Two options:

You should read about the pros and cons of each.

Great options @adrian.

Strangely, I only asked as when login in with login() on my site it already allows either, which i thought was strange.

Something sounds wrong there - are you sure you don't have something else that is handling the email to username check? I don't see anything in the login method to handle an email: https://github.com/processwire/processwire/blob/35df716082b779de0e53a3fcf7996403c49c9f8a/wire/core/Session.php#L704 and it doesn't work for me.

@adrian Could it be that if the name and email are the same but the sanitizer is changing @ to - and thus making them equivalent?

@adrian so i'm right in saying if the name is stored as e.g. yourname-web.com

then both yourname-web.com and yourname@web.com log me in.

That makes sense for sure. When I sent you those other links, I assumed that the usernames would be different to the email address.

ok, well something to bare in mind and maybe something that needs remedying or not. @ryan?

Would be nice to know, if you can use this as a feature :-) It would make a custom front-end login with email easier (if you make sure email-address updates are reflected to the username as well).

      I have a site built with a user role 'member' that can view some extra 'member area' pages. I have a user with the role 'editor' that has been given 'user-admin' permission who can successfully generate new users. However, when they try to add / change a 'member' role password to a 'member' role they get the error:
      Unable to generate password hash Does anyone know how to assign the 'editor' role the permission to generate a password for other user types?
      Thanks!

      Having problems with the new Login/Register module and hoping someone can help.
      Desired result:
      Guest lands on site (or later specific page) and is redirected to the Login page. The user’s landing page is saved to a session and once logged-in, is redirected back to the original landing page What’s happening:
      Guest lands on any page on the site and is redirected to the Login page Guest enters credentials, hits submit, then sometimes a variety of error messages get written to the logs including sessionCSRF and MYSQL errors. Guest user is presented with the Internal Server Error. Regardless, guest is not logged in Scenario:
      Using PW 3.0.76 and PHP 5.6
      User account created manually in admin with login-register privilege User is my old mate: Username: fred Email: fred@flintstone.com Password: 1234test.
       
      Site is configured to use delayed output with Regions & Functions API In _init.php I have:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; if(!$user->isLoggedin() && $page->id!=1193) { // not for login page     $session->set('returnPage', $page->url);     $session->redirect('/login/');     die; } In login.php template:
        <?php namespace ProcessWire; if($user->isLoggedin() && !$input->get('profile') && !$input->get('logout')) {     // login and go back to the previous page or go to the home page     $goToUrl = $session->returnPage ? $session->returnPage : '/';     $session->redirect($goToUrl); } else {     // let the LoginRegister module have control     $content = $modules->get('LoginRegister')->execute(); } ?> <div id="regContent">     <div class="content-wrap">         <div class="container clearfix">             <region id="regPostContent">                 <!-- Post Content                 ============================================= -->                 <div class="postcontent nobottommargin clearfix col_three_fourth">                     <?=$content?>                  </div><!-- .postcontent end -->             </region><!--#regPostContent-->         </div>     </div> </div><!-- #content end -->  
      What am I doing wrong? Why can’t Fred login?
      Any help to resolve much appreciated.
       
      TIA

      PS: Tried to use TracyDebugger to see what was happening but got js errors. Just not my day. Uninstalled TD and no errors

      Sorry folks if this is obvious to most and I missed something in the docs or here in the forum, but, I have cheerfully used code such as:
      if($user->isLoggedin()) { echo " loggedIn"; } else { echo " notLoggedIn"; } in PW 2.x sites.
      Now on a v3 site I am finding even the most basic test to see if the viewer is logged in or `isSuperuser()` is not giving an error but simply doing nothing - not evaluating.
      For example, the top of a typical template reads:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; if($user->isLoggedin()) { echo " loggedIn"; } else { echo " notLoggedIn"; } I have `debug` turned on.
      Is there something obvious I have missed, perhaps a step required for v3 that's not required for v2 to allow access to $user data?
      Thanks for any pointers.

      I have my own register-login-profile/account page system. I know that Ryan recently released an official module for this, but there may be an advantage to having my own custom solution. Anyway, it seems to work well.
      But, I have been getting annoying Russian hack attempt accounts, mostly as 'guests' that don't bother to use the activation link.
      Most if not all of these accounts have this in the name field:
      No Subscription Detected
      Not Recognized
      ...which makes them relatively easy to filter out from real name accounts.
      Where do these "strings" come from? I can't find them in Processwire's source. Are the hackers using some kind of tool that inserts these for some reason? Or is it a PHP thing? Does anyone recognize them? Does it mean they are using some kind of backdoor instead of the registration form?
      In general, what are the best practices to secure my registration form, prevent spam accounts, etc.?
      I'll start with adding a check to block IP addresses that try to register with 'Not Recognized' etc. in the name field I guess.
