Username with only numbers?

Username with only numbers? was created by noerkjaer
Hi.

We are about to launch a webpage where people are registrered with their membershipnumber as ID, this is a 6 digit number.

But CB doesn't accept an ID that only consists digits. Any special reason for that?

Any workaround?

I have created a site with ID's which consist of 5 and 6 digits for the members. I used CBJuice to import them all. There wasn't any issues going this route.

The other issue is minimum password length. While I understand the importance of a more secure method, in our case it's not not needed for the membership. But again, I worked around the minimum password length of (6) while using CBJuice and used 5 digits for a password. (Administrator's use a 10 alphanumeric combo for their passwords.)

Check the link in my signature for help on this. Altering my javascript hack of cb's core, you could restrict new usernames to only numbers...

I know this is a long time ago, but I haven't still found any solution to this problem.

Anyone that knows a workaround so usernames can be only numbers?

CB version 1.1 on Joomla 1.5.3

We have come a long way converting from the old site, and are ready for launch in a few weeks time. :woohoo: But I would like to let our 500 members keep their username.

Peter
