    Need to change this back, or exclude it for admin-created accounts. This throws a wrench into development- when you're setting up content and content sections to belong to different people, you usually don't have a complete user list yet, because even if you did, it would probably change before rollout. So the last thing you get is your list of users.

    So usually when you make your faux authors and editors so you can test out the restrictions and do the site demo, you use a single email set up for the purpose. As of 2.8's change, I now have to set up a different email for every single user account I set up to test a site? They're all authors, editors and contributors being created by an administrative account, so this is serving no purpose.

    Yes. I'm with dains on this. I just create users to credit post authors.

    Hi dains,

    I've just been pointed towards this plug-in:

    Register Plus

    Cheers,

    I just downloaded, installed, and activated Register Plus using WP 2.9. The two things I tried didn't work.

    1. Allow multiple users to have the same email address.
    2. Custom image.

    Is there something I've missed in getting this plugin to work? Or does it just plain not work?

    Thanks, I missed that "Compatible up to: 2.6" statement. Since Register Plus seems to not be kept up to date, is there another way to allow multiple users to have the same email address? I can't imagine this can't be done in WP by this time.
