towhid hi currently, when a guest submits a form on my site, if they are not a user then wp frontend user registers them as a user - wonderful. At the moment the field 'name' on the form goes into display name in the user profile and the new 'user name' that the plugin creates, goes into Nickname How can I change the plugin files so that the 'Name' field that the user creates goes into Nickname in their profile - as opposed to their user name? Id also like to use the full email address as their user name too? Can anyone help?

Ive managed to put their full name into nickname with wp_update_user( array(‘ID’ => $user_id, ‘nickname’ => $guest_name) );

But I cant work out how to use the full email address as username?

Currently when I log a new user my email address gets transformed to a user name of marc23 or some other random number. Even though my user doesnt exist as an active user.

Hello Marc,

To use email as username please follow this steps:

Step 1: Please navigate to plugins/wp-user-frontend/class/render-form.php

Step 2: Find
$username = sanitize_user( substr( $email, 0, strpos( $email, '@' ) ) );

Step 3: Replace the following line over the previous line.
$username = $email;
