Title: User Name
Post by Cary on Today at 20:53
Can I ask why both the user name and the alias appear under the profile? Makes one of them a little redundant doesn't it? I wouldn't usually expect my 'user name' to be visible if there was an option of an alias. Can I change my user name to match my alias? (I know I can change my alias but that isn't what I want to do!)

Hmmm, does seem a little odd. Does this fix it for you? (see profile) -- Steve

[I see username still appears in the link, but not much we can do about that as it's what YaBB uses throughout to identify you. I guess I could modify your username on the server, but at the risk of losing the attribution link to existing messages. Same risk were you to reregister under another name -- SJB]

Works for me Steve - thanks. And all done with such speed.

[And I don't think anyone would notice it in the link - unless of course they'd read our postscripts!! So I'd better not mention it also appears in the instant message system! ]

Rats! Missed that. Try this!
Well, I see that fixes it in the Inbox and Outbox indexes, but afraid it's still got to be "To username" when you compose a message...

I can live with that!! Now, what else needs fixing? Ah yes - how are you on garden gates - mine's dropped off its hinges.

As someone who has been through your garden gate....

....can I just say how sorry I am to hear about that?

How will you keep the cats in (Mrs Slokeham?)
