Modify login widget to use email address instead of username
I’m trying to work out a way to modify the Buddypress login widget (sidebar) to accept email address as well as user name. I’ve managed to do this to the main login by adding some code to the functions.php – can anyone help me out with this please?
For the background – I’m developing a buddypress site for a charity that I work for, and although I’ve got some background in this, I’m no developer – though I always try to help myself before resorting to asking for help. The users of the site will mostly be older people, so simplicity is key and remembering usernames may just be a step too far – we really need to encourage use of the site to make our project sustainable.
Thanks in advance!
