Usernames with spaces do not work

    My username on my blog is “The Geek”, which does not work in bbPress… cannot even login, even though I’m already logged into WordPress.

    This is not an integration issue, because other usernames without spaces work perfectly fine between WordPress and bbPress.

    I’m comfortable with hacking the source… just wondering if anybody else has already found and fixed this issue already.

    I don’t think wordpress allows “@” does it?

    You shouldn’t allow email addresses as usernames on a forum.

    Very bad idea.

    However that said, this same routine could be used to override that.

    I tried this plugin, and it’s not working with v 0.8.3.

    I need spaces and special characters like รก. Any advice?

    I’ve just been caught out by the spaces problem – I’m finding that integrating WP and bbPress is a painful experience…

    Hat doff to HowToGeek – solved the problem magnificently. Thanks!

    Thanks, worked for me.
