In progress username censor

Post by Flappypaddles on December 20th 2013, 7:13 pm

is there a way to stop people creating usernames with * in the name when posting as a guest

I have one person who keeps posting in a guest section and each time I add another variation of her name to teh word censor she adds more stars to it. I cannot just add * to the word censor as it requires a 3 letter name.
If it is not possible to add just * to the username censor then is it possible to change the number of letters required for a username.

does * not work as a wildcard under the username censor?

only way i can think f a way around that is only to allow letters a-z and A-Z and numbers 0-9, and not allow other characters in usernames, I thought this was available on phbb3, I know that this would have to be an option selected by the admin of the forum, as other languages do use special characters, I often use the in some of my usernames on forums, but it would be nice if you could have an admin created list to allow some and not other characters.

Hello,

Have you tried putting *** into the username field?
