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!

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!
