What is the point of the display name in the profile? I put one in there but it doesn't show. Is it not what will show on our posts? I was trying to make my screen name the same on all forums I'm on. Something else I found, when typing a post, if you select some of you text, it highlights black and is unreadable.

The display name is at the bottom of the box that contains your Avatar and information. I see F12Mahon on yours. If you want the member name that is just under your avatar to change, just let me know what you want to show there instead of the emcmahon.

On the highlight and it turning black, what are you highlighting and what software are you using? Like Win10, XP, Linux? Chrome, Firefox, etc.

Testing via laptop so I can highlight something.

Now I saw it and sent it to developer to get the highlight changed to something lighter so we can see the text through it.

Example I did:

I would like my display name to be my member name.

When I highlight text that I have typed, it is covered in black. I have a nervous tic that when I am reading text, I press the left mouse button and drag it across text I have read. Drives my daughters crazy when they see it! Maybe selecting would be a more correct term than highlighting. I am on Win 10, with Firefox 69.0.1 64bit. Going to insert screenshot to show it.

Well, I should be faster. I do this a lot and have know the controls and moves better (for now anyway).

You will notice that I put your F12Mahon as the member name. You can go back into that display name and put something clever in it if you'd like.

I understand highlighting to keep up with what you are reading, and I've sent to have it fixed so when you highlight you can easily read through the highlight.

Yes, Rocking chairs on a good porch is an excellent thing to have a crush on. You sit and rock after admiring the yard you just groomed with your IHCC.

The highlighting was fixed last night and I just now checked it. This is MUCH better.
