Login by Email ONLY v0.5

  • After Disabling username-password checker and site access now its working well with 1.7.1 but still getting problem to send request for lost password. For lost password it says user name not found.

    Second thing please tell me how can i use this with mobile version of my site because it is still using user name .

    Thanks for this gr8 plugin.

  • I just added a new release that fixes the error with lost password. This was the result of 2 errors. Thanks for the great catch.


    I'm not supporting a mobile version of this plugin at this time. However, I assume you're using "Elgg Mobile" ... maybe I'll add the views into this module at some point.

    to change the label go to mod/mobile/views/account/forms/login.php

    find "elgg_echo('username')"

    and replace it with "elgg_echo('email')"

    I haven't tested that the login and everything works with the mobile version, but it should as Elgg Mobile only overrides views and not actions.


    you will also want to go into


    and remove (or comment out) this line...

    $form_body .= "<label>" . elgg_echo('username') . "<br />" . elgg_view('input/text' , array('internalname' => 'username', 'class' => "register-textarea", 'value' => $username)) . "</label><br />";
