Profile User ID Connection

The profile user ID connection feature.

This feature allows to connect the user profiles via their user's ID number.
Set to True if you would like to have user profiles connected via their user ID#. Set to False if you would like to have user profiles connected via their user name.

Note if you connect via their user ID# you will allow your members the ability to use non-supported characters which are not allowed if connecting a profile with their user name.

Warning: This action cannot be reversed.
This setting may lock users out if you force log in by their user names


Therefore:

Go to AdminCP -> Setting -> System Setting -> Manage Setting -> Profile User ID Connection:

Set to True if you would like to have user profiles connected via their user ID#.

Set to False if you would like to have user profiles connected via their user name.


If you enabled this feature, I would recommend you to configure the following settings by adminCP as follow:

Disable Username on Registration = False

Also, there is an user group setting called "Can change own user name?", you can enabled that setting so the user can change his user name.
