I want to allow more than 20 characters for usernames

Hello, is there a way to allow more than 20 characters as user name ? I want people to use their real name and family name. My own name and family name is over the 20 characters limit and I suspect other people are too.

What do I need to do to allow longer user names ?

Thanks in advance !

Somebaudy,

As to the number of charactures in the User Name you can set that in the settings. Just go to your admin area, then Configuration, then Member and forum options. Scroll down about 3/4 of the way down to the block that says Maximum username length.

As to the Real name thing. Change USERNAME=Username to USERNAME=Full Name in ..lang/EN/global.ini
All blocks that asked for a Username before will now ask for Full Name
