    Hi all – great plugins!

    I’ve seen something weird happening … on the Members Map and individual member pages (liveandoutloud.ca/the-map) the members’ names are being shown as their locations.

    Strangely, it seems that the member’s name is correctly recorded, but then replaced by their location almost instantly. See the attached…

    Can anyone suggest what might be causing this?

    Best,
    Trevor

    As a quick follow-up, the users’ first and last names have somehow been changed to their location (see attached).

    It seems that it follows a pattern of taking the first complete word of the location, making that the user’s name and the remaining location becomes the user’s last name. This is true for all users that I sampled.

    Any ideas?

    Hello Trevor,

    I have never seen this issue before, weird.

    At what point exactly does the user’s name change? After entering location for the first time? After updating it? Randomly ? What happens if you delete the user’s location?

    Hi Eyal,

    I don’t know how to answer your questions…but it seems that the user correctly registers with a username and then the name is somehow immediately changed to their location after they register. Please see the order of the entries on the user’s page in the attached screenshot; I’ve numbered the order in which the system logs the activity on the account.

    This could be fatal for using these plugins – I’m working on this right now and will be until this is resolved.
