Force First and Last Name as Display Name


The display name dropdown is hidden from users. Instead, it is always set to their first and last name, or username if those fields are empty.

Display names are updated at registration or when a user profile is updated. To update existing users, visit Settings —> Force First Last and click on the link to run an initial update on your users.


Download, Install and Activate!

  1. Upload force-first-last to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Visit Settings —> Force First Last to run an initial update of all of your users.

Thank you for this simple and effective solution. It is something that should be part of WordPress by default. Cheers
