That's probably it, but I could have sworn they pulled G+.

No, there's still a Google+ profile field, and yes, it will not accept spaces.

It's closing down in April. I didn't think anyone still used it.

The Facebook field also have that issue with space and ø

Yahoo messenger allows space and ø

Correct, Google+ is shutting down soon. They go offline in 4 of 5 months.

Yes, the validate_string_profile_field() function it seems needs to be updated.
I will file a report in the tracker.

I checked and it is correct.
By default that field is set to accept only alphanumerics.

Æ Ø Å and other special letters are alphanumerics

Ah, thanks. I thought I read they were going the way of the dodo bird. And here I had a nice username for YouTube, then when YT wasn't working I tried their G+ crap and my username went to a made up alias. No more Agent Capture like I created when YT first came to the Internet. Sad day it was when the original creators sold their soul to Google. :lol:

Jesper, why even bother trying to add your G+ username at this point? In a few months it's gone. Just like Xfire.

its not the G+ that are the problem its that you can't use charters like æ ø å in the fields, they are common in denmark and therefor it would be nice to have them working on a danish board
