How to disable user email validation (2 posts)

    I need to allow users to share the same email address when registering. I know there are a few reasons this is bad idea but I need to do it for my specific site.

    I tried the 'allow multiple accounts' but this does not work with the WP CRM plugin I am using so I would like to find a way to allow WP to allow the same email address to be used with multiple user accounts.

    Is this possible? Thanks

    WP uses email addresses as one of the primary identifiers of various users, so what you are trying to do is essentially not possible. However, you may be able to feed WP fictitious emails associated with users. As long as addresses have the basic email format WP will accept them.

    You could probably hide these fake emails so no one sees them, they are just used internally by WP. You should also suppress any outgoing emails so your server does not waste effort sending out unusable email addresses.
