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 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 says on the tin. Follow the install steps and say goodbye username field!

Ease of use

Very easy to use, just follow the simple install steps and it should work right out of the box.


We had a small issue when setting up the extension with our HikaShop build, but Dylan was very helpful and had the issue resolved in a day.

Value for money

It's not the cheapest extension you will come across, but it's so good at what it does that I don't think it matters.

I used this to: We are using this extension for a clients new e-commerce store built on HikaShop.

A must-have extension

It does exactly what it should, it "deletes" the username field and uses email address instead

Ease of use

Very easy to get it up and running, it creates back-up of the modified files so you can roll back easily in case something goes wrong.


The support is excellent! I had a small layout issue because of the template I use for VirtueMart, the dev solved it in a couple of hours!


Very good documentation provided.

Value for money

Great value, saves a lot of time for site-owners and users by eliminating the username field.

I used this to: I am using it on several webshops, it is one of my must have extensions on every project! Highly recommend it!


Works as a charm

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

Posted on 24 June 2014

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.

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
