In progress Restrict symbols in usernames

Post by Gabygums on June 14th 2013, 12:29 am

How can I restrict people from using symbols such as the following:
!@#$%^&*()-+={[}]|\"':;<,>/.
I want to restrict those from being used in usernames and to be replaced with the following:
_
How can I do it?

But if I do that, then every post that has "!@#$%^&*()" with be replaced with "_". I want it for the username only.

Do the Username Censoring option.

If forumotion had a POSIX or Perl RegExp matching option for censoring usernames, this would have been so easy *cough I suggested that cough*

But for now, just do as SLGray told you.
