"Allow Special Characters in usernames" in admin


We are testing with open source CB since we will be purchasing the premium copy of Clipbucket so we wanted to make sure the server we have will work with Clipbucket.

We will be replacing our old video CMS library with CB and one of the thing is that our current usernames have dashes in it like new-life-ag, texas-district-office or lac-building etc. On the test server we have the Allow Special Characters in usernames enabled but it won’t let us create username with dashes in it.

Is this a bug or dashes is not considered a special character?

Thank you


It can easily be handled with custom code, dash can be allowed.
