Hi there – I purchased this excellent plug-in to satisfy a very particular set of requirements, and this far it's dealt with almost all of them. So thanks for that!
I still have a couple of specific issues to settle, however. This is the first, so I'm afraid I'll be back:
I'm setting up a site to enable guest users to post and upload an image, and some details. The admin receives notification of the posting, and the guest doesn't, although they'll be registered automatically as users. This is all working very well so far.
However, the system generates an automatic username for the guest poster (as mentioned here) when they are registered automatically – this seems to be the part of the email address before the ‘@' (so email@example.com will be registered with the username ‘Jim'). I have a custom field in my form with the Meta Key ‘first_name', and I'd like them to be registered with this (the value of the ‘first_name' custom field) as the user name instead. How can this be achieved?
I have a couple more questions relating to this, custom fields, email and meta keys in general – but I'll keep scouring the forums for answers to those while you're considering this one!
Thanks for your help
PS I wish I could edit the unrepresentative title of this post, which slipped over from elsewhere. It should read ‘Automatic Registration Username derived from Custom Field'!
Great – looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Being able to use the ‘name' field to generate the automatic account username (rather than the portion of the email address before the @) would be a big help.
