when I install WP with either Fantastico or Softaculous,
I always make a username with lots of different symbols
such as something like this:
(neither of these are actual UN/PW - just
examples of what I usually do)
when I log in, it usually works just fine...
Another goofy thing.... if the symbols that
I use in setting up the UN/PW are not OK, why
not let me know BEFORE installation completes?
However, when I change username in phpMyAdmin,
I cannot use the majority of these symbols - which,
I believe - go a long way to providing greater
security for my sites.
I think that, about the only punctuation
that may be used in phpMyAdmin are !.-
PLEASE, fix it so that complicated UN can be
set up in phpMyAdmin
If there really is a major danger for WP sites, why
is it still so difficult to create a really difficult
first line of defense
