Allow dots in usernames

  • Hi,

    I tried to add a new user that has a dot in its name (for example: stefan.papp). This led to an error message: “Only lowercase letters (a-z) and numbers are allowed.”

    It would be a nice features to allow at least dots for usernames

    Thank you!

  • You can change the nickname but not the login name. IIRC this is for security and MultiSite compatibility (you shouldn’t use . or – in a subdomain name, and those are defaulted to the user’s ID).
