Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

I want to give a username jonathanharris to a user on my site‏ but when i enter this user name in add new user so wordpress says that "ERROR: This username is invalid because it uses illegal characters. Please enter a valid username."
but it don't have any illegal character, also i try it on another site and other site give same error.
Same for email address. email is jonathanharris‏ and wordpress says that
ERROR: The email address isn’t correct.

I found something related on this ticket #19531 but it is very old ticket and also i enter username first time without any illegal character.

Both sites accept other usernames and email address.

@wordinvestor I couldn't able to reproduce this issue in my WordPress setup. Can you disable all the plugins and check this case? Also check for validate_username filter in your code base and plugins.

Thank you very much @dhanendran for your reply.
Yes you are right that it is not the problem of wordpress. My both sites have same theme. I just try it on 3rd site after your reply and it accept this username.
This is the problem of theme i have installed on my sites.

@wordinvestor can you share what theme you have used for your site? It can help others find this issue and theme developer can fix this issue.

It is custom theme, not available for sale to other users.
