Login by Email Address???
edited February 2009 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Does anyone know of a way to modify Vanilla to allow logging in by email address instead of username? Any changes would also require the user being able to reset their password (if they forgot it) by email address as well. The reason why I'm wanting to do this is because I developed my current with having the user login with their email address. I can migrate my existing userbase over, but then I'm stuck without them knowing their username. I thought about populating the username with their email address like the Google Login extension does, but then this allows for all other members to see these users' email addresses. I really don't want to require everyone to create a new account because I have existing data from the current website that I need to tie together with their migrated accounts and the only way I can do this is if I do the migration instead of them registering a new account. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Dave
