Email Authentication, Site Access

Facebook does it, Amazon does it! Popular sites do not ask for a username. With EmailAsUsername, you can make usernames a thing of the past!

  • Get this

Make Usernames in Joomla a thing of the past!

Users abandon forms when unnecessary information is requested. A recent study conducted showed that reducing the number of fields in form can DRASTICALLY improve conversions

Less fields means more registrations, conversions, sign ups...!

Without core hacks, EmailAsUsername removes the username field from the registration and checkout pages of Joomla!, Virtuemart, JomSocial and many other popular extensions.

Users can then login with their email address and password as normal!

But That's Not All!

Whats more, EmailAsUsername will now remove the “Display Name” field from the Virtuemart checkout page, increasing checkouts even more!

Does exactly what it needs to do :)

Ease of use

Very easy to install


Fantastic support



Value for money

A must have

I used this to: We use this for all of our websites :)

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.

Works like a charm!

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.

Great plugin

Does what it promises! Easy installation and great result if you prefer an email based login.

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.

Great Support

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!

So good, it hurts

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!

Testimonial Rotator

Lunarhotel Testimonial Rotator is a Joomla!™ Module port of Sebastian Nitu's Quovolver jQuery based solution. Ive exposed most (but not all) of Sebastian's original functionality, and added some of my own, which don't affect Sebastian's code at all. Quote rotators are a great way to show off any reviews or comments you might have had. In addition, the transition between each quote draws the users eye to the content. Its perfect for pages where you want to give users confidence indicators. When I looked in the Joomla!™ extensions directory for a testimonial rotator I couldn't find one that met my needs. Some come with bulky components which is beyond my requirement, while others are just too simple and don't have enough "slots" to place additional quotes. This one attempts to remedy these drawbacks, and others: There are 15 slots available for testimonials / quotes. This may seem like a lot, but.... There is a randomisation option which when enabled will randomise the order the quotes are displayed in. This results in your users seeing more quotes as they navigate your site! There is a field to optionally place the quote author You can set the timings of how long the quotes are displayed, and time taken for the transition (this is a feature of Sebastian's code) In conjunction with the randomise option, you can choose to only display one random quote per page load. Ideal when you you want the user to concentrate on completing a process. (e.g. Filling out a form or completing a purchase.) but don't want them distracted by animation occurring on the page
