With Invision Community 4.4 this plugin is ALMOST no longer needed! Go to the Admin Control Panel - Members - Profiles - Profile Settings Tab, scroll to the bottom of the page:


Set that to global and save. That should tackle 99% of what this plugin did years ago...


So what does this plugin do now?
This plugin just looks for the edge cases that new internal setting misses and tries to patch them up. Some are doable, others not. It now covers:

Profile page header and member hovercards.




Messenger conversation participants block.



Note: The messenger sidebar area is more or less out of bounds for name formatting. Those names appearing there are not template-output but constructed via the underlying messenger methods and are inserted into language strings directly. It could be done but honestly its way way too messy and not worth anyone's time.


Forum posts member info sections. 




{member='name'} Template Output Plugins
These are shortcuts in templates that allow the template author to kick out a single member variable. Version 19 of this plugin now has a setting that will allow you to format these specific instances universally. You'll likely notice it firstly in the usermenu at the top of your community where your logged in name appears. If this, or any other newly-formatted name showing up somewhere is not to your liking you'll need to leave this setting off as this is applied to every {member='name} instance and cannot be filtered or targeted to exclude apps or sections of applications specifically at this time.


Heads Up! 
The old free-versions of this plugin are no longer offered here. Those were for the 4.2, 4.3, and earliest 4.4 Invision Community versions. I think we're past those times now so I've removed those attachments and informational text.

  • Absolutely no changes whatsoever other than incrementing the version number and resubmitting so this can be flagged as 4.7 compatible.

Its not compatible anymore with 4.7 and php 8

Response from the author:

Running fine on PHP 8 and 4.7.x locally and on my live sites. If you are having problems there is a support topic you can use...

After purchasing, I followed the guide however the links on users hasn't changed anywhere


Response from the author:

You still have to enable the global setting in 4.4... This is, does, and continues to be bulletproof working. Maybe use the support topic before reviewing?

Why on earth are there no reviews for this excellent and very cheap plug-in.

It's great. Installs easily. Works automatically. Adds a greater sense of identity to group membership. It's cheap
