Template ID contains disallowed characters


Loving v3! But since updating, I'm seeing a few errors at the top of some admin pages. "Template ID contains disallowed characters" and it seems to be highlighting templates that have an hyphen in the name. Are hyphens no longer allowed? Worth noting, everything still appears to be working though.

Hyphens have never been allowed. We now warn about it to prevent it happening with new templates.

I think we'll look into a way of dismissing the message for older templates that have been happily incorrect for a while.

Thanks Drew.

Must have missed that, and as they work, never spotted it as an issue before.

I'll make a note and update old templates where I still can and obviously not use hyphens moving forward! :)

Dismissing the message for older templates would be a good addon, yes :)

Yes, dismissing the message would be nice to have.
