#28182 closed enhancement (fixed)

Profile edit - display name more prominently

Reported by: seanchayes's profile seanchayes Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.8 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.9
Component: Users Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


When adding / editing many users or viewing many profiles I find that sometimes the name of the user profile being edited, or to be more precise the Display Name, could be more prominent on the screen.

I have submitted a patch that, on a users profile screen, retrieves the display name and places it up in the title area of the page.

However, this patch still displays the standard word "Profile" when the current user is editing their own profile - this behavior is not changed.

Possibly related #12295 - as there appears to be more profile page edits planned that this could be rolled into.

Would be cool to get a screenshot. Not sure the method in your patch would work out with translations.

#3 @seanchayes

I've added example screenshots showing the functionality I described.

The "Edit User" or "Profile" text is already processed for translation earlier in the file - I hope that's enough.

I've also refreshed the patch (28182.2.diff) and re-attached with some minor ui positioning and sizing (in css) of the "Add New" button on smaller device displays. With longer names the button clashed ever so slightly so I made changes to position it better so it would work for shorter name lengths as well. And I attach a screenshot pre (3a) and post (3b) adjustment.
