About This File


This plugin will restore a feature from IP.Board 3 that allows users to view the history of changing display name. Note that 4.2 introduced substantial member history features and this functionality is available in the ACP itself - this plugin, updated for 4.2, let's you access this on the front end.

4.2 tweaks besides functionality included matching the default profile sidebar-area formatting, availability on tablet and mobile view, and a more minimal display.

Admins via ACP can choose which member groups have access to this on a user's profile page.

Originally coded for 4.0x by Adriano Faria. 

What's New in Version 2   See changelog


  • Updated for 4.2x compatibility.
  • Leaner appearance.

I've added this to my board for all my staff but also as a perk for a a paid member group, but it seems it only shows for groups that have permission to edit a profile. Is this correct? I have selected the paid member group from the dropdown within the plugin settings but they definitely do not have the option when viewing another user's profile.

I also have forum moderators that do not have the ability to edit a user's profile and they are unable to view the display name history as well, despite being selected within the plugin's settings.

I have verified this myself.

Thanks for any assistance!
