[New Feature] Display nickname on the upper right hand corner

  • Here's a new feature which allows user specific customization.

    When a user is logged in, they will typically see their name on the upper right hand corner of the forum (See screenshot):


    You may wish to display the user-specified nickname instead here. Other users won't actually see this -- so this is more of a personal preference type of thing as everyone will typically see their own name or nickname.

    If you want to display the nickname instead, go to the app's dashboard and under settings, find Primary Header Menu:


    The default value {{ customer.name }}. Normally, Shopify will read this and will parse in the user's own name.

    To render the user's nickname, however, you can now use {{ customer.nickname }}.

    Shopify doesn't have a variable, but Champ will separately parse this out and will render the nickname based on the user's nickname as recorded in Champ's internal database (the one where they've set under their own preferences in the forum).

How to format posts

Champ uses Markdown for formatting text in posts. Certain markup tags (eg. H1) are forbidden to ensure that pages remain semantically compliant. Other tags are automatically sanitized to ensure all content is secure.

  • Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_.
  • Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__.
  • Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**.
  • Strikethrough uses two tildes. ~~Scratch this.~~
  • Links are added automatically, but can be formatted like so: [My link](https://mylink.com)
For more information, take a look at the Markdown Cheatsheet.
