Email Authentication, Site Access

The Code is freely available on github.

Note this project is now unsupported.

The following is from the original listing of the paid product:

Make Usernames in Joomla a thing of the past!

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!

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 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!
