Is there anyplace we can add regex to display name format to stop people from adding a space after their display name? If they do, Ifinity URLMaster won't 'prettify' the URL ... also, like 'firstnamespace#lastname'
Seems like you can't add regex to SiteSettings | UserAccount Settings | DisplayNameFormat
Or, Bruce, is there anything I can add to URLMaster to fix this? DNN 6.2.4

Sorry, I don't know of a way to do this.  It can't be fixed in Url Master because it doesn't control the display name.

displaynameformat "[FIRSTNAME] [LASTNAME]" will autocreate displayname, but if lastname has a trailing blank, this gets included as well.
please create an item into the public issue tracker at, to trim first name and last name prior to creating display name.
