Issues with adding speakers badge

Reported by: dziudek's profile dziudek Owned by: iandunn's profile iandunn
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords:



After WordCamp Poland I've discovered some issues with adding speakers badges to the speakers profiles.

I'm unable to add speakers badge for the following peoples:

  • davoraltman
  • kel-dc

Additonally it is strange that kel-dc were speaker at WordCamp SF (it is mentioned in her activity) but there is no badge in her profile.

This one is caused by the username vs nicename issue, so it's probably good to have a separate ticket for it.

Those person's actual usernames are "davor.altman" (note the period in the middle) and "Kel DC" (note the capitalization and the space).

Right now, I believe the code expects usernames, not nicenames. That could be changed, but in the meantime, the username can be seen on their forum profile pages:

The name given to the right of their gravatar picture, in that header space, is their actual username.

@Otto42 - I've found a solution:

When I've set the username in the speaker profile then the bagde don't appear.


1) I have removed the username
2) Then I have saved the speakers profile
3) And then I have set the username instead of nicename - after saving it helped (but also replaced the username to nicename automatically)

So in fact it is a strange behaviour with workaround - it is not intuitive.
Please decide if this ticket should be still opened.

For me the issue is solved.
