#4101 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

user_nicename being rewritten when BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE is enabled and username has spaces

Reported by: boonebgorges Owned by: boonebgorges

Severity: normal Version:

See #2642 and

The same thing is arising when BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE is set to true, according to the report in the support forum. Should be examined to see if we can recreate.

At a glance, I'm not sure why in r3675 I opted to return the value untouched when BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE is *false*. Seems like it should be the opposite, since when BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE is false, a value with a space should never be passed to bp_core_strip_username_spaces(). But this needs more examination.

Marking with a low priority, as it appears to be quite an edge case.
