First of all, sorry if this has been answered somewhere. I have looked everywhere for 2-3 hours and haven't find an answer.
I'm creating a site and some of the users will be people old enough to not have and not want an email address. I noticed an email address is needed to send a comment through Quip.
Here's where I need help. I need to either set email as not mandatory OR set a default email that points to a non-existing address on the domain.
I went through the Quip reply snippet and added some code to check if the posted field is empty and edit accordingly, but no luck.
Where should I be looking at to make this work? I thought about adding it to the template that creates the form, but I don't know if modx tolerates php in those templates and that way I don't know if I'd be destroying the ability to pull user data from those logged in to the manager back end.
Hope I'm making any sense.
Thank you Sebastian. Your way is good, if i don't need the mail field at all, but for my project i need the email field to be optional. I think it wouldn't work then with the hidden field.
Sorry, I didn't get this!
You're right, desper.
With my posted solution, users are not able to submit there e-mail-address.
