WordPress Special Characters in Usernames

Description

This plugin enables usernames containing special characters (russian, cyrillic, arabic) on your WordPress blog.

Per default WordPress does not allow to use special characters in usernames. Non-latin characters are silently filtered out and
your users cannot create accounts containing cyrillic (russian) or arabic letters. This plugin is the solution to this problem.

The plugin works for users that register with their username/password as well as for users that register using our
Social Login plugin for WordPress.

Please Note
Special characters are encoded in the database and take a bit more space than regular characters. If users having special characters
in their usernames still cannot register after having installed the plugin then you probably have to increase the length of the column user_nicename
in the table wp_users in your database.

Example:

ALTER TABLE `wp_users` CHANGE `user_nicename` `user_nicename` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT '';
