_users Name Field Generation

_users Name Field Generation was created by flyingeagle855
CB Settings:
Name Style = First and Last Name Field
Name Format Name (username)

What I am looking for is to make the Name part be First Name Last inital. My understanding is that CB takes the CB first and Last name field to create the name in _users table. This name field is then used to display the real name around the site.

So I guess I am looking for the code that generates the data for the Name field. I think this makes sense :blink:

We don't support core edits, best approach is to use CB triggers within a new CB plugin to alter the display of the name field. Otherwise you'll need to edit the field in cb.core.php (can't help you much more then that, sorry). I recommend reviewing tutorials within my signature for trigger usage information.
