    Hi websitevala,

    To add custom fields to your registration page, you’ll need to add xprofile fields. To do so in WP Backend, you should go / BuddyPress menu / Profile fields submenu

    And for the other thing, as you noticed emails are hidden, there might be a spam risk reason to that. And as a user, i wouldn’t like to have my email shown on my profile.. So i dont think it’s a good idea.

    Ok, to set new fields for your members you should read the paragraph ‘Optional: Set Profile Fields’ of this tutorial
    http://wpmu.org/the-illustrated-guide-to-installing-and-setting-up-buddypress-1-5/

    if you mean login in with email, then you can try this interesting plugin https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-email-login/

    then you can add a function in the functions.php file of your active theme to change the label of the sidebar login form :

    add_action('bp_after_sidebar_login_form', 'bp_login_by_email_adapt_login_form');
    
    function bp_login_by_email_adapt_login_form() {
    ?>
    
    jQuery(document).ready(function($){
    usernameoremail = $("#sidebar-user-login").parent().html().replace(/Username/ig, 'Username or email' );
    $("#sidebar-user-login").parent().html(usernameoremail);
    });
    
    <?php
    }

    or if you’re using a child theme of BP-default theme, you can add/edit the template sidebar.php and replace the label for=sidebar-user-login by Username or email.

    Using the email address as username is likely to run in to problems with the profile URL. BP uses the username the form that URL.

    I think the page you are looking for is :

    \plugins\buddypress\bp-templates\bp-legacy\buddypress\members\register.php

    line 22.

    hope this helps.

    I agree, modifying a core file is bad, a template file is a little better 🙂

    Just gotta remember to keep those back ups!
