    @davito18

    I was wondering if anyone could help with my problem in Buddypress.

    When a user with a special character in their username edits their profile ‘-2′ is appended to their ‘user_nicename’ meaning that after a few edits their profile url can look like this

    `/members/nicename-2-2-2-2-2/`

    I have reset the ‘user_nicename’ field for affected users in the database and deleted the extra ‘-2s’ but it just starts again. I have also tried adding

    `define( ‘BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE’, true );`

    and also changing this to

    `define( ‘BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE’, false );`

    in bp-custom.php and this makes no difference. I have just installed Buddypress and some users pre-existed with special characters in their username. I did find people with a similar problem on buddypress support (ticket/2642) however it is old and outdated and does not help me.

    Thanks

    Wordpress Version 3.5 / BuddyPress Version 1.6.2 /My Site

    Please post in trac/create a new ticket with detailed/specific information about your installation which can be replicated by developers. For example: which specific special character/s? did you edit profile from front end or did you do this via wp-admin/users? new install? single or multisite?
