Allow Multiple Accounts
Used to work, but doesn't any more (4 posts)

    This is on a multisite install, but not turned on as a network plugin. After a complaint from a client, I tried it on my testing site, with no other non-mu plugins.

  2. Allow multiple accounts for everyone?
  3. is checked.

    I keep getting

    Duplicated username or email address.

    . I know it used to work, because I have 2 email addresses that have two users each. So either it's interacting badly with a mu-plugin or 2.0.1 broke things. I am *not* looking forward to testing against mu-plugins!

    Hi MeredithX,

    Just letting you know that I'll be investigating this issue closer shortly. I've received a similar report, but it doesn't appear to be widespread.

    This may be a result of a bug in WordPress that just got fixed in trunk (the code for the pending 3.1 release of WP). How technically capable (and willing) are you to test it out?

    The change in question isn't very much, and can be found here:

    If it's not something you are comfortable attempting, that's ok. (Be sure to make a backup of the file you are changing as a precaution.)

    I applied this change on one site and didn't get any change. I get the error message "Sorry, that email address is already used!" -which isn't the error message that is in wp-admin/includes/user.php
