[Fixed]-Django User model email field: how to make it mandatory


You should be able subclass the provided registration form and override properties of a field in the Meta class.

from django.contrib.auth.forms import UserCreationForm

# Not sure about the syntax on this one. Can't find the documentation.
class MyUserCreationForm(UserCreationForm):

    class Meta:
        email = {
            'required': True

# This will definitely work
class MyUserCreationForm(UserCreationForm):

    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(MyUserCreationForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)

        self.fields['email'].required = True


from django import forms
from django.contrib.auth.models import User

class MyUserForm(forms.ModelForm):

    email = forms.CharField(max_length=75, required=True)

    class Meta:

        model = User
        fields = ('username', 'email', 'password')
