Can this addon allow you to make Email Optional? If not why? Because i really do not want to turn new users off with request for email. People are reluctant to give their email especially to relatively unknown/new forums like min.

I have removed email verification and added reCaptcha to protect me from spammers but i still want to make email field optional.

Hi @synergy,

There is no way to disable the email field. wpForo is based on WordPress user registration system. WordPress doesn't allow create users without emails. Emails are required, without emails people can't reset passwords if they have forgotten, and they can't subscribe to new topics and posts. So even the user Custom Fields addon can't help you because all those are WordPress plugins and WordPress requires email fields.

This option is located in WordPress settings, navigate to Dashboard > Settings > Discussions and find the "Default Avatar" option. You may see your custom avatar on front of all options, but just ignore it and choose the  Identicon (Generated) one.
