Nicename/Display Name Format

This Article Applies to
OTHER Articles Available

This setting provides the ability to map ActiveCampaign fields to your member’s “Nicename” or “Displayname” setting, which controls what name is displayed to other users.

This can be done in a flexible manner with no programming required.  If you have a more complex need that is not met by this function, we do provide WordPress filters to allow you to customize the Nicename using your own custom PHP code. In most cases though, this is not necessary.

You can enter a mix of text and contact field placeholders into the input area, and the combined result will be assigned to the user at login.

Any contact field that you are syncing can be used in the member’s Nicename.

If this field is left blank, no changes to the displayname are made during login.

Examples

{{contact.FIRSTNAME}}

This would set the displayname to be just the contact’s first name.

{{contact.TITLE}} {{contact.LASTNAME}}

This would combined the custom field “Title”, with the member’s last name.

Darth {{contact.NICKNAME}}

This would add the phrase “Darth” before the member’s nickname. This is a less popular choice, but we have fun with it 🙂

Contact Placeholders

Only contact fields are supported. Placeholders consist of the pattern {{contact.FIELDNAME}}.

The placeholders are not case sensitive.

Security Concerns

There is nothing stopping a malicious user from using names such as “Site Owner”, or inappropriate or obscene words in their username.

Nestable Shortcodes

First_matryoshka_museum_doll_openWhen working with conditional shortcodes it’s often useful to have a series of tests, one after another, where each test determines if the user is qualified to continue to the next test.

Due to a limitation in WordPress’s design, the built-in shortcode system is very fast but it does not know how to count levels of nesting, so it cannot match each opening tag with its correct closing tag. In order to cleanly support this feature while not sacrificing performance, we provide the ability to nest shortcodes by giving each nested group of shortcodes a unique name by adding a number to the end. You can think of this like a Russian Matryoshka doll.
