External User Display Names

  Asked By: Deepak    Date: May 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1437

Is there a way to set the external site to display something other than the user's account name (email address) as their display name? Currently, it always displays "Welcome john@doe.com" instead of John or John Doe.

the login name will be shown if the user  does not have a display  name, ie if SPUser.Name is empty it falls back to the SPUser.LoginName.
If you want it any other way you can always customize the welcome.ascx control template.
