User Registration - Site Creation Name

  1. Is there a way I could use the Name / Title of a site as the username, but convert it all to lowercase, remove spaces and special characters, etc?

    I am thinking an input field with a JS value based on the previous field entry (site name) would be the only route? Display none; then on error, change display value of inline css for field.

    But do you have any other suggestions?

  2. There are probably lots of ways to do this. Can you share a URL to your form where we can see what you're accepting as input, and where you would like to store the slug?

  3. Hey Chris - havent created anything yet. Just kind of in the "what can be done" stage.

    Just trying to take a Multisite reg form, and make it much smaller and easier for a person to join

    Example:

    Name (cust)
    Site name (blogtitle)

    if i could use

    firstnamelastname for a field for Registration
    and
    sitenameblogtitle for the mu registration, that would be more simple than 4 sep fields.

    Its kind of a pipe dream, asking in case anyone else had done something similar in the past.
