Some info about yesterdays upgrade

Yesterday we upgraded World to CMS 6 R2 (huzzah!), but we also included a tweek on display name and aliases.

Your display name will now be, 1) Alias, 2) First name + Last name, 3) part of user name*.

Your alias will also used for the profile link. So, instead of the old …/Community-Profile-Card/?encrypedid=3ncryp73d1d, we will now use …/Community-Profile-Card/PappaBj0rn.

However, if you havn’t set an alias, we’ll use the old style urls with ?encryptedid.

Now, there is a tiny, tiny problem.

The my settings page will enter first name + last name by default in your alias field, so many of you will have this set as your alias. The problem is multiple users might share alias as there was no duplicate checks done before this update. But the url …/Community-Profile-Card/Paul Smith can obviously only display one Paul Smith, thusly, all the other Paul Smithes (those not shown) will have to remove their aliases or come up with new ones.

Easy peasy.

Now, follow rawberts lead and go claim your alias, before any one else does!

*Since we don’t want to display your e-mail (which is your username), we’ve previously replaced the domain part with This has been changed to just drop the domain, so will be when used in the display name.

Could be that there is some cache issue. I'll look into it.

The reference to x.js has now been removed.
