#1366 closed enhancement (no action required)

URL in display names

Reported by: ezd's profile Ezd Owned by:

Component: Core Keywords: dev-feedback


Is it possible to disallow the use of URL's in usernames on BP?

It's just a weird place to use a link and not sure if it's a good idea to allow it?

Don't know if this is a defect or enhencement.

  • Keywords dev-feedback added; reporter-feedback removed
  • Severity set to normal
  • Summary changed from URL in usernames to URL in display names

Tested this issue in trunk.

URLs are not allowed in usernames, however they are allowed in display names (I believe this is what the OP meant).

I don't find this to be an issue, because the URLs are not hyperlinked anywhere except on the xprofile page (/members/USERNAME/profile/).

Will leave it open for a core dev to review.

  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

As r-a-y says, this doesn't cause any functional problems. If it's unwanted on a specific site, there are filters in place that can be used to change the formatting.
