Solved Anyway to prevent usernames from being used?

Post by cavey on May 27th 2013, 4:13 pm

Hello,

Just like to check, i will like to stop users from using certain key words (either front or back) from being used. We tried to use a xxx* as a wild card but it didnt work, so to stop a user from registering part of a word in the username (either front or bad), how do i input it to stop them from doing so.

E.g no used of any form of the word admin

admin_rules
why_this_admin
administrated
etc

Thank you.

Go to Administration Panel -> General -> Censoring -> Username Censoring and enter *admin* into the input field.

I just found out that Admin is not = to admin so if you wish to block Admin and admin accounts you need to put both in the word censor.
