Support » Plugin: Smart WP Login » ERROR: This username is invalid because it uses illegal characters.

    Hi,

    I’m having troubles with WordPress showing an error message during registration with this plugin enabled.

    The registration form asks for an email address and password. However the error says that the username I’ve chosen is invalid.

    ERROR: This username is invalid because it uses illegal characters. Please enter a valid username.

    The email I’m using contains plus and dash characters – they’re valid in email addresses, but obviously not usernames.

    Example email address: person+extra-name@example.com

    I’m not sure how this plugin generates the username – I’m guessing it’s based on the user’s email address though. Is there any way to make Smart WP Login + WordPress accept registration with the above valid email address?

    Thanks
