use email address to login

Post by dvdd127 »

I would like to get rid of usernames alltogether and have my users login using their email address. and have it so that whenever they post it puts their email address where their username would be.

is there a way to do this?

Buddy zone ( google it ) lets you do this. it actaully is a social networking script. it intergrates well with phpbb. so that members login with thier emails. its kind of expensive though. you'll find it at hotscripts dot com. from there you can visit the website too.
