With the introduction of the Additional name fields in Moodle 2.6 (
MDL-31776 - Additional name fields), we tried setting the setting $CFG->fullnamedisplay to take advantage of this new feature. However, there are several places in Moodle in which the fullname() function is passed with the $override parameter and our $CFG->fullnamedisplay setting is ignored.
Why is the $override flag needed? Does it still make sense with the "Additional name fields" feature?
Here is a list of places in Moodle in which the override flag is set:
admin/user (multiple files call it)
