[Plugin: Login Email Sync] Process Doesn't work correctly with Social Login

  • I have been able to do further testing and prove this issue is strictly with the “Login Email Sync” plugin.

    As best as I can tell, this plugin, is supposed to allow a person to log in with either username or email address.

    However, I’m finding, through a specific process, this plugin completely replaces the username with an email address.

    If you create a user account with a username, email address and password, you can use both username and email address to log in. However if a person goes to their user profile and clicks the “Save” button, the username is essentially overwritten with the email address and logging in with the username is no longer possible.

    This is dangerous, especially if you disable this plugin and do not want to use email login any longer. Any accounts where the username has been replaced by the email address, no longer have access to log in.

    Okay, so I figured out what is going on.

    I have the “WP Email Login” plugin installed and was trying out the “Social Login” plugin. When I tried to make a change to my profile to allow logging in with several social networks, the profile got saved. When the profile was saved again, my username was replaced with my email address.

    I would like people to be able to use their email as their username, if they choose to do so. I also want people to be able to log in with their username and/or email address. However, I do not want their username replaced with their email address without them explicitly choosing to do so.

    So, it doesn’t seem that this plugin is what I want at all, but it does seem to work exactly the way it was designed. For that, I have changed my start rating to 5 and my vote from broken to works.

    Thanks
