Out of the box when a *logged-in* user types a comment on a Atahualpa blog it displays their nickname (which might be the same thing as their first name? not sure) next to their comment.
So for me, for example, my nickname is "Mark" and my username is "piphut". When I post a comment it takes the form of:
Mark: this is my comment.
What I would like to do is add the username next to the nickname, in parenthesis, next to an '@' symbol. The username would not link to anything, just be text. So the above comment would now look like:
Mark (@piphut): this is my comment.
P.S. for anyone interested this is because I recently integrated Buddypress with atahualpa and using the @username function works just like a twitter mention. @nickname does nothing.
