The simplest way will be by leaving username as it's main field for logging in. And adding a displayname( in this mod called loginname) which is not so relevant.

Thats is how the MOD origianlly started out, but it is not so simple. Especially if you want the board to reflect the display name everywhere and update all fields, tables, user and admin fucntions accordingly.

It was far simpler to leave the username field as it was and move the authentication process to loginname.

The MOD as it has quite alot of edits as is, but compared to the original concept, it has very few. This was before the time of automod and having to do all edits manually as well.

As I now run a few joomla sites with phpbb integration, I'll explore this and report back when I can sort something out. It may be joomla code changes more than phpbb.
