16: Maximum username length

11 years 3 months ago #67558 by far2shy
Hi Guys

Does anyone know how to limit the username length at signup .... currently, a member can type a large username which will ruin my template .... The fix's for 1.1 don't seem to work

Thanks

Edit: added number to subject

CB 1.2 handles that natively, as username is a normal field, so maxlength can be specified ;)

Ahhh, many thanks.

The question wasn't as stupid as it sounded though, It seems on Macs (OSX) the edit username field only shows up to the size: field ... The rest does show for a few seconds when It loads but then disappears .. If I slow my internet connection right down I just get enough time to input some text in the length field ....

Thanks!

Um, I'm confused. In the CB field manager I went to change my username length to a max of 16 characters. HOWEVER, this size setting only sets the SIZE of the input box, not the length of the string within. So I set it to a size of 16 but put 25 characters in it, and CB said that username was fine.

Am I missing something?

* Jitter - status update system. "What's on your mind?"
* CB Author Plug - Shows CB author link and avatar in content items. J1.5 compatible and very customizable!

Found on my web site or in the Joomlapolis Directory !

You are both right.

- "maximum length" field shows shortly before disappearing in the backend settings

- when filled up quickly in time, it's respected

- but it doesn't show, so when you're to slow, or your computer to fast, you can't fill it in !

Filing this as a bug.
