External issue:



I am using the latest version of your plugin. Redmine version is 2.4.3.

If i have a username msk and if i click on http://redmine-ip/users/msk, it shows the users’ page.
However if i rename the username to krishna.ms and if i click on http://redmine-ip/users/krishna.ms the page goes blank.

But http://redmine-ip/users/124 where 124 is the userid of krishna.ms, it works.

Rename to krishna also works, but any userid which has a . between first name and last name.

Is there a way to make it work for the new user name.

Krishna M S

FYI, i tested it in Redmine 2.5.2 too and the problem is there.

Probably, it’s possible, but dot is considered to be an “unsafe” character for using in URLs in Ruby-on-Rails. So, dots should be avoided in usernames just like @ and many other characters.
