Cannot Add User Because Email Address Already Exists

Post by bumpyroad » Wed Jul 11, 2018 9:56 pm

I have tried to add a new user through Users/ACP Add User but it came back with "Cannot Add User Because Email Address Already Exists". However, when I search Manage Users/Find A Member and I put the email address only in the Email field nothing shows up. How can I find and edit that user or delete it so I can use the email address?

Thank You

Contact the author of that extension, because as far as I know, there's no option in phpBB to add new users though the ACP.

Or go to ACP => General => User registration settings =>
Allow email address re-use:
Different users can register with the same email address.
=> set to yes
Sorry! My English is bat ;) !!!
