Can you force email to be username for new accounts?

Asked by jsherk on 2011-01-17

I know that you can login with either your username or email address, but I want to eliminate the username for new users, so that they are only required to enter an email and password (no username) so they will never have or need a username.

Thanks

This is pretty much hard coded, however there is a solution if this is a must. What you do is simply copy the logins page, controller, model and view to your plugin, create a new menu item for it giving it your own name. Now in the General Settings page change the login page to your copied custom login page.

Now you can change your custom login page to your requirements.

Ok, so this would be a good feature request for a future version, to make it an option somewhere without having to copy logins page.

Thanks
