Change display order of Lastname, Firstname

When a user logs in to docebo, they see name displayed in the upper right hand corner in the format:
Welcome!, Lastname Firstname.

How can it be changed to:
Welcome!, Firstname Lastname

???

Hi,
it is not possible with the built-in functionalities. If you want to achieve that, you have to work on a html basis.

To change this, edit the /lib/lib.user.php file (after making a backup copy!).

Search for getUserName then edit to look like this:

Code: Select all

public function getUserName() {
    $user_info = $this->aclManager->getUser(getLogUserId(), false);
    return ( $user_info[ACL_INFO_FIRSTNAME].$user_info[ACL_INFO_LASTNAME]
        ? $user_info[ACL_INFO_FIRSTNAME].' '.$user_info[ACL_INFO_LASTNAME]
       : $this->aclManager->relativeId($user_info[ACL_INFO_USERID]) );
}
Again, always back up a file before editing! :)

rsaucier, thanks for posting this!
(I am no programmer, so I wouldn't know how to code it... ;-) )
