Customer registration just with e-mail address
« on: December 19, 2017, 14:18:01 pm »
Hi!

I found this interesting article:
https://electrodrome.net/joomla-registrierung-nur-mit-benutzername-pseudonym-und-eingabefelder-reduzieren/
Actually this is not exactly what I want to achieve and I do not want to "hack" Joomla.
So, how can I configure/extend VM to enable customers for registering with their e-mail address and a password, only?

Kind regards,
Gerald

You have some plugin that can copy  email as username, you only have to rename username Joomla Key, no need to hack Joomla.
See for eg : https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/authentication-email/
The problem is after to do same with Virtuemart.

You can also use https://extensions.virtuemart.net/all-tutorials/19-shopper-fields-plugins/29-automated-numbers

Hi!

I have bought this plugin now.

How can I achieve the following:
When the user registers, he just fills in the e-mail address and a password.
The plugin automatically fills in the e-mail address as user name.

What I tried, you can see in the screenshot attached.
But the user name and the name fields stay empty.

Thank you very much in advance for your help!

Kind regards,
Gerald

Hi!

Now I have it:
1. I configured the plugin a bit differently (see attached screenshot), to avoid resulting in texts like "Hello example@mail.com!".
2. I unpublished the shopper fields 'username' and 'name' and set them to 'not required'.
3. I created a language overrides for displaying reasonable label descriptions in the frontend.

And voilĂ :
The user can register without filling in the fields 'username' and 'name'!
And he can login with his e-mail address, as the plugin used it as username, too.

Thank you all for all your hints!

Kind regards,
Gerald
