Email address is case-sensitive in first run install setup


(Matt) #1

When using the Discourse 1-click app on DigitalOcean, and going through the initial setup over SSH, I entered my email address like I do everywhere:

MyEmail@example.com

Then I signed up the first account using the exact same characters:

MyEmail@example.com

I was surprised when, after activating the account, I had no access to the admin panel.

Starting over and entering this as my email:

myemail@example.com

worked. Perhaps email address should not be a case-sensitive comparison. See prior issue


First account has no access to admin panel

Aha, if that’s a bug we should fix it cc: @sam.

This would be specific to first signup, as emails are NOT case sensitive everywhere else.
