Noted. Thats because the forum doesn't actually have a profile field for any sort of "real name". I'll look into seeing if we can easily add custom fields to the forum profiles.

Edit: Custom profile fields easily added. Just need to figure out where the data is stored and how to get it. Probably up by tomorrow.

Edit2: Done. To change your Wiki Handle (the name you want your wiki edits attributed to) go your forum user profile and put something in your Wiki Handle field. (It's just below the birthday field). If this is filled in it will be used as your wiki attribution handle, otherwise it will default to forum username. You must still use the forum username to log-in to the wiki!

Instructions on the current process to get wiki edit access are posted: How to get Wiki Edit Access.
Ask questions specific to following that process/it not working there.

This thread is going back to the Q&A Section shortly. I'd still like input from anyone who foresees themselves helping to administer this in the future (see earlier post). Keep comments in general/other technical questions in this thread.

I'll also be exploring our options on integrating the blog auth with the forum as well. No eta as of right now.

Thanks,
Skyler
