If you read our posts you have probably knows that we build and maintain few paid membership websites.
One think that encounter many times is the WordPress regular profile page allow the user to change their email address. In regular scenario this of course should be a problem in fact is it a good thing but in some cases when you are managing a website and you are using the user email and an identification you don’t want that the email address could be change by the user.
We didn’t find any solution for this in WordPress plugin directory so we had to come with a solution of our own.
The problem begin that without changing the WordPress core files you can change the behavior of WordPress and hide the email field.
So we have decided to use a simple jQuery function that will disable the email field change.
We have wrapped the code into a plugin that is now available to download for free from the WordPress directory.
If you want use the code in your plugin you are free to so, you find in: [Coding] Prevent Email Change
Because administrator use a different URL for editing profiles they able change the email address without any problem.
We are going to release a pro version for this product soon with more features [coming soon]
