#1568 closed enhancement (fixed)

Install should supply a nickname for the admin user

Description

The install process does not create a nickname for the admin user, which renders the greeting at the top right a little weird:

Howdy, . [Sign Out, My Account]

Attached is a patch that will define a display name for the admin user at install.

Could you have the nickname / display name created by the first part of the email address they enter?

#3 @markjaquith

Added a patch to do what Matt requested. I tested it by doing a WP install from scratch, and it works as expected.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

Bumping up for commit.

  • Keywords bg|commit removed

Taking down from commit... noticed a problem. Display Name is set, but Nickname is not. This gives error in profile.php when you try to save.

Okay, now display_name and user_nicename are both set to the before "@" part of the e-mail address. Bumping back up for commit.
