Making WordPress.org

#5130 closed enhancement (fixed)

Show exact username in user profile

In order to use SVN (and perhaps some other services under .org) the user must use correct capitalization of their username. To my knowledge, there's currently no easy way for a plugin/theme developer or GTE (translation editor for a language, they sometimes need to access i18n.svn.wordpress.org) to check this, except asking someone with back-end access to look this up.

I suggest that this information should be made visible under profiles.wordpress.org, at least when a logged-in user visits their own profile.

It's on your forum profile editing screen, in a box that you cannot edit:

For example:


#2 @Otto42
20 months ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

It is also on the profiles editing screen, however it was displaying the nicename, until now.


Fixed in #dotorg:15888.
