[Plugin: WP-Members] Email address format not validated! (7 posts)

    It seems that the WP-Members plugin doesn't use the WP-native "is_email()" function to check that you enter a valid email address upon registration! This is kind of important since that is where the activation is sent, and there is no 'confirm email' textbox to reduce the chances of a bad entry.

    Perhaps this is an easy fix for the next release?

    Yes, that should definitely go in the next release! (which should be soon - but is slightly delayed - just wrapping up some loose ends on some new admin features)

    That's great Chad! It really is a very useful & well written plugin.

    I've had to make quite a lot of customizations to fit my need - I'd be happy to email you a few ideas on stuff I noticed as I was poking around (little things like the <label> tags in wpmem_login_form_NEW() have the wrong "for" attribute etc). Nothing crazy - your code is doing all the heavy lifting!

    Keep up the good work. I just donated $50 toward the cause :)

    Hi,
    I have set up the WP-members plugin but I get the "You must enter a valid email address" pop out all the time when registering a new user, even though the email address is valid, i posted it here, thanks

    @joseaitamala - there's no need to add to a 5 month old thread when you've already started a new one... ;-)
