WP Job Manager Registration Use Email

Allow users to login with their email, as well as use email address as username when a new user registers with WP Job Manager. Set custom label for `U

This plugin will use the email address as the username whenever someone registers through WP Job Manager. This will also work with any other plugins or themes that use the job_manager_create_account_data filter.

Change the default label "Username" for all login screens to use a customized user-defined label.

Version 1.3.0 of this plugin includes a new feature for WP Job Manager and Jobify theme that removes the "Username" field from the Registration Form Version 1.3.1 adds the ability for users to still login with their email address (in case they change their email)

The Jobify theme has been confirmed and tested to work correctly with this plugin.
