That's sounds like it might be related to the 'finding a member to PM' issue I had a conversation about with AvikB a while back.

One thing i have noticed with the member search functionality is it only works correctly with lower case where the member name is in lower case. So if a member name is "Happy" then no match can be made no matter what letter case you search with, but if the member name is "happy" then it works
which member search functionality are you talking about? Is this forum related or any search on the main site?

If Steven is talking about forum PM, that issue is quite a bit tricky, can't seem to reproduce it on my local machine.
I will try to debug the issue after i upgrade the forum on my local machine to see if that only happens on the latest update or not.

the member search works fine on the test forum

If you test using your own name on this forum, it works because your usename is in lower case even though your display name is mixed case

in that case the new update might be the culprit.
I will try to reproduce the issue on my test machine to see the results.

I received an SSL error when attempting to register for the site via an https connection (best practice):

Your connection is not secure

The owner of getmusicbee.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

getmusicbee.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for the following names:

It is not a bug. Unfortunately this website does not use HTTPS/SSL. Try using plain http url and it will work fine.
Maybe in far future this website will use SSL.

As someone who defends against security attacks every day on the job, I make a plea to you that SSL happen sooner rather than later since this site handles login credentials.  It's a good bet that at least some of your users use the same password as they do on other accounts despite recommendations otherwise, so not using SSL to protect their login credentials just needlessly increases their risk profile; the consequences of a compromised shared password can be devastating.

I won't harp any further on the issue.

Thanks i do feel your concern. I am hoping in future we could use https://letsencrypt.org/ for ssl.

I am not so sure about applying https://letsencrypt.org/ on a shared hosting, as it requires shell access, and lunarpages(the hosting provider) does not provide any letsencrypt support....yet.

I don't really have any say on this, I created the website for the community but Steven is the MusicBee developer and is hosting the website. He has the final say on this.
