    ty great plugin but if you use any kind of front end login then the text is still displayed as Username instead of Email, even though you need to still use email address to log in. as you can tell this would cause much much confusion, so how do you get the text to say Email instead of Username when you are using front end logging in?

    Hello mcpeanut, thanks for using this plugin. I am sorry, but “Smart WP Login” is intended to make “WordPress Login System” smart. Other front end login plugins work with username or any other criteria that they are programmed to work with. I have no control over other plugins. Still, if you want to use emails, then stick with WP Login system. Thanks again.

    Ok i hear you but i dont think you are grasping what i mean, i want and do use your plugin because it forces people to use emails to login like intended, thats why i am using your plugin for this purpose, however i have hidden wp-login and wp-admin for security reasons and renamed them to a secret key that only i have because i will be the only admin on my website, this means i need to let my users log in via the front end only! so i have the problem of the front-end login forms showing username text instead of email text, i realize your plugin is ‘smart’ as you just stated :), but the question is this, if its that smart why doesnt it show the text email on the frontend when wp-admin and wp-login have been changed? i am not using any other plugin to show the front end login form, wordpress automatically shows it via the front end upon clicking login if wp-login or wp-admin cannot be found!
