Only email for registration/login

Only email for registration/login was created by btushar
Hi,
I want to use only the email and not the username throughout my website for the user registration/login process. I ma using the 1.2RC2 and have disbaled the joomla login.
Is my requirement configurable through community builder? I do not want the user to see the username field at all in his/her profile or during registration. What should be the approach to resolve this problem?
I understand that there might be other components/modules using the username from the user table so it would be good that in such a case, the username is automatically populated by the value of the email field when the user submits the form.
Please guide.
Regards,
Tushar

Thanks for the quick reply. I am unable to find any relevant parameter in the cb_login module for this requirement. (see attached
Please specify the exact parameter.
Attached are the screenshots of the module configuration and version.

oops - sorry,

check CB Configuration, last General tab parameter:

Login Field Type

I believe I have also updated the documentation about this.

Hi Nick,

There is one problem though.
When I set to use only email in the Configuration, the registration page still asks for the username.
I think that it also not needs to disappear automatically from the registration page and the username should be automatically populated with the email id of the user when this setting is used.

What do you think?
