want to change name format in joomla users table

11 years 4 months ago #133792 by TNFL
Hello,

when I add or edit a user, the joomla core user table will be updatet to.

The 'name'-field in '#__users' get automatically the value "[firstname] [lastname]".
But I need this format for that field: "[lastname], [firstname]"

How can I realize that?
Do anyone has an advice for me?

Thanks in advance!

Use language strings to switch lastname / firstname titles.

You can't, it's not designed to be stored in such a way. Best approach is to use a Delimiter field created via Field Management and use substitutions to format the name display to your liking. Such as the following substitution.

[code:1]
[lastname], [firstname]
[/code:1]
