Re: Allow reuse of username

I don't know how often the core uses just usernames to get user data, but surely extensions will. You can't get users by their username anymore. Don't know to wich problems this may lead. You can try, of course, but I would be cautious with it. Just a random idea. What about adding something to the...

Re: Login with e-mail instead of username

Add instructions telling them to use their email address as their username at registration? I have thought about this but then I would have to modify the entire forum to view the username. Basically you want this mod ported to an extension: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/prime_login_via_ema...

Re: Allow reuse of username

I have thought of this solution and it is not a bad suggestion. I see three problems: 1. Email validation will not work as intended 2. Email field needs to be populated on registration 3. Username is used literally everywhere. Member search needs to be changed etc. My guess is that it would be easie...

Re: Allow reuse of username

The board is not live yet so there are no users, for this reason there is no old username. Or do I understand you wrong? Do you mean when there is an existing user and a new one tries to register with the same name (and therefore username)? If that is the case this is the problem I need to solve. Th...

Allow reuse of username

Hi, I wonder if someone knows a way to modify my phpbb 3.1.1 board to allow the reuse of usernames (like the reuse feature in ACP for e-mail, which will not be used for obvious reasons)? I will use the username field for "First name Last name" eg. "John Doe". For this reason I want to allow the same...

Login with e-mail instead of username

Hi,

I want users to log in with e-mail instead of username. Can someone instruct me how to modify my phpbb 3.1.1 board to achieve this? For obvious reasons I will not allow reuse of e-mail.

Thank you!

Re: [BETA] Advanced BBCode Box 3.1

Looks great, is there a planned release date for this extension? If not, do you have a rough guess how much time is left until it is released?

Re: Automated user group and activate user

Thank you for your input! I did not know that users should remain in the registered user group even if they belong to another groups. Is it because one should be able to change permissions for all users at once or why is that? The method you suggest will unfortunately not work for me in this case (t...

Automated user group and activate user

Hi, I am currently creating my first forum using phpBB 3.1.1 and I am facing some difficulties. I have the need for the users to choose which user-group they should belong to when they register. When they have performed this, a verification needs to be performed by me before they are accepted (stand...
