Solved Stop people registering with email addresses

Post by JaneDoe September 11th 2020, 6:50 pm

As the title says, I would like to stop people using an email address as a user name. It seems to me the easiest way would be by blocking the @ symbol. The problem is you have to use a minimum of 3 characters. I read somewhere on the forum that by using the * symbol like *@* this would work to block the middle character. Unfortunately it doesn't work.

I also tried this tutorial:

https://help.forumotion.com/t134381-block-numbers-in-usernames-at-registration?highlight=restrict+usernames

I could not get it to work. Though I admit I may have done it wrong when changing the restrict to characters instead of numbers.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Very Happy
