thoughtful
Is it possible to allow several users use the same email address?
My site is used by families and the kids would each like to have their own user account but don't have their own individual email addresses.
Sad
Any ideas?

Ofey

That's not easy, since the e-mail adress is also used for the lost password function. It also means hardcoding in the system files.

Would you like some Gmail invitations for your kids? I have a few hundred left....

Hi Beewee,
Thanks for the reply.
First three words of your reply is what I didn't want to hear.
"That's not easy,..."
I think hard coding is a bit beyond me.
And I have to ask, what are gmails?
Regards,
Ofey

As beewee already pointed out, it would be a bad idea to have more than one person with the same email address. Not only causes this a problem with the "forgot password" function, it also would mean that notification emails (e.g. those sent from the forum) would arrive more than once.

And Gmail is Google's free E-Mail service.

bye, Dirk

I guess they'll all just have to get their own email addresses.
Thanks,
Ofey
