Email validation rejecting plus symbol

  1. Is there a way to change the email validation so emails can contain plus (+) symbols? I know some users have + symbols in their addresses (gmail allows it).

    thanks!

    I've asked our developers about this, but I think you'd currently have to custom code your own validation for the field to get it to work, and that might not be as easy as you'd like.

    Are you taking about the User Registration add-on? The User Registration add-on doesn't allow them because WordPress doesn't allow them. Gravity Forms' e-mail field allows the plus sign without issue, according to one of our developers.
