The RealName module allows the admin to choose fields from the user profile that will be used to add a "realname" element (method) to a user object. Hook_user is used to automatically add this to any user object that is loaded. Installation ------------ Standard module installation applies. See https://drupal.org/documentation/install/modules-themes/modules-7 for further information. Menus ----- The only menu item is for the settings page. Settings -------- The settings page is at Configuration >> People >> Real name (admin/config/people/realname). This is where you choose which user tokens will be used to create the user's RealName. Permissions ----------- The settings page is controlled by the "Administer Real Name" permission.
