    So… you CAN log into WordPress with your email address and password. On example.com/wp-login.php, 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 WordPress.org 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.
