    Hi,

    I have installed the plugin that enables the user to login with his email address.

    The question now is: On my homepage where you want to login ,the first column still says “username”.

    How to you change this to say “email” ? – so that the user knows that he/she must login with email address.

    Thanks a lot!!

    take a look at header.php if you are using bp1.1.3 , check bp-sn-parent/header.php if you are using bp1.2 with new default theme, look at bp-default/header.php

    The code is there, you have to make some small change .

    Make a child theme!! Don’t change the core.

    Thanks guys!

    Brajesh’s way is probably easier , but I suppose I will have to change it everytime Buddypress updates.

    So I think I will try creating a child theme. Not really that knowledgeable , but will give it a try.

    Cheers
