Commas in usernames

#1
During the test import of my database a number of usernames wouldnt import as they had commas in them. Is there a way to change the settings so when i make my final import these usernames will import successfully?

thanks

XF doesn't allow commas in usernames. They must be removed. The importer allows you to change them at the time of import. Or you can remove the commas on the source forum before importing.

Thanks Jake, Yes i replaced the commas with periods this time round, was hoping to avoid that the final time i do the import to save confusing the users affected. Not a big deal if its not possible though.

Cheers
