  • Signing into the VBulletin forums with username OR email

    Maybe I am the only one who is experiencing this issue.

    I log into the Client Area with my email or my member id. Works great.

    My chrome tries to automatically log me into the VBulletin forums when I load them WITH my email, and my dumbself always clicks ok. I get rejected and get a warning about 1 out of 5 failed login attempts.

    So I change my username from my email to my username. Then I proceed to login just fine.

    Can we enable it so you can sign into the Vbulletin forums via your email address or username?

    The forums use a separate database from the Customer database. We don't allow signing in by email address on the forums at this time. You must use your Forum User Name.

    Will look into allowing both email and username in the future.

      Thanks bud. I just figured it would be neat. All my other proprietary forum software licenses allow this figured it would be more convenient here too. Keep up the good work
