Joomla Email Login Plugin - Email as Username option

1 year 2 months ago - 1 year 2 months ago #128 by joomleb
Hi, 
as far as I understand your "Joomla Email Login" Plugin for Joomla 4 is the heir of " Authentication Email " Plugin for Joomla 3, Right ?

Did you added this Email as Username option ?
If not yet added, Please, Can you add it ?

Hi,
It's Joomla User Authentication (not Email Authentication). It means users can login to your site by their username or email when they registered.

Hi, 
it seems like I was not able to explain me well:

1 - " Authentication Email " is the name of the linked plugin. I asked you::

2 - "...This plugin will help you solve this topic  forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=979774  ..." = Which plugin ?!?

Hi,
I understand your solution. You want to use a trick to have joomla save the username with their email address. They can then log into the website using their email.
Here are some downsides to using this approach:
- Any customizations may be lost when upgrading Joomla.
- User's email address can be made public when a certain extension uses their username (eg comment extensions, social...).
- This method should only be used for new sites. For sites that already have members, the registration form may show a duplicate error even though the email address has not been used.
