Is there a plan for a D7 release?
I've had a first go at upgrading this to D7
It doesn't work yet, I can't figure out what to do with lines 222 and 223:
$full = token_get_values($type, $object, TRUE);
$tokens = token_prepare_tokens($full->tokens);
token_get_values() and token_prepare_tokens() don't exist any more.
If these two problems are solved, I think it;'s pretty close, does anyone have any ideas for this?
I think you also may want to take a look at the Realname module for Drupal 7 which was rewritten to use the Token API.
Any update on this? I need a solution. The Realname module won't work because I need to create the username automatically.
I don't have time to continue with this at the moment, can someone else work on it?
How about putting up a request for more maintainers on the project page?
I could try to port the module to D7 in the spare time and take the manteinance for it.
Thanks for stepping up to the plate @Aldus
Okay I started work on this module. Give me a couple of days please.
Here is the Drupal 7 port of Auto Username:http://drupal.org/sandbox/nouriassafi/1564376
Feedback is more than welcome!
would it be possible to release it as a standard dev in the module page?
There might be a duplication of efforts here...
I've been using this module successfully since September. Updating it last week however did create a critical problem #1566418: Does not support legacy profile module from D6 to D7 upgrade
I've just checked out the realname_registration module, and it does indeed look like a duplication of efforts. The main difference I guess, is that realname_registration is more user friendly, but less flexible, whilst auto_username is more flexible with its support of tokens and an api hook.
Whatever the case, I've now added a link to realname_registration to the auto_username project page with a bit of an explanation too.
