Default Use E-mail address instead of username 3.5.x & 4.0

Use E-mail address instead of username for X-Cart 3.5.x & 4.0.

Let users use either their email address or username to login instead of JUST the username.

Edit include/login.php find:

Code:
$user_data = func_query_first("SELECT * FROM $sql_tbl[customers] WHERE login='$username' AND usertype='$usertype' AND status='Y'");

Change to:

Code:
$user_data=func_query_first("select * from $sql_tbl[customers] where (login='$username' or email='$username') and usertype='$usertype' and status='Y'");

Should work without troubles on 3.5.x and 4.0.x

Rock on!!

Works for me.

This should be standard. Most other places just use your email as the unique username, xcart should too.

This is a nice little mod that should be implemented into x-cart. One question , it has probably been answered before, but how would you check to see if an e-mail address already exists and stop another person from registering an identical e-mail address. I am figuring it is somewhere in include/register.php, but can't seem to locate the where and what type of code to add.

Thanks for any comments.

Go into phpMyAdmin and set the email field to "Unique" and MySQL will take care of it for you OR login to X-Cart and use the following MySQL code snippet in the Patch SQL area:

Code:
ALTER TABLE `xcart_orders` ADD UNIQUE ( `email` ); ALTER TABLE `xcart_customers` ADD UNIQUE ( `email` );

You may need to add some error catching in include/register.php but atleast noone can register the same email twice.

Slight addition which adds a checkbox to copy the e-mail field to the username field.

in skin1/check_email_script.tpl add the following code:

Code:
{* COPY E-MAIL AS USERNAME MOD *} {literal} <script language="JavaScript1.2"> var uname = ""; function InitSaveVariables(form) { uname = form.uname.value; } function copyemail(form) { if (form.copy.checked) { InitSaveVariables(form); form.uname.value = form.email.value; } else { form.uname.value = uname; } } </script> {/literal}

then in skin1/main/register_account.tpl just below the comment

Code:
{* NOT anonymous account *}

add this code:

Code:
{if $userinfo.login ne "" || ($login eq $userinfo.uname && $login ne '')} {else} <TR> <TD align="right"></TD> <TD></TD> <TD nowrap> <input type="checkbox" name="copy" onclick=javascript:copyemail(this.form);>Use E-Mail Address as Username </TD> </TR> {/if}
