#3104: Inconsistent display of User name

     Type:  defect               |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal               |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review

 When looking at a members profile, you see the Display name followed by
 the @user_nicename. The help says this can be used to send messages to the
 member.  However, if this user_nicename is changed to be different from
 the user login, messaging no longer works.  you can see here http://bni-
 weymouth.org/members/LindaPH/activity/ that I have a member with a LOGIN
 username of Lindy, she has a DISPLAY name of Linda and I have changed the
 user_nicename to be LindaPH. Although the help sys that @LindaPH can be
 used in messaging it can't. To send a message you would still need to use
 @Lindy as can be verified by the Mentions count (also seen on this page).
 There needs to be a consistency between the fields used.  I did this in
 order to hide the login usernames for administrators; this workes in that
 the url uses the user_nicename but the 'mentions' gives the game away!
