Extend Joomla! authentication to accept email as username (instead of/in addition to username). You can have both!

Users occasionally forget their usernames. Most people can remember their email address. Why must users login with their username when an email address absolutely unique? Keep your users coming back with hassle free authentication.

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)

ATTENTION: This plugin does not alter the wording of your login page or your login module. You must implement a simple output override to accomplish the login module label in my attached screenshot. The constants to override are:

  • COM_USERS_LOGIN_USERNAME_LABEL
  • COM_USERS_FIELD_RESET_CONFIRM_USERNAME_LABEL
  • MOD_LOGIN_VALUE_USERNAME

I have just upgraded to 2.4 and now have the following in my list of plugins :

(enabled) Authentication - EMail authentication email Public 10121
(disabled) Authentication - EMail system email Public 10120

Which one should be active and should I delete(uninstall) the other one ? ? ?
Thanks,

"System - Email" changes some of the Joomla forms to allow using the email address - like the forgot password form. With System - Email, you can use the email address with the lost password form.

"Authentication - Email" enables login using the email address.

Enable the functionality you want. If you don't allow the lost password functionality, you don't need the system - email plugin.
