Allow use of email addresses associated with user accounts without signing in?

This might be kind of a weird one, so bare with me.

I’ve got a site built with custom membership functionality. There are hundreds of users, and some of those users may be from the same organizations. The site also offers paid events through Event Espresso. Typically, an organizations manager will need to go in and buy tickets for everyone they want to attend an event. They’re running in to an issue where if one of the attendees has an account created, they can’t purchase a ticket for that attendee because they’re not signed in.

So my question is: Is there a way to disable the validation that checks if an attendees email address is associated to a user?

Hi Andy,

There is, and it involves added a tiny code snippet to your site. Along with that, you’ll likely want to disable the User sync option in Event Espresso > Registration Forms > WP User Integration.

You can disable the user traffic cop feature by adding the following code to your site:

You can add the above to a functions plugin or into your WordPress theme’s functions.php file.
