usernames registration with spaces on multisite install
I have a multisite wp install with buddy press and I am seeing the following behavior.
If someone registers and puts a space in the username i.e. john doe, the username is changed by wp to johndoe, (it is my understanding that this is done by wordpress) The issue that it is not really highlighted to the user, so if they don’t pay close attention to the username and try to enter the username that they entered (with the space) they will get an invalid username message..
My question is this, is there a way to notify the user during registration (they receive a confirmation email but honestly i don’t think they will read it close enough to realize the change in username) that the username with the space is not acceptable? maybe to add some king of validation or error message when a space is entered in the username field?
I have tried several plugins that would restrict usernames without any success so though maybe I could approach this at the registration form itself.
I am running WP 3.4.2 and buddy press 1.6.1
Any help would be greatly appreciated
