I am new here so I don't know if this is a known bug... But it has come to my attention that if you have a different login name then your display name you cannot view your topics because it looks for all posts by your login name and wont find any cause thier all listed under your display name...

-Nick

P.S. is thier anyway to change your display name? or is it all encrypted into the MySQL DB?

Your "login" name and your "display" name? I do not understand.

Which is which? They should be one and the same.

In this thread and in your profile you are nsb823

Here is the search results from the name of nsb823.

You should only have one name. If you indeed have two names, then one needs to be removed. OK :thumbsup:

It can be changed only by an admin. It explains why when I login I must enter yanowhiz however my "display name" is yano.

When you sign up you make a login name that you use to login and then you choose a display name that the users see you as... then when you click the 'My Topics' link on the menu its searches for posts made by your login name and there are no posts with your login name cus all the posts are by you display name...

So do you have the same problem?

I wouldn't say it's a problem I just say it's the way the forums work. Instead of completely renaming me on the forums, Grinler just changed my display name.
