Getting an invalid message during signup, but email is valid

Just installed ocPortal and getting a feel for how it works.

I often take advantage of google's email alias feature to sort and label my emails. When I attempted to signup and use a plus symbol in my email I get the invalid email message. The email is valid, as I've used it often enough elsewhere. Is this "no plus in emails" a feature that can be turned off or adjusted with a simple setting or do I have to dive into code to dig it out?

We used some faulty validation code – fixes attached.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
