Replace the user display name to other user field

The following snippet shows how to replace the user display name by a custom field. Just uncomment the replacement you want to keep.

If you want to show a custom user meta value, use the WordPress get_user_meta( $user_id, $key, $single ) function

function my_prefix_replace_display_name_on_leaderboards( $output, $leaderboard_id, $position, $item, $column_name, $leaderboard_table ) {

    $user = get_userdata( $item['user_id'] );

    // Replace the user display name by the user nickname (alias), eg: jhondoe
    //$output = $user->nickname;

    // Replace the user display name by the user email, eg: jhondoe@gamipress.com
    //$output = $user->user_email;

    // Replace the user display name by the user login (not recommended), eg: jhondoe90
    //$output = $user->user_login;

    // Replace the user display name by the first name, eg: Jhon
    //$output = $user->first_name;

    // Replace the user display name by the last name, eg: Doe
    //$output = $user->last_name;

    return $output;
}
