email not required

email not required was created by leblancs
I'm trying to setup CB so that email is not required. I was instructed in the RC3 forum to upgrade to RC4, but email is still being required during registration despite my settings (please see attached image).

Suggestions?

By the way, this also happens in the frontend as well:



As you can see, the email field is not shown (based on my settings from my prior post), but it is still attempting to require an email address.

Is it a javascript error BEFORE the POST, are an error coming back from server ?

checked code, my guess is that joomla requires an email in its library... :whistle:

Apparently, Joomla made unique emails required as of 1.5:

A workaround is mentioned here:

If Joomla requires emails for all users now, maybe a similar workaround would work for this as well.

hm, this is a joomla error imho, from the joomla library.

in joomla 1.0 you could have a dummy email that you put in a "delimiter" field above as explanation for people without email.

In joomla 1.5 each user *needs* a different email :S

so i don't have a simple solution to this joomla limitation at hand... :(
