Better log in / username system. Need to have 1 unique username per person.
Hello, the last thing i need to sort out is how users have their usernames etc.
So im making a buddypress site for users of an online game… ideally i would like it to be like this:
You set an email address for logging in with, then you also set a display name.
But just 1 display name, there is no profile name field etc.
The problem i have atm is that users cant use their ingame names as usernames because wp doesnt allow spaces or uppercase letters in the username.
But also, i cant allow them to set their profile name as their in game name because it isnt unique.
I could have loads of people changing their names to the same thing.
Is it possible to have a log in with email, and then im guessing buddypress would have to set a unique id to the user so that their profile name http://www.name.com/idforthatuser
hope someone understands!
