[resolved] Cannot login using email, only using username (3 posts)

    I did notice only today that I am unable to login into various sites, installed by various people (so not just my sites), using the email.

    I can login into all of them using the username. We tried several users, and username and passoword do not fail.

    But it is not possible to login using email and password.

    We tried to create some new users, manually or via import (Import via CSV plugin), and again, the username works, the email cannot login.

    Does that happen to others?

    This is the normal behavior of WordPress, but it can be changed by adding a plugin to the site. Search the plugin repository for "email login."

    That's funny. I've never realized that before (never used the email to login, in fact).
