    I will check with our developer but I believe it was filed three weeks ago.

    fwiw – the wordpress backend checks if the same user_nicename AND user_login exist. if it does, it will attach a suffix (this is part of wp-includes/registration.php – wp_insert_user)

    Are you sure this is a BP issue though? I can’t replicate your issue on a local test install, that you have a customised site with members listed in some manner of grouping is suggestive of a plugin at work possibly? I may be wide of the mark though on that.

    As was asked is there actually a ticket on this that we can look at or do you have a link to the post you made raising the issue.

    i think its a hybrid issue – if you update the user via wp-admin – that uses wp_insert_user (maybe the name is being changed or something to trigger the suffix increased that is used in wp instead of the buddypress front-end way)

    So does that imply it’s not strictly a BP issue/ in which case the ticket really needs directing to WP if it’s to be dealt with.

    I’ve put my comments on the trac ticket.

    Obviously when you edit a user in WP, it doesn’t append anything to the user_nicename.This happens when BP is active.

    I’ve added to the ticket, can’t replicate the issue.

    I’ve added to the ticket, found the cause.

    Jeff, what’s the solution then? Or how do we prevent this in the future? I read the ticket, but I’m at a loss. I’m encountering this problem right now, and I had to go into phpmyadmin to correct all the user_nicename fields to remove the -2 at the end. do we simply ask people not to put spaces in their usernames?
