Hi, Paul! Thanks for your reply.
Most likely, this is coming from the function `verifyUsername`, which is in bb_func_checkusr.php. Usernames could be about "abcd123", but they could not be about "123abcd", and they could not consist of numbers only.
Just confirming that I have understood you correctly; are you saying miniBB's default verifyUsername function is:
- disallow names that contain only numbers
- disallow numbers before letters?
If the above is true, then something odd is going on, because ...
a) I have always used the default bb_func_checkusr.php,
b) I have users with usernames that begin with numbers! Those names were registered years ago. I do not know exactly from when the ability to do register names that starts with numbers stopped. :(
Has the verifyUsername function changed over the years, Paul? Do you advise I replace my copy?
