    Is there a way to use a dictionary to restrict usernames?
    I do not our users to just register common words as usernames for multiple reasons.

    I thought I would just ask this here as my question is sort of to do with restricting usernames.

    I was wondering if there is a way to make usernames case-sensitive?

    At the moment an account with the registered username "Joe Bloggs" can still log in even if it's entered as "joe bloggs".

    I have had a look in the CP and can't seem to find anything. Am I missing something that is staring me in the face?

    Thank you :)
