  • Quick solution? Choose a shorter username. Try taking the last 6 characters off.
  • Thank you for your help .. But I want to have that option open ..
  • In People.Class.UserManager on line 203 you can change the "20" into something else. And you'll have to go into your database and edit your user table and set the Name field to allow longer values.
  • We knew the first part of the solution .. The second part is for you to explain to me more ..?
  • You'll need to log into your database using a database admin program such as phpmyadmin. In there you can view the structure and content of your databases. If you select the LUM_User table and choose to modify the Name field then you can change the limit. If you're not comfortable doing stuff like this I'd suggest you avoid it, personally.
  • Is this something that a simple (from the user POV) admin extension could achieve?
  • Probably, yeah. Usernames longer than 20 characters though? That's pretty long already...
  • I guess if you run a forum where people use their real first and last names as usernames it can be too short in some cases. Like... "Benjamin Smith-Thompson". Or a forum where everyone's username has to contain all 26 characters of the alphabet!
