    @gspark001

    bbpress registration did not indicate there was a set minumu for how many characters in username, might be a good idea if there was a note in the register form

    i kept getting a username not valid and did not know why, how come with wordpress the username was ok but not on bbpress ?

  • If I am reading this right, the username was too short? I just registered a user with a single letter as the username on the recent TRAC version and it worked. Others seeing this as well?

    In fact, there is a user of just “M” in this forum and has been for ‘quite a few’ versions of bbPress running this forum…..hmm….

    well i registered with gspark and it said invalid username so i assumed it was too short then i added 001 to it and it took

    I registered as ‘M’ on the wp forums ages ago. ;)

    And I run all my registrations through wp instead of bbpress, so I’m no help with this one other than that.

    is there a way to limit the maximum number of characters for a username?

    Yes just edit the textfield (where you have to enter your username) and just let it except like 5 characters or less…

    That’s the maxlength property of input fields.

    You can still edit the HTML, though, and submit your crazy username. A serverside check is best.
