Bypass Email Requirement
First, I must mention that I know there have been other threads on this topic. However, I missed the conversation by years, and I need to reopen this discussion.
Someone mentioned that they were able to bypass the wordpress email requirement by editing register.php to make it generate a random email address, insert it into the email address field, and then use CSS to hide the field on the form. They did not mention how they did all that though!
This method of bypassing the WP email requirement would work for me because I use a plugin that disables email verification, and it leaves WP simply checking that the email address is in the the correct format, (email@example.com,) and that the email address is not currently in use.
To be more specific, I need code that would do this:
1) Generate a random email address each time register.php is loaded
2) Make sure the random email address hasn’t already been used. If so, generate another.
2) Assign signup_email to the value of the random email address
If anyone could help me with this, you would also be helping many other people who want to accomplish this. I would be glad to elaborate and share with everyone how I used your help to make this work.
