#460 closed defect (fixed)

cannot get to user page if use email as 'login name'

Component: admin Version:
Keywords: login, privacy, sign-up, user Cc:


on sign-up, without realising that 'login name' was the old display name, i re-entered my email address. this then breaks the user page url (rails routes parser can't cope with the at symbol i think) so i couldn't get to

seems that 'login name' should be 'display name' or 'public name', and restricted in format to be valid in rails url.

I confirm the bug with my display name, which I have wrongly set to my email address.

Is there any way to change the display name so that I have access to my homepage ?

It is actually the '.' character that causes the problem as rails treats it as a separator when parsing the URL to route the request.

I have now changed the label to "Display name" and stopped it accepting any character that might cause a problem with rails.
