email login?

Hi I have a client requires a front side login with an e-mail address and not a user name.

The client makes a point that people don’t forget their email address.

Registration: He wants one input box for an email address.
Submit: Generates a password which is e-mailed.

Follow link to confirm.
Check – User name set? No – User is asked to fill out a Bio form. With compulsory user name field.

It is a simple process and I can’t disagree with him about logging in with the email address.

Is mem_self_register / ign_password_protect / mem_simple_form still the way to go for front-side registration/login?

Is it possible to use an e-mail address to login into a Textpattern set up?
Has anyone tried this?

Thanks

Re: email login?

I tested and that works!!

But i dont know if there is some limitation about the length of username that could be a problem!

Cheers

Re: email login?

Thanks Dragondz, I’m hoping to work on this next week.

It looks like it will be possible.

I noticed a new plugin … mck_login

At last!! This has been requested by so many. :-)

… and partially answered a few months ago by cbe_frontauth, without the ability to self register though (or maybe… not yet… ?). Yes, this is one of my plugins.
I have to thank you for your request (loging in with the e-mail) because it led me to add this new functionality, published today.

Re: email login?

Hi Claire,

Thanks for your plugin, I’ll check it out.
Good to know yours will now allow login using an e-mail address.

Registration too, would be great.
Your work is much appreciated.

merci,
Geoff
