Usernames with spaces
edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Quick question - how are these users (imported from another CMS) @mentioned in Vanilla, can they be?
As far as I know there's currently no way to @mention usernames with spaces.
There is a very specific piece of PHP code in the Vanilla source that handles the @mention usernames.
You will have to adjust the regular expression of that piece of code to allow for @mention usernames with spaces and even then I don't know if it will really work.
There is at least 1 other topic thread about usernames with spaces in the @mention
Search in the forum.
There was an error rendering this rich post.
No problem - there's a few so i'll just edit their usernames and email them all.
