what exactly isn't working?

when I enter a username and click submit I see this warning (on my local installation):

Warning: preg_match(): Unknown modifier '0' in PATH_TO_BWROX/htdocs/bw/lib/FunctionsTools.php on line 332 

So it seems to be the same issue as we have seen with the pagination. Or it has to do with the change to the utf usernames, e.g. when the link is created with the username in line 492 of that FunctionsTools?.php.

When i use it on the live site with my username matthias

i see:

Sorry no valid email for

On alpha i see additionally the same warning as above

i wonder if we can just use this instead of preg_match() in bw/lib/FunctionsTools.php

if(filter_var($email,FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL) === false)
   return (false);
   return (true);

Another one of my PHP 5.3 fixes gone wrong. :( There were just too many of these to never overlook anything. The problem are the unescaped slashes in the regexp. However, the regexp is no good (it should really be the one shown at ). So, I'll implement what globetrotter_tt suggested and use the PHP filter trusting that it implements the RFC well.

Hotfix (90d3671) is checked in and master deployed. My tests look good but maybe someone else could confirm and close.

I reviewed my PHP 5.3 patch and found another regexp problem in htdocs/bw/layout/admingrep.php which I fixed along with this even though I'm not sure if that code is still used.

I have tested the fix on alpha and production and confirm that it works. Thanks for the quick reaction :)

Oh and of course we should finally write a new password retrieval page. We still use /bw code for this.
