Works as expected

Ease of use

Very easy


Quick response from developer to my query


There isn't any documentation so rating. Would have been useful to know which constants I needed to update to say 'USERNAME or EMAIL'

I used this to: New project exploring uses of social media with kids.

Just Perfect for its purpouse

Just what I was looking for. Ad this little convenience for your users with no time.

Ease of use

It is kind of easy. For inexperienced user like I am it took 5 min. Just download. Install. Override Joomla system messages.

I used this to: My website

Users don't need to use their username with this plugin to login. If they forget their password however, they still do need to use their username to enter the verification code in the forgot password process. So it doesn't allow you to use email as username everywhere you need to.

Don't you just love it when someone develops a perfect little extension to solve a problem? That's the case with AWO Email Login! Why this has never been made part of Joomla core is beyond me. Install and enable this plugin and, voila!, your users can authenticate with their registered email address. Absolutely could NOT be easier. Don't forget to add a language override so that the login form shows "Email Address" or "Email Address / Username" instead of just "User name". Thanks to this developer!!!

Good job. Very nice idea. Makes it very easy for users if you site is new and users may not remember the username they choose on your site. Hope the developer makes more extensions and make it free if possible !

Simple but useful

It is a great plugin which should be part of Joomla core extensions. I personally do not like to use a username for login but my email which is much simpler to remember because on some site you have to use another username because your favourite one is not available

Super simple to use. Worked perfectly with Jomsocial 2.6 also and JFBC! Thanks AWO!

I was going for an other plug-in (to pay for) but than I saw this one. It is great!

The good thing is that it still sends the username and password. Thank you!

Great plugin!

I use this plugin in most of my sites that still run Joomla 1.5. It's a lot easier for users to login with their email than having to worry about usernames especially if I have to create the usernames for them.

It would be great if the developer creates one for Joomla 2.5 since I am starting to migrate my sites.

Owner's reply: 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.
