The e-commerce.

user name not an email address


Recommended Posts

I know it's been attempted as I saw it posted on an outside osC forum. I don't how much editing you'd have to do but in theory ...


1- Create a new field in customer table for 'username'

2- Change text on login fields to 'Username'

3- Change code for login to check username instead of email address

4- Add code in create_account to prevent the creation of duplicate usernames


IMHO, it's better for a store to use email addresses as it's less likely that someone will forget that.
