WordPress Usernames

Since the new PetNet went live six weeks ago I have received occasional reports of confusion caused by the difficulty of identifying the author of some of the posts.  This is because, by default, WordPress gives only the Username of the author and some of you have some intriguing Usernames that are not easily associated with the person we know and love.

There are two possible solutions to this problem:

1.  Sign in and then go to: https://wordpress.com/me  Change the entry labelled ‘Public Display Name’ from your Username (the default setting) to your actual name. This is the preferred action.

2. If you do not wish to make the above change, for whatever reason, please be sure to sign each and every post with your full name.

With my grateful thanks for your co-operation.
