Usage

The “Display Name” is the name shown as post author – e.g. “posted by John Doe”. WordPress only allows you to select from a few given values. This plugin changes the Display Name field to a regular text input field where you can type in anything you like. There are no settings. Just install and activate.

Building a 5-multi-site network that stands on true member Privacy Protection mission so this plug-in and another of Peter’s Plug-Ins, Hide URL Slug, are crucial. My team created a list of “Web Super Heroes” - You’re in it ... Thanks for all that you do good Peter.
