EMail-to-Username Authentication

Introduction

Authentication, Email Authentication, Access & Security, Site Access

This extension includes two plugins that permit the use of a user's email address during login and during password reset. Use of email is optional and the username method remains valid. Action is performed only on the front end; administration interface continues to use username only.


By enabling both this plugin and the Authentication - Joomla! plugin, a user can login using EITHER their username or their email address. Additionally, lost-password requests can accept an email address as well as a username.

By enabling this plugin while the Authentication - Joomla! plugin is disabled, a user can login using ONLY their email address (plus password, of course)

Overriding the following language strings will allow you to replace "Username" with "Email Address" in login and password reset forms. This action is performed in System -> Manage -> Language Overrides.

  • COMUSERSFIELDRESETCONFIRMUSERNAMEDESC="Enter your username."
  • COMUSERSFIELDRESETCONFIRMUSERNAMELABEL="Username"
  • COMUSERSLOGIN_REMIND="Forgot your username?"
  • COMUSERSLOGINUSERNAMELABEL="Username"
  • MODLOGINVALUE_USERNAME="Username"
