Non english characters in usernames
« on: February 06, 2006, 10:33:51 pm »

Hello!
Tell me please, can I allow users to use usernames with non English letters? Where I need to enter needed characters?
Beforehand many thanks!

yes, you can enter non-ascii chars as usernames. I don't understand the second part of your question - you enter the name using your keyboard, with encoding set to your language as well as keyboard layout. There have been issues with chinese usernames in the past though, but I don't remember what exactly happened and if/how it was fixed.

Hello!
When users in our gallery trying to register with russian usernames they got a message that username must be longer than 2 characters. I think I need to add russian characters in the the script where listed allowed characters for usernames.
Beforehand many thanks!

post a link to your page, I guess you're using an outdated version - the 2 char warning sounds familiar...

I use Coppermine 1.4.3 (stable), which I've downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=89658.
Help me please to allow users to use russian characters in usernames.
Beforehand many thanks!

You need to switch to utf8 encoding for the string length functions to work properly.

I can not switch encoding to UTF-8 because whole site with a JS-menu in WIndows-1251, if I switch to UTF-8 I got problems.
Can I solve this problem without changing encoding?
Thank you!

Sure, just rewrite Coppermine's utf_* functions to work with your encoding instead.

 - You might be able to do something if you can get the mbstring extension installed.
