Network Username Restrictions Override
Allowing spaces... (3 posts)

    WordPress usernames typically allow up to 1 space between words, and trim() the outside. It seems that this plugin doesn't allow spaces. Can you change that?

    Could you elaborate? I don't believe the multisite functionality of WordPress allows spaces in usernames:

    The first thing wpmu_validate_usersignup does is strip spaces and throw an error if there were any.

    I am having the same problem.
    I am moving from single WP site to WP MU and most of my users have space in there user names.
    How do you allow spaces in username so I can port the old users the the new site without having to change there usernames?
