Login does not work with special characters? (2 posts)

    I have created an account with AddThis, and have a ProfileID which is working fine.

    However, when I try to also log into my account (bottom two fields in settings page), it tells me that my credentials are invalid.

    They ARE correct, but I'm guessing it errors since both my e-mail and password contains special characters (in this case "+" amongst others)?

    You are correct that the plus "+" symbol is causing the error. We'll definitely fix that in our next release. However, in the meantime, replace the plus symbol with "%2B" which is the URL-encoded version of the plus symbol. So for example, if you email is:

    sol+helloworld@mycoolsite.com

    Change that to:

    sol%2Bhelloworld@mycoolsite.com

    Let me know if that still doesn't work for you.
