apostrophe in user email (2 posts)

    Trying to set up a new user, but their email address has an apostrophe, like:

    jerry_o'connell@website.com

    but it kicks an error of invalid email. Except it IS a valid email address. Not much comes up searching the forums or google.

    Any directions I could look to solve this now?

    thanks!

    Yeah, the email cleansing is not setup correctly, requires a core hack to fix it.

    Im writing a plugin in the short term to fix it for my sites.
