    I am interested in this plugin, but one thing seems odd to me. Your documentation places a lot of emphasis on the signup’s name. Why don’t you index by email address and use the built-in wp capability of verifying email. That way you don’t have to care about how they spell or misspell the name.

      Thanks for your thoughts! I debated this issue quite a bit, but ultimately I wanted to make the barriers to class registration as low as possible. I didn’t want users to need to create an account in order to register for a class. Since people use a variety of email addresses, phone numbers, etc — it’s difficult to unique identify a user without forcing them to create an account. So instead of making users do extra work, I put the responsibility on the staff that takes the registration. It’s a bit more work for the staff, but I think it makes it easier on the users who are registering.
