow username changes via CB > Configuration > User Profile.
