Not a Bug Punctuation marks in usernames

    Problem with usernames with punctuation marks.

    Example:

    Username: Ronaldo & Bowie

    When I'am trying search to find all threads by Ronaldo & Bowie
    I get the following error: The following members could not be found: Ronaldo.

    Anywhere that uses AutoComplete expects you to provide the full username.

    Presumably you do not have a user called Ronaldo.

    If you enter their full username does it work?

    Yes, when I fill in the full name, it works. Maybe this addon is the bottleneck ;)

    Yes, seems to be add-on related.

    Anything I try locally with the same name works:

    You can search for that member, select their name, and search for their content.

    Thank you for your explanation Chris, it is actually occurring, on the profile page

    Just tested that too, that's all working ok. So it doesn't seem to be a bug. I assume it works if you disable that add-on?

    Yes, when I disabled that addon, it works good within both languages.
    It's almost certainly a bug in the addon, not in XF 1.3
    Thank you for your advice :)
