<div>I now see what is happening. I enrolled the students from a
spreadsheet, and took their name to be their Username. The first and
last names are blank, and that is what is supposed to show up in the
upper right.<br>
Also, they now show as Student. Don't know why they didn't before,
although it may have had to do with the start date for the course not
being set or something. They now show correctly.<br>

<br>&gt; I seem to be missing something simple. I did this when I<br>&gt; h=

Thus to have this 1 take affect you need to either<br>- set it completely c=
