Hi malschauen,

I'm a newby too :blush: and I got exactly the same problem on . Did you ever solve your problem or does anyone know how to sort this out?

Thanks in advance,

OK I found the solution: The problem came from the Name Style field in the General tab of the com_profiler Configuration file. The error occurs when the field is set to "First and Last Name field"; I reverted to "Single Name Field" and now it works...

I would prefer to capture First name and Last name separately so that users are greeted with a "Hi [First Name] rather than a "Hi [Name]" so if anyone knows how to work this out, I'd still be happy to hear the solution:P

CB login module has a "Hi firstname" choice. Check CB login module params in backend.

Hi Beat,

Thank you for your post. I found the Hi firstname choice, but here's the crunch:
1) to be able to use it I need to set the Name style field in the Configuration file to "First and Last name field", right?
2) But then if I do this, new users cannot register because even though they fill their first name and surname in the registration page, they get an error message saying "Please enter your name" and registration does not proceed... And the only way I found to get rid of this error is to set the Name style field back to "Name" but then, I have to greet users with Hi [Name]... :blink: :cheer:
