    Hi,
    I'm trying to set up some users that have long nicknames. Sometimes four or five words long. I'm finding that the login doesn't work with longer nicknames. One of my users has a 24 character nickname and the login doesn't work for that user.
    Is there a specific character limit?
    Thanks.

    You could try heading into phpmyadmin, and looking at the wp_users table. There you will find a variable for the character limit which you can alter.
    Check the 4th screenshot here: (Type column)

    Be careful in there :)
