In some cases, displaying the username, that is part of the security credentials of the user, is considered a security risk, but JForum does not have another field like "Descripcion, Full name,...." to be shown instead.
Wouldn't it be nice to have an extra field so you can display THAT information in the forum topics & messages, instead of displaying the username of the authors of the topics/messages?
It ocurred to me as we would like NOT to display the username of our forum users, given that it is shared with other applications and in fact it is not representative of the user's identity (it can be a encoded string that actually tells nothing about the name of the user).
What do you think? [originally posted on jforum.net by GreenEyed]
I'm attempting to implement the extra field for the Real/Nick name in my jforum. Can someone point to me the essential java files (those inside DAO folder?) that I need to modify to set and get the string data from this extra field? I'm using Ver2.15. Thanks!

Thanks Rafael! Got my new field inserted! My next question is which HTML (almost all of them I think) & java files I need to modify to display the new Real/Nick name in place of the user name displayed inside the forum?
