Re: Characters in usernames cause strange issues
.I have to admit I’m a little baffled as to why there needs to be a “username compatibility mode”. Wouldn’t using the “user_nicename” for everything (except just literally displaying the username) sidestep any issues with the actual form of the username? I’m just speaking from my wealth of ignorance, but that just seems weird to me.
i had the same thought and problem with @ in the user_login (hence switching everything to nicename)
