I just imported from SimplePress and my users' display names are their full names. I want to change this to only their first name for privacy. Is there a way I can do this in bulk?

Hio philraymond,

I'll ask the developers and let you know if there is any easy way to do it.

@philraymond,

I'm really sorry, but there is no any simple solution I can post here. 

Currently we have a plugin customization and custom addon development services at gVectors Team. They can asses the work and create it for you. Just contact us via sales[at]gvectors.com email address and send a list of requirements you'd like to have.f

If anyone needs to do this, this plugin ( https://memberfix.rocks/change-display-name-publicly-as/ ) did the job for me. It cost $15 but was well worth it to change all of my users' display names in 5 seconds.

Just be sure to email the guy after to ask him to cancel the subscription - otherwise, you'll pay $15 per year (or maybe you want that, if you want future users to have just their first name as the display name too).
