Case-sensitive username?!

Hello/Hi/Greetings,

Question from a piwigo.com account user. I just started using this and found that the username seems to be case sensitive! When accessing the site from my phone, which automatically capitalizes the first letter of a username, I was unable to log in. Only when I typed the username as all lowercase was I able to log in.

This is the first time that I encounter this, on any website where I log in. I understand that Unix/Linux are case-sensitive operating systems, but most login portals seem to have gotten around this for usernames, email addresses, etc. Does anyone know if I can change some setting in my piwigo.com account to make the username NOT case sensitive?

Re: Case-sensitive username?!

I confirm username and password are case-sensitive.

I also agree it's sometimes a pain, since iphone (the only place where I have this issue) automatically starts with a capital letter.

I also know that changing this behavior is not easy because You might have a "pm125" and a "PM125" in your users list :-/
