#1972 closed defect (fixed)

Custom titles should not replace a users forum role on user profiles

Reported by: netweb Owned by: coffee2code
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords: needs-patch


Rather than replace the users forum role, the forum role should remain and a custom title field be added to the profile, maybe the field should be simply titled "Title: " rather than "Custom Title:"

e.g: https://wordpress.org/support/users/sergeybiryukov

In meta-1972.patch a new profile field Title: is added to user profiles displaying users custom titles if they have had a custom title added to their account.

In meta-1972.2.patch this removes the overriding of users forum roles with their custom title introduced in r3880 and r3884, meta-1972.patch adds user titles as a new profile field on user profile pages.

In 4147:

Forums Theme: Display custom title, if defined, in user forum replies.

After [4144], the display of a user's forum role is no longer overridden by a custom title, so the display of the custom title must be reintroduced.
