Display Name for WP and SP won't sync

Hi,

I have a case:

1. User registers.

2. User changes the profile name through the SP's profile page.

3. User posts on the forum, notice that the display name successfully changed.

4. User posts a comment on the WordPress comment, notices that the display name did not changed successfully.

 

So basically the display name for WP and SP won't sync when user changes the display name through the SP's profile page.

 

How do I fix this?

 

Thank you!

has the user turned on the option to sync display names in their SP profile?

Yes, and that option is on by default I believe.

My guess is that the sync process between WP and SP isn't doing it correctly. With my testing account I tried to change and update the settings but had the same problem.

Could it be something from the WordPress side? Or perhaps file permission thing?

Looks like this might well be a bug.
I have opened a ticket to get it looked at.
Thanks

Wow, this was a fast find.  That's why I love the community here at Simple Press.  When things break, they quickly get fixed and the forum software gets better and better!  I think BBPress could learn a few things from how Simple Press is handled.  That's why people are loving this software.
