Question Emails as usernames

Emails as usernames was created by lmcclain
I have my settings set to NOT display emails for my forum users. However, some of the registered users have an email as their username which displays at bottom where online members show.

Any way to get emails not to display? Have users re register?

Thanks!

When the username is an email address it will handlet as username and be displayed in the user list.
Edit the register form and add in your User - Terms and Conditions, it's outright forbidden to use email addresses as username.

Any way to get emails not to display?

I see no way unless you blend out the complete online statistic.

Have users re register?

I don't know your Joomla configuration. If you allow to change the username, you can change the username without re-registering.

Rich,

This is incredibly helpful. Thank you. Yes we do allow username changes. However every time our users try to change their usernames it saves without actually making the change.

I can go in make the change but they cannot when the setting should make it available for them.

Thoughts?

You must enable this in the Joomla user setting (Users -> Manage -> Options).
