Usernames with @ redirect to home rather than profile/edit profile
|Reported by:||ersavla||Owned by:|
Using WPMU 2.8.4 and BP 1.1.2, some username links from the member directory fail to navigate to the member profile, but return you to the home page, instead. No error reported.
outolumo reported this behavior at http://buddypress.org/forums/topic/trouble-with-sign-in-the-username; I've got the same problem.
The @-symbol appears to be the difference between username links in the directory that successfully bring you to the member's profile, and those that don't.
(Why it's key, to us anyway: We need to use email as username, without major hacks to make it work. For our use, I haven't come across any WPMU-based blockades on this. Outolumo's workaround doesn't happen to work, given our user base and use case. Admins establish our user accounts, not users via registration.)
