    Hi - my first post, so thanks in advance for any hep!

    I (short sightedly) set up usernames on my site to use a FIRST_LASTNAME format. Now I'm trying to work on SEO and have learned that google preffers dashes to underscores to seperate keywords. I can't change the usernames, so is it possible to get wordpress to replace the underscores used in the url?

    my testing site is http://ontheinside.no-ip.info/ontheinside.info, which is where permalinks are enabled while i troubleshoot.

    thanks

    Just FYI, in case someone is ever after the info, I could not find a solution without editing the core files. I just ended up updating the nicenames field in the wp_users table with dashes.

    lesson learned
