Hello, welcome to therichpost.com. In this post, I will tell you How to Wordpress login with email only? WordPress is the best cms. WordPress hooks(add_action, add_filter) give us the power to edit or change the code without interruption into the files and this is the best thing about wordpress. Now I am going to tell you how the hooks work.
And Now Final, here is the wordpress hook to Wordpress login with email only and you need to add this hook into your wordpress theme’s functions.php file.
// login with email only
add_action( ‘wp_authenticate’, ’email_address_login’ );
function email_address_login( &$username, &$password )
$user = get_user_by( ’email’, $username );
if( !empty( $user->user_login ) )
$username = $user->user_login;
