I've Googled this and can't seem to find an answer. Does anyone know if there is a way to modify the admin area so that a user cannot modify the email address in his or her profile?
I have a client that assigns addresses to different help desk employees but if an emaployee is fired, the owner / admin doesn't want the ex-employee to be able to retrieve an updated password.
I have tried to set the email field to disabled but then when you save the updated profile, WP prompts you for an email address even though there is already one on the field.
I know I can also disable the retrieve password fieled as well but I'd prefer to just disable the ability for a user to change his / her email address in that field.
I assume perhaps there is a hack similar to the code used to disallow a user to change his / her password but I can't find a solution anywhere to prevent the user from modifying his / her email address.
