    Admin login doesn't respect capital letters.

    I have a fresh install of Umbraco 7, the login name is in the following format 'userAdmin' (excluding quotes of course). So when I login to the admin I am expecting it to force the need to use the capital 'A', however I can still login simply using 'useradmin' or any other combination of capital letters for example 'uSeRaDmIn'.

    How can I force the need to respect capital letters?

    Hi Stephen

    I think you should consider filing a bug report about this at - To my knowledge there is no easy configuration tweak in the config files to change this.

    So you'll need to dig into the source code to change it - That might solve things for now but then you'll need to fix it each time you do an upgrade unless it's getting fixed in the core.

    Not sure where in the source you should look but looking at the source might help to figure it out - But keep in mind that the source is not necessarily comparable with the compiled version of Umbraco that you have installed.

    Hope this helps.
