Modify login widget to use email address instead of username

  • So… you CAN log into WordPress with your email address and password. On, it even says “Username or Email” and “Password”. Is this the main log in that you are talking about?

    I have just tested the BuddyPress log in widget and I can log in using the email address.

    I am a bit baffled why this doesn’t work for you. Please can you remove any relevant code customisations, and just test it again?

    If you can’t log into /wp-login.php using an email address and password, you should try the support forums first and get that fixed, because that’s how it should be working.



    Paul – I just wanted to thank you for taking the time and solving my problem – I removed the customisation that I’d done to the functions.php file to allow an email login (I think I did this before WordPress allowed such a thing – or maybe I was mistaken) and now the widget works. There was obviously some conflict.

    Thank you so much – it’s quite hard work pushing our users (older people) to do things online, so really need it to be as simple and user friendly as possible.

    🙂 Good luck with your project!
