Community ID and Vanity URL

Looking to change your community ID? Navigate to Administrative Panel > Limits Click the "Change Community ID" button and enter your new community ID.

Community IDs also customize your vanity URL.

Community Name Customization

Sonoran CMS allows you to set whether your member's can customize their community name or not, within the Customization editor there's a misc. setting to allow and disallow members customizing their community name.

To change this setting, click Name Customizations in the General tab.

Within the Name Customizations tab, you can click the icon underneath where it says "Allow Members to Customize Name" to toggle whether or not members can freely change their name or not.

Members can customize their community names, if enabled, in their profile. And by clicking their name or the blue pencil icon next to it, it will then prompt to modify their community name.

Naming Format

In the Name Customizations menu, you can also set the automatic naming format for your community. The naming format determines how a user's name is displayed in the community (e.g. on their profile, form submissions, etc.).

In the above image, you can see that the name is displayed on the profile as John Doe | 1A. In this case, the user's Community Name is set as John Doe, and this user has an Identifier of 1A. To display those together like this, you would set the naming format to {comName} | {identifier}.

Keep in mind that this is just an example, you can change the naming format to include whatever other text you'd like to input, though as of now Community Name, Identifier, and Unique ID are the only things it can automatically draw from.
