    Moodle: User registration

    I need help please! Come on all you moodley-dudes

    I'm sure I have asked before but I can't find it so here goes again:

    We have two years of students on moodle put on using email addresses.

    We now want to upload the other two years BUT we don't have any more email addresses.

    We have tried doing it manally using a 'spare' email address but it won't let you use it more than once.
    We have tried bulk upload and it seems to work but the students cant get passed the registration page or get on to any of the courses.

    Everyone seems to say that you can have different forms of registration but we just cant do it.

    Please can someone help?

    (no, we cant get any other email addys for the children - hotmail etc all blocked)

    I think I posted in another thread of yours with a similar question.
    Is there any reason you can't / don't want to use LDAP authentication? (Assuming each child has their own username?)

    Following the instructions, I can see 'LDAP support enabled' but I don't think the IP address specified is right. We only have one server (2008) so I am unsure of where to look. I don't know if the rest of the authentication is done and I am unsure of the type of user I need to create or how - I have read the instructions but I'm afraid they don't make a lot of sense.

    Whatever we do, it seems to want an email address, is this because my boss uploaded the first two years using an email address?

    What the CLEO Moodle Tool Thingy does is set the emails tousername@cleo.void.net.uk and disable mail. Is this an option?

    Isn't that something to do with SIMS? If it is, no good to me as I am on a separate network and have no access to SIMS at all

    Where?

    We have tried disabling the email address everywhere we could find it appears but it doesnt work. It LOOKS OK but the users keep getting the profile page and cannot get on to any of the courses


    tested this with individual user as well- disabled email - looks OK but doesnt let them in properly

    okay - I can do this fine (in a csv import) but then I've only done this for authenication set to manual (or radius)

    the other suggestion is that on the import page, you can tell it to not check for unique email addresses, so you could use your spare email address

    Just to update: issue solved (we hope!)

    When new users are initially loaded into Active Directory, we fill in the email field with username@school.local. As long as this is done BEFORE the student ever tries to log in to moodle, then it seems to work OK even though the email does not exist
