Hi Steve,
just use the "lowercase" filter - both for insert(register) form and for validation(what user entered).

Hi Steve,
the lowercase filter is not included in form validator. It is part of app connect formatter/server data formatter, so please apply it according to where you need it - on the client or on the server side.

I added the convert to lowercase on the field and it doesn't seem to work .. for example: if a user types in I want it to be teodorkuduschiev@dmxzonecom because that is what is in the DB

But that is what i am saying - apply the lowercase formatter to the post var you are using to log users in.

I added the lowercase filter but I think it's the opposite issue .. users are putting in multi case emails in the database when they sign up and some were bulk loaded into the db as well I assume I have to apply a filter on the server side as well ? Is that the server connect data formatter?

Yes, as i explained in the first post:

Quotejust use the "lowercase" filter - both for insert(register) form and for validation(what user entered).

Add the tolowercase filter to the post in the insert record step.

In order to format server-side related data you need to have the server data formatter installed.
