This extension really delivers what it promises.
I had some problems with my template, the developer was very helpful with getting the email solution work throughout the website. Everything was fixed in short time. And he documented what changes to do where.
Recommended for all those who wants email registration instead of username.

I have ordered this product to let users sign in with their email address instead of using an username. The support is really helpful: I have different custom pages and the support desk is willing to help me very good.

A great extension to easily allow users to login with email address instead of username. Works well with Jomsocial. Had an issue with my template and the support was great and fast. Will definitely use on other client sites.

I've tried/paid for many login options.

This one works and is not buggy like so many others.

I'm relatively new to Joomla, but I knew right away that I wanted to remove the Username from the login process because Email is so much easier/better. This Extension was easy to install, and when I ran into a bug using a pop-up login module (instead of the default Login), Dylan couldn't have been more helpful, attentive, or timely. He actually created a new version of the Plug-In and even wrote a specific Language Override file.

The Registration & Login process is so much easier now that there is no Username. Email As Username is well worth the $$$$.....highly recommended! Thanks Dylan!

Because I use this plugin with VirtueMart, this is a must! Does what is supposed to - lets You use a email as username. So simple and so good.

But the BEST thing is the support! I use a Gavick template and a custom Gavick mod_gk_register popup. Dylan took all the info he needed and gave me a solution THE NEXT DAY! Remember, this is a simple plugin (does not cost a lot). But he was willing to learn my template and make the code changes!!! The solution was a simple copy-paste a file with FTP.

The best - nothing else to say!

I am a relative newbie in the coding world and Joomla. the site I am working on has kunena, jomsocial with a Zen cart shopping cart. Found this extension as part of the solution for a single sign on. Zen Cart eCommerce won't accept username. And so enters Emailasusername. A really easy installation, simple instructions in the documentation area. Everything worked as promised.

Ran into some early minor issues that Dylan responded to and corrected immediately. One of them was that the customized styling for my Jomsocial frontpage was a little "wonky" when the plugin was enabled. Dylan requested the information he needed (mind you all the support he provided was after normal business hours on his end.) and when I opened my email this morning - the solution was in my inbox.

Highly recommend this extension. Next step is jFusion for dual login.

Thanks again Dylan!

Want to make it easy for users to register at my Joomla site and this extension allows login into Joomla with eMail address.
This increases the number of registrations on my site.
email as username works fine with standard joomla articles and it works with EasyBlog from Stackideas. This was wanted to start a "login to read more" functionality.

During the installation I needed a helping hand and the support from lunarhotel staff and Dylan was very fast and got it up and running in record time.

Recommend both the product and the support!

Deserves 6 stars!

I think the plugin is good but not sure if it supports kunena and hwdvideoshare aswell as i think the price is very high for just one plugin would be understandable if it was a component but its only a 1 php script that makes it a plugin should reconsider the pricing.

I buy a lot of extension but never take the time to review them. This was by far the best extension I have bought to date.. many people sell stuff on here and never support it.

Had some problems with layout and getting things to work right Dylan went above and beyond even rewrote some files for me to make everything work.

what was better it wasn't days it was hours and stuck with me responding immediately till all was up and running.

truly top notch highly recommend this extension

I had an issue with my installation and made a post on the forum. From then on I experienced professional assistance, which I wish all companies would have. The author looked into my particular problem and corrected it within hours. Honestly, great product and even better support.

Hope he will develop other plugins as well :D

Like the title says - you have got to use this addon. Make your registration, and future login much easier for potential customer. I have no doubt in my mind that this extension has helped my website generate £££s from returning customers.

There is nothing more frustrating than having problems logging into any website.

I've been using this extension for a couple of years now and it works like a dream. We have just upgraded to the latest version, and there were a few changes - but everything still works perfectly.

Very quick and easy to setup. Customer support if fantastic. Very speedy responses that answers your questions, and fixes any issues.

I couldn't imagine having my website without this now !!!!!

I tried this extension in some different configurations. Now i'm using it on a joomla 1.5.25 with Virtuemart for an e-commerce site. All work perfectly together. It requires some more work to do with language files, but the support is fast and exellent! The language files may be managed for correct infos to those who register into the site (using email instead of username) in email sent for registration by joomla! or its components. Nice price and exellent help from developer.

Just what I'm looking for. In the beginning a little problem but the developer, Dylan, helps me great and very fast. It's working now excellent.

Forgotten Username has been a sever problem for our institute. Since we started using "EmailAsUsername" it has reduced our technical support on Forgotten Usernames by 22%. Their support is one of the best in Joomla!

The plugin works great. It totally makes registering quicker so new users spend less time registering and dive right into the website. Best of all no username to remember. Think about it, how many usernames do you have?
You may have to do a little tweaking to get this working with a custom template. But, that's easily done and information to do so can be found on the developers website. Speaking of the developer, he's a great guy. Responds quickly and never leaves you hanging.

I highly recommend this plugin. He's even offering a money back guarantee. So what do you have to loose?
