email addresses

Hi there. New to Vanilla software and a non-developer to boot.

I have a Vanilla powered site hosted at iPage. A few days ago I purchased a SSL Certificate and upgraded to a dedicated IP. In the process of getting this done, I inserted the code for the cert and a SiteLock seal, played around with their location and eventually removed them. I was also working on a few other things.

At the end of the day I had a new applicant with an email address of 'newapplicantatnewemaildotcom'. I thought "that's weird. why would he spell out the email address that way?" Then I checked the User List and discovered that all addresses had been changed from the myemail@mymail.com format to myemailatmymaildotcom.

Does this have an obvious, easy solution and I just don't know where to look?

    what does the user email look like in the user table via phpmyadmin.

    does it have @ signs or the "at" word.

    after you answer that then one can proceed.

    in the user table it should be with @ signs.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    They are all correct, with the @ symbol.

    there is probably a string_replace or a preg_match somewhwere in the code. search the code for email and then filter it through preg match or str_replace.

    or it could even be in a javascript.

    I really don't know how to do an efficient search of the code. And as a newbie to Vanilla software, I am just beginning to scratch the surface of the file structure.

    Let me give some more info. This morning I cleared the cache of ini files and deleted some files from the Smarty/compile folder. The user list was then back to normal. I thought I was fine. But this afternoon the problem resurfaced and clearing the cache doesn't do the trick. Within 60 seconds the cache is being re-populated with the same ini files.

    Does that help you to help me further?

    I don't know if you have minify installed - I'd get rid of it as fast as I could.

    Are things loading slowly on your site, and is jquery working. You have to use a webdeveloper tool.

    I've seen things in the profile appear as at and then magically change to "@" before my eyes, so i figure it might be in a jquery script.

    Try the default theme and remove all your plugins and see if the problem goes away.

    you can also
    Try installing memberslist enhanced and see if the email displays correctly. but it won't solve the problem, but it might give some insights.

    yea and what is it doing in the cache ?

    The only folders in there should be Smarty and compile in Smarty

    @vrijvlinder, nothing in the Minify folder. In fact, now it's gone:)

    @peregrine, i disabled all plugins thinking (because of your jquery question) that the problem might be in the newly installed Useful Functions / Page Speed combination. Checked the user list and all was well. Re-enabled Useful Functions / Page Speed combination and the problem is back.

    Problem localized anyway :)

    pagespeed is just like minify it obfuscates and screws everything up , don't use it

    vrijvlinder is of the female persuasion. whatever you do, don't call her "bro"

    lol I prefer man for that matter as in Human.... I think I am the only one here of that genetic persuasion

    guy's is valid p , I am guilty of using it too towards a bunch of women. I think the term now means people.

    You are right about bro that part I don't like mostly because I ain't got no bro, lol and it is too close to bra, which would be funny if someone called me bra lmao rotfl
