    Really enjoying this plugin, lots of great features!!

    One thing I’m trying to achieve is instead of showing the users full name is it possible to show their nice name?



    Dear Aaron,

    Sorry about the delay here. I didn’t prepare WpChats quite well for filters so you will need to do modify 1 of the core files to add a filter:

    – Go to your-site.com/wp-admin/plugin-editor.php?file=wpchats/includes/core/functions.php (replace your-site.com with your own domain) and remove all the existing code and paste this code in instead http://pastebin.com/WfvskwXy, then save. (or you can do it with file manager or ftp, the file is at wp-content/plugins/wpchats/includes/core/functions.php)

    Once you’ve done that, add the following code to your child theme’s functions file (or via a custom plugin):

    add_filter('wpc_get_user_name', function($name, $user_id){
        return get_userdata($user_id)->nickname;
    }, 10, 2);

    Let me know how it goes. Thank you!
