Username VS spaces (and other characters)

Call me anal, but I can not stand usernames with spaces. Obviously, they're not a problem for GeekLog, but I often find my sites users can NOT remember their usernames when they use spaces. So, after much searching through the forums, I decided to put this little hack up. This one line of code tests the $username in the file users.php to make sure it doesn't have any spaces or any other nasty characters.

In users.php find this line of code on line 467:

Text Formatted Code

    if (empty ($username)) {

Replace with:

Text Formatted Code
if (empty ($username) || preg_match('~[<>&"\'=\\\]|[[:space:]]~', $username)) {

NOTE: Remember to always back up files before attempting these hacks.
