    I have searched absolutely everywhere, to no avail.

    I'm simply looking for a Wordpress plugin that allows a user to register using only his username and password, no email address.

    Long story short, the members of the site I'm working on will be people who are part of a training academy. They will be accessing the site via their limited mobile phones. Not all of them have email addresses and hardly any of them will create one or know how. Anyone from South Africa will know what I'm talking about.

    So Full name, Username, Password. Nothing more. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Hmmm I think you'll find this tough as it will need to edit the WP core files due to the fact that it is a basic requirement to sign up with WP as standard. How about giving them a simple email designation such as username@mail.com and seeing if WP will allow them to sign up like that - technically that will work as it doesn't need to verify the email to work.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Bluefrog, I decided to work on a similar method to what you suggested.

    Though, I will just generate the emails randomly in a hidden field of a custom registration template. I'll share the code here when I'm done if anyone needs it.

    It will assign users a random string that looks like an email address, but will allow them to register simply with a username and password.

    You can override their sign up form and create your own ... just make sure you have all email notifications turned off that wordpress might try to use... anything like that would be in the cp
