#349 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Whitespace in username

Reported by: chouf1's profile chouf1 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: minor
Severity: Version: 2.0
Component: Keywords:


As a new subscriber registers with a username containing a whitespace,
ie John Doe, his profile page could not be viewed. Within Firefox, i can see that is loading and loading, (by default i use monsterID) and... nothing.

Be retrieving the space from the name in the db, everything works fine.

This can't always be enforced. BuddyPress isn't always the only thing inserting users. Why isn't the user_nicename used for the slug, instead of the user_login? That's what user_nicename is for, and it is how WP generates its author page URLs.
