How to Force Profile E-Mail Check?

  • wordpressfan


    I want to require registrants to enter valid e-mail addresses in their profile the same way valid e-mail addresses are checked in the other registration process. I can enter “xyzfd” in the e-mail portion of the registration and the software will catch the error and ask for a valid e-mail address. However, I can enter the same gobbledygook in the profile portion and it is merrily accepted.

    I’m concerned spammers could use this hole to create authentic-seeming accounts, but provide garbage for e-mail addresses.

    Why don’t you just pull their already-validated email address from the DB? It is stored in the wp_users table. Making them enter it twice and then running another validation on it does not make sense.



    I understand how I can view a user’s e-mail address. The point was to allow other members to contact them via e-mail or subscribe to their Twitter account or Facebook page for networking purposes.
