vB Version: 3.5.0 RC3 Rating: (1 vote - 4.00 average) Installs: 41
Released: 24 Sep 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 169
Not Supported Code Changes  

This code modification was made as part of a request in this thread: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...5&page=1&pp=15

All that it does is allow to use the email address instead of the username to be used to login (username also still works).

Since people where stating that it should be released, well here it goes.

1 File edit:
in file includes/functions_login.php, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace by:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This will allow logging in with either mail or username.

good idea, anyway, this is only a if statement to add, so it's not complicated to enhance if needed (like register by email only...)

email only would even be easier, just replace 1 word in the original file.

Wow, this is awesome.. except I won't be using it, maybe later. I like the concept and idea, it can be like a passport system if you integrate it into many sites.

How you mean? Log what about a userid?

This is a simple code mod that make it possible to login with email address, there is no logging involved in this, and there won't be also.

i think he was referring to login via with our userid indead of email or username... this becomes a little useless here... who remembers their userid better than their username?!

Lol, well logging in with userid could be done the same way, but it won't be easier to remember.

I was doing some playing around with this hack and something that I noticed was that if you have more than one user name assigned to the same email address it cannot tell which one to login as and it logs you in on the first one in the user id list.

Other than that it seems to work fine.

Thank you for taking the time to create this hack Marco, Im still undecided as of right now though If ill be using this hack or not.

Doug

Well that would make sense. I don't think this is the right hack if you allow multiple users (although they are probably all the same person) to share 1 mail address.

Maybe instead of:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

...you could do this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


I did it on ours, and at least it prevents a shared email address from logging into any of them. Of course, I don't have any feedback to the user, cuz I don't know how...
