    How can I differentiate sending a single message where users have the same first and last name?

    No.

    FEP uses first and last name to identify recipients. The directory lists users by first and last name. The search box in mew message to: field lists recipients by first and last name.

    When creating new message from message menu, (to: box “type user name”), search will return first & last name of recipient. Because I have some users with same first and last name, both users appear in search box with no way to tell which one to choose.

    In order to know which one to choose I have to search by username or nicename. Which means I have to know the username or nicename beforehand.

    This is confusing because the person sending a message only knows the recipient by first and last name.

    A username/nicename column in directory would help solve problem. All FEP users should know username/nicename associated with first & last name.

    Thanks,

    This plugin uses “Display Name” all the places. Please go to Dashboard > Users > Your Profile > Name to see the difference of names. Display name is made to show publicly and this plugin use that.

    Also You can use fep_filter_show_which_name hook to change which name will be used.

    If I have three users with same display name, how do i know the one to pick from the list?

    add following code in your theme’s (child theme’s if any) functions.php

    add_filter( 'fep_filter_show_which_name', function( $which ){
        return 'user_login';
    });
    

    This will show user_login instead of display name.
