    I'm currently using WordPress 3.0 RC1 and whenever I try to create test accounts with upper cases, I get that message... How do I allow uppercase? I checked everything in the admin and can't find the option.


  2. You mean for user names?

    I don't believe you can out of the box. I've never found a plugin that can do it. Also, per this trac ticket, this is intentional: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/11753

    I just ran into this myself.

    I had been using the naming convention of firstname.lastname for Usernames. Now I can't seem to do this, some of the older account usernames follow this, and now the new ones will not.

    Is there a way to get this so periods will work?
