Drupal display name when logging in with Facebook

edited February 2015 in Drupal
I have the service all set up and working great. I am able to login with Facebook. However the name being displayed is a strange version of the user's Facebook name.

The user's FB name is "John Q Doe", but when logging in, Drupal is displaying the name as "john.doe"... any ideas why this is occurring? Can I change the parameters for this? Logging in with Google properly returns "John Doe" as the user.

    Most people prefer not using their real names as user name. Whenver it's possible our system will gather their preferred username from the social network. Google doesn't provide a username, that's why the real names are used.

    You can change this behavior in the file social_login_core.module of the module.

    Please replace this code:

    // Forge User Login. $user_login = ''; if (!empty($identity['preferredUsername'])) { $user_login = $identity['preferredUsername']; } elseif (!empty($identity['displayName'])) { $user_login = $identity['displayName']; } elseif (!empty($identity['name']['formatted'])) { $user_login = $identity['name']['formatted']; } else { $user_login = trim($user_first_name . ' ' . $user_last_name); }


    // Forge User Login. $user_login = ''; if ( ! empty ($user_first_name) || ! empty ($user_first_name)) { $user_login = trim($user_first_name . ' ' . $user_last_name); }elseif (!empty($identity['preferredUsername'])) { $user_login = $identity['preferredUsername']; } elseif (!empty($identity['displayName'])) { $user_login = $identity['displayName']; } elseif (!empty($identity['name']['formatted'])) { $user_login = $identity['name']['formatted']; }
