#2727 closed enhancement (wontfix)

allowing hyphens in blog names

If you create blogs in the admin backend under blog-network/blogs, hyphens in blog names are allowed.
But if you create a blog from the frontend via the buddypress form, its restricted.
I think thats strange. Why buddypress stops using hyphens in blog names?
Can this be changed some how?
Thanks Sven

This is fundamentally a Wordpress MS issue.

Might want to post it on the Wordpress Trac.

Okay, just looked into this and BuddyPress does in fact use multisite's validation routine.

bp_core_validate_blog_signup() uses wpmu_validate_blog_signup() to check the blog URL pattern and wpmu_validate_blog_signup() doesn't allow hyphens. So it is indeed a Wordpress MS issue.

I'm guessing the MS admin backend doesn't use wpmu_validate_blog_signup() to check blog URLs when it should.
