hyphenated usernames (hyphenation)

    When i didn’t have buddypress and bbpress installed i could register usernames with spaces (ie “james white”) now that they are installed, it adds a hyphenate. Is there anyway to let the spaces stay?

    If memory is correct due to certain functionality with BuddyPress, it does not allow usernames with spaces in it. I don’t think this is specifically with bbPress.

    Jared,
    thanks for the reply! I have users that have full names from before buddypress installation, but now they the system automatically adds the hpyhenation. I guess this isn’t a huge issue, but when people register with the space on the buddypress registration page, the system gives no error message so people think that they got registered. (ie if they put john doe the system registers john-doe but makes no note of it. is there a way to add this error correction? If space cause an error as when you input a email wrong or passwords don’t match?
