# Can't add or edit or delete users with dots in their Trac username

Reported by: Owned by: jed.fonner@… tst high TracSlimTimerPlugin major users 0.10

### Description

If I try to add a new user with a dot in the username via the SlimTimer Integration > Users administration page, it truncates the text after the dot and erases the email. It also becomes impossible to edit or delete the user. And of course, it fails to integrate with Slimtimer.

I've attached a screenshot showing before and after entering a user with a Trac username that contains a dot like "john.doe".

When I try to add a user with a dot or delete or edit, I get the following error in the log:

2008-02-13 14:26:08,146 Trac[main] WARNING: 500 Internal Server Error (500 Internal Server Error (Unknown Admin Page))


I suspect there is some code that doesn't properly handle Trac usernames that contain dots.

I'm having the same problem. The corresponding data is stored in a file called users.xml in the conf directory, it seems. When adding a new user with a dot in its name it gets stored correctly, it just isn't displayed properly.

Still, integration with SlimTimer doesn't work for me, either. I haven't figured out how exactly it should work, though, and I might also have a problem with the API key not being stored as described in #3049...
