disable duplicate email address checking

Author John Dobson

in my forum, it is possible for two users to have the same email address (because they share the same job, which is quite common). How do I stop the duplicate email address checking on user registration? Is there a php line I can comment out?

It's a very unwanted action when in our system you will have duplicated email addresses. Specially if you have enabled email notifications on board.

However it's still possible to disable... In bb_func_regusr.php try to remove the part of the condition which says

and !db_simpleSelect(0,$Tu,$dbUserId,$caseComp."({$dbUserSheme['user_email'][1]})",'=',strtolower(${$dbUserSheme['user_email '][2]}))

In bb_func_editprf.php try to remove the code which says

if ($rowp=db_simpleSelect(0,$Tu,$dbUserId,$caseComp."({$dbUserSheme['user_email'][1]})",'=',strtolower(${$dbUserSheme['user _email'][1]}),'','',$dbUserId,'!=',$user_id) or (strtolower(${$dbUserSheme['user_email'][1]})==strtolower($admin_email) and $user_id!=1)) $correct=4;
