Show a display name instead of username
I'd like for users and their posts to be labeled with a display name (e.g. "Jon Smith") that's separate from the username they use to login (which is how our SSO works). I've searched around a bit, as I could've sworn I saw someone else ask as similar question, but I couldn't find anything, so I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas as to how best to go about doing this.
I'll be delving into myself in a couple days, but first I wanted to see what the community had to say. Also I'd really like to keep it confined to a plugin and thereby avoid modifying any of the core files, but I'm new to Vanilla development and am not sure if that will be possible for this particular feature.
