    MORE probably would be better.

    While it was a user setting in vbulletin, it might be better--if possible--to at least jump it to 30 (as it was under Huddler).

    Hi there,
    Q: I can't seem to find where I can change my display name (it's currently my email address). I found the 'History of Display name changes' button but nowhere can I locate where one actually changes it (probably staring me in the face).

    Cheers

    Go to your profile page/Edit My Profile. In the left-hand column you'll see "Display name."

    Please be sure--if you use a nickname--to include a "Real Name." This can be added by clicking "Profile Settings" at the top of the left-hand column and entering it under "Profile Information" at the bottom of that page.

    Thanks.

    Okay. I do that, I get taken to 'General Account Settings', but there's no 'Edit My Display name' option anywhere on that page as far as I can see.

    Paul:

    "General Account Settings" is correct.

    Don't you see "Display Name" in the column on the far left-hand side of the page?

    I don't see that, either. But I did in the past. It might have been during our brief trial period, or just after, but I clearly remember changing mine myself.

    Hmmmm. Most be only I can see it with Moderator permissions.

    Tell ya what, Paul. Send me a PM with the name you'd like displayed and I'll see about changing your name myself. I would have done that from the beginning...but I thought it was something members could do themselves.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I can't seem to get "Find By Date" in the Search options to work. Whenever the calendar comes up, I choose a date and hit OK, but then the search form remains blank. Am I leaving something out?

    Is it possible to edit a Topic Name for a Topic that I created? I really want to correct a Misspelling on one of my created Topics, but I haven't been able to figure out how!

    Any information on how to do this would be greatly appreciated!

    CHEERS!

    don't think so. Just report a post and ask them to do it.

    That's great, except it states that this method is to be used only for reporting objectionable content, and not for other communications with Moderators! Is there any alternative way of reporting a Topic for the purpose of Corrections?

    Only Mods can rewrite topic headers. I have access in hardware only.

    Just send a moderator a private PM, scroll your mouse onto a users name and you will see send message, use that.

    Feel free to send it my way, Tony via PM.

    A link to the thread would be a help.
