I'm afraid I don't really understand what the problem is. How did you go about converting the usernames, and why?

When manually registering a user account or when importing users through the XML import/export plugin, user names are converted to lower case. However, a user is not necessarily aware of this. So, if I am registering an account as "Testuser" nobody tells me that the next time I should login as "testuser". I've tried this, and logging in as "Testuser" with a capital T didn't work. That's because the PKPLoginHandler passes the UserVar "username" to Validation::login as entered. A possible workaround is to change line 120 in PKPLoginHandler to
- Code: Select all
$user = Validation::login(strtolower($request->getUserVar('username')), $request->getUserVar('password'), $reason, $request->getUserVar('remember') == null ? false : true);
