The normal user editor contains a limited dropdown list to select “Display name publicly as” which my theme uses to display the author name as a link to posts using < ?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>. How do we replicate that using frontend-pro? Just create a field called “Display name publicly as” and let the user pick anything they want?
Seems like a lot of code. The Theme My Login registration page had this functionality without adding anything to my functions.php. Of course, can't do avatars with the theme my login page, so I guess I'm stuck.
What this doesn't allow, however, is the selection of the display name during registration. The field is blank. Users must come back after registration to select this. Any way around that?
That one was for existing users only, so it' won't work in user registration. One thing you could do, if not registered yet (not loggedin), you could show a text input to provide their desired display name. That should work.
