This MOD for phpBB2/phpBB3 uses username as the nickname for the user. However a Guest nickname is used if the nickname contains characters that are not valid within IRC.

Customizing

If you add a new profile field or already have a MOD in your forum that allows you to use a valid IRC nickname, you may easily modify the nickname line:

$nickname = is_valid_nickname($userdata['username']) ? $userdata['username'] : '';

To:

$nickname = is_valid_nickname($userdata['username']) ? $userdata['username'] : $userdata['irc_nickname'];

Where 'irc_nickname' is the name of the profile field. You may also switch things around if you prefer IRC nickname over the forum username:

$nickname = is_valid_nickname($userdata['irc_nickname']) ? $userdata['irc_nickname'] : $userdata['username'];
