Re: Sanitizing user names

Hey Ipstenu,

The plugin you suggested seems to work after a wp-bbpress integration! thanks a lot :)

In my case, I’m forcing registration and login through wp. I tried registration through bbpress before, and I think you run into a lot of problems.

The sanitize_user() function is the same in bbPress as it is in WordPress. Even the filter names are the same. Still, WordPress plugins don’t generally work in bbPress without some modification.

If it is the same function, in my opinion this feature should be in the core of both, wb and bbpress. It has no sense to allow double registrations like “John” and “john”, don’t you think so?
