    Hey just installed this plugin on my blog and i renamed my admin user to something similar to theblogger'n and then i got the message that my new username was changer to theblogger\'n or theblogger'\n, sorry cant quite remember which. Anyways the problem is that I cant sign in anymore after the change. i can reset the password with my email, but not username, and then the email tells me that my username is theblogger'n (which still doesnt work) and when i click the get a new password link in my email i get this message "Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid.".

    So what i really need to know is what characters actually replaced the stupid sign: ' that i put in my username. Do anyone know this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    note: when i try to sign in with the username theblogger'n or theblogger\'n i just get the message that eighter my password or username is wrong.

    Working on a solution, yet special chars like / and ' are so called "escaped" and therefore your username is different.

    Fix provided in version 1.3, unfortunately for you I have implemented the regular wordpress validation function.

    This does not allow special chars and will display:

    [username] NOT changed -> This username is invalid. Please enter a valid username.
