    Upcoming Feature

    In the vBulletin 5.2.1 Beta, we're happy to introduce the ability to log in via email address. This optional feature will allow your users to log in via email address. This provides a small amount of security for your vBulletin site and end users as their log in credentials would never be shown on the screen. You can turn this feature on in the Admin Control Panel (AdminCP) under Settings -> Options -> General Settings.

    There are three options in this setting:
    • Log in via Username Only
    • Log in via Email Only
    • Log in via Username or Email
    Phrases on the log in screens and within error messages will adjust to reflect your setting.

    What if I allow multiple users with the same email address?
    Unfortunately, the system will not allow email log in if there are multiple users with the same email address. vBulletin wouldn't know which user to validate against. If you have multiple users with the same email address, an error message will display stating there are multiple users with the same email address. In order to enable this functionality, those users would need unique email addresses.

    You can see a list of all emails with multiple users by clicking the link in the error message or going to Users -> Search For Users -> Look For Duplicate Emails. This will list the emails and how many users are sharing it. You can click on the links to drill down. Those users would need to update their email address.

    You can turn off the ability for users to share an email in the AdminCP under Settings -> Options -> User Registration Options. Set the option 'Require Unique Email Addresses' to Yes. This is enabled by default so if you haven't changed the setting, you're good to go.

    Creating Users in the AdminCP
    Prior to the 5.2.1 beta, you could create new users in the AdminCP and not enter an email address. This functionality has been updated to require an email address.
