Wordpress Email Log in - Allow users to log in with email addresses

Wordpress by default allow users to log in with USERNAME only. It can create lots of problem for some membership sites.

Generally visitors forget their usernames / passwords after registration and they keep on trying creating new usernames or retrieving their passwords.

Why not give your users a little bit more freedom. Lets allows the users to log in with EMAIL ADDRESS also. Your user should be able to log in with email address as well as username also.

This plugin does this exactly. It allows your users to log in with both ( email address and username ). Your users can use any of these two.

It will increase the probability of users to log in to your website.


1. Download the wp-email-log-in plugin and extract the "wp-email-log-in" folder.
2. Upload wp-email-log-in` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
3. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
4. That's it. There is no further options page.
