This email address is already registered.

  1. Where can I change this text "This email address is already registered."

    It shows up when I use a form with the User Registration Add On.

    I want to change it to show other text

  2. Hi Jacques, currently there is no one to do this but we are reviewing the best method to support this. I will keep you posted.

  3. Hi Jacques,

    I will send you a separate email with the update version of the add-on. Here is an example of how to use the hook we added to handle this:

    add_filter("gform_user_registration_validation_message", "update_validation_msgs", 10, 2);
            function update_validation_msgs($message, $form){
    
                if($message == 'This username is already registered')
                    $message = 'We\'re sorry, this username is already registered. Try submitting with a different username.';
    
                return $message;
            }

    Thank you, but I'm not that clever when it comes to coding...I've updates the UR Plugin on my site..

    Should it automatically allow me to change the text in the Plugin or do I need to ad your above code somewhere..If so where do I ad it

  5. What you want to change can only be done with custom code. David provided a code snippet above of that custom code. You would have to place that code in your themes functions.php file and it will change the text you wanted to change in the plugin.
