Login via email or username

Permalink Browser Info Environment
I've seen in the c5 forum that it us possible to add some code so that a user could login using either email or username. Would this ever be possible with this add on? I love its features but this would be the ultimate addition for me.

Good question. I think you don't need to have a code inserted. You just have to go to the dashboard and set that the login credentials either be username or email. There is a knowledge base on that in Concrete5 site.

Hope that helps.

> Hi

Thanks for the feedback. What I’m after isn’t either username or email, but both username and email to be allowed. I’ve found this on a forum, and it does work (https://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/customizing_c5/login-with-username-or-email/#579014). I love working with add ons, and so wondered whether yours would ever include this kind of feature?

Hi Justyn

Yes that code could work but you have to apply it our add-on. However, we do offer paid customisation I'm guessing this take around 0.5 hours @ $90/hr.

I may well be interested in you adding it into the add on for me. How would it practically work? Would you send me the files to put into the override folders, or require access to my system?

Hi Justyn,

Sorry I didn't notice your message earlier. We will be sending you files and instructions on how you would install it. And don't worry it will be upgradeable in future releases.

That would be really helpful.

Hi Justyn,

So which email do you want us to send the invoice to so we can get started?
