Probably known issue, but haven't seen that reported recently.

In the forum, you can see the date and author of the last post in the right column - this is OK.
However, if the author of the last post does not have a real name, the real name of the former last post (second last) author is used.

Example:

I noticed this too after I joined in 2017 and asked about. I got a couple of replies…

ladysolo14 ~ “The names in parentheses are the real name of the user if they choose to make that public. As for the wrong name displaying, that is a known error in the system.”

ionicdesign ~ “Sometimes this happens on the top of a section that has some parts beneath with restricted access (on the most recent post) showing username and real name from two different posts.

Otherwise it is meant to be username (real name).”


Here’s the thread for context if interested…
