    Problem with Umbraco Member Section

    Hi,

    When I am creating a new member in Umbraco v 4.0.2.1 backend and the name not the username exists, it throws error page "Duplicate User name! A member with the user name **** already exists".

    Can I know why is this happening and how can this be solved.

    Thanks in advance

    How are you creating a member?

    What does the stack trace to the error look like?

    Hi,

    What I am doing is right clicking on the members > Create and add the name as my name and my email and other details. Now what I am doing is adding a new member with my name and it's giving the below error:

    Server Error in '/' Application.
    Duplicate User name! A member with the user name ****** already exists.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Sachin

    As far is I know it's because you can't have two members with the same name, as the error message also indicates. So to avoid this you'll have to make sure that your members have completely unique names.

    I agree that this message is not ideal and definentley not user-friendly. One should be prompted that it's not possible to create another user with the same name, instead of getting af YSOD. Maybe this suggestion should be reported on codeplex?

    Hope the answer is of any use.
