User Profile Not Found - Display Name Changing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My previous display name was "A.m.a.L - aditi.com - Think Product".

    I have modified it to "A.m.a.L Hashim"

    I opened one of my previous reply and clicked on the display name "A.m.a.L - aditi.com - Think Product". Instead of opening my profile page, its showing This user hasn't created a profile yet, or we can't find them.

    Here I can see, on clicking, its redirecting to a URL which contains my old display name. I think instead of using display name, we should be using some unique ID such as GUID for identifying the user. Display name will get changed frequently or otherwise we should not allow the user to change it.

  • If you updated your name and immediately went to a post, the update to the display name may not have taken effect. It appears your display name is showing up correctly in this forum.

    Do you have an example of the previous replies showing the wrong name?
