It would be great if the developer creates one for Joomla 2.5 since I am starting to migrate my sites.
Thanks for review, and for pointing out Joomla 2.5 is not listed as one of the supported versions. This has been corrected and you can now download the 2.5 version.
Thanks for the review.
Logging in by username is a joomla core plugin. This can easily disabled by logging into the admin section and going to extensions->plugins. In the 'Select Type' dropdown, select 'authentication', and then disable 'Authentication - Joomla'.
Be very careful. Make sure you have another means of logging in enabled within authentication, otherwise you could lock yourself out. Disabling 'Authentication - Joomla' disables username for both backend and frontend.
AWO Development have even created a handful of bespoke modules and components for me.
A very big Thanks to Seyi & AWO Dev
Thumbs up to the author!
I have a club website that I want people to be able to use occasionally without having to remember their usernames... and this fills that need.
It allows login using username or email address interchangeably, and has a very small footprint on the system, just install it, enable it and forget it.
