I have 2 registered users both using the same screen name : Janice.

I know them both: Janice Sherley and Janice Swanwick. They are completely different people.

On this screen:


when I click on”Janice in “last edited by Janice” it takes me to this screen:


This includes topics edited by the 2 different Janices.

We are going to have to do something to enable us to be able to view all work contributed by an individual.

Maybe Kete needs to check for uniqueness before approving / accepting a screen name? Or can it be set up as a dual factor background thingee which has each Janice displaying as Janice but they are unique because each is tied to an invisible email or login name (which doesn’t display?)

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”
    • Tag changed from users to login, users, user_name
    • Milestone set to 1.1

    Rather than requiring that user names are unique, we have altered searching for contributions of a person to use their unique login which we have also added to the search record.

    This has the desired effect of limiting the results list of contributions to exactly one user in the system instead of all users that share the same user name.

    Rebuilding of zoom indexes required. see UPGRADE_README.
