So I installed your extension and i renamed Username label to Mobile Number. for validation I set 1)Input Validation : Digits only 2)max no. : 11 3)min no. :10 Upto this everything is fine but sir problem is validation text displaying like: "Username" length must be equal or greater than 10 characters. But instead of Username I want to show "Mobile Number" length must be equal or greater than 10 Digits. Actually i want to show everywhere "Mobile Number" instead of "Username" in Backend and also in Frontend. Please sir i need your kind help...Waiting for your reply.. August 7, 2012
hello sir, Thanks a lot for your extension...it is great.. I installed ur extension..but i want to accept mobile number instead of Username so i change label from Username to Mobile number... I m facing problem in validation because validation errors still showing Username label i want change these errors as per my requirement. Where i will find it or how i can do this...please help me in this regard. August 7, 2012
So far it works in 1.7..... Just can't edit the min length as the admin menu does not work. Any help would be great as I only want 4 char long July 11, 2012
I installed this extension on Magento 1.6.2. I imported my customers successfully with all usernames, and a lot of user use their email as username. However, when I tried to check out, at Billing Address section, there is a red *required field above continue, when I press continue, there is a window pop up, "Username is invalid! Only letters, digits and '_-' values are accepted." Please let me know how I can fix this. Thanks. July 4, 2012
Hi, Now that I have left a number of posts I thought I would actually write a review. I was desperate for username integration in magento because I integrate my store heavily with Joomla, which is username based. I came across diglin username and am very happy with the way it seemlessely integrates into Magento as if it was part of core. The developer has done a stellar job and must be commended for his efforts especially when offering such a great extension free of charge. It's quite rare to find. Also for those of you that would like to add the username variable to new account emails use {{var customer.username}} when adding a new transaction email template. June 3, 2012
Cool! Works perfectly fine. May 5, 2012
i have installed Diglin_Username-1.4.0 in magento-1.6.1.0 .It is working fine on my local server. but on web i am getting an error (on admin side) :- An error occurred while saving this configuration: SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1452 Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`database_name`.`mg_eav_attribute`, CONSTRAINT `FK_COPL_EAV_ATTR_ENTT_TYPE_ID_COPL_EAV_ENTT_TYPE_ENTT_TYPE_ID` FOREIGN KEY (`entity_type_id`) REFERENCES `mg_eav_entity_type` (`entity_type_) } I tried inserting all the enteries manually as follows :- INSERT INTO `database_name`.`mg_eav_attribute` (`attribute_id`, `entity_type_id`, `attribute_code`, `attribute_model`, `backend_model`, `backend_type`, `backend_table`, `frontend_model`, `frontend_input`, `frontend_label`, `frontend_class`, `source_model`, `is_required`, `is_user_defined`, `default_value`, `is_unique`, `note`) VALUES ('145', '1', 'username', NULL, NULL, 'varchar', NULL, NULL, 'text', 'Username', NULL, NULL, '1', '0', NULL, '0', NULL);. Admin side issue is resolved but i am getting an error (frontend) :- ERROR : Cannot save the customer. April 19, 2012
Brilliant module idea. A question though, i am on 1.6.2 Magento and i have installed the extension correctly, however it is not showing on the frontend after clearing cache. I am using the my own theme, do i have to move some files or enable it in the Admin area? February 21, 2012

Hi :)

Thx for this module, it works as i should - i´m using it to add member id´s to existing and new members - but i´m missing a auto-increment feature.

So that if the last created member is 000123 - it would auto set the next to 000123 (if not already used)

Is this som,thing you could implement in future updates ?

Answer: 
Hi thank you very much for your feedback.
Yes it could be a new feature.
Just a question, the username is a field which is set when creating an account from frontend also. So how would you like to handle this new member ID? I mean it should be generated by the system automatically and the user must not fill the field in frontend while creating the account. Am I right? And what about the customer ID which is already generated automatically by Magento for each new customer. Why don't you use it? Because you need a specific format or else?

Thanks
Regards
Sylvain

Answer: 
Hi again Sylvain.

Thanks for you prompt aswer.

I´m not using the field in frontend, but yes i should be un-editable by the user in frontend - and i´m not using the customer ID, as i needed to be able to import existing usernames (user nr/ member nr) in a specific format :)

Any updates containing some or all functionality described would be much apreciated.

Answer: 
Hi,

You can follow this link https://github.com/diglin/Diglin_Username/issues/14 I created a request to add this enhancement. I cannot promise to do it soon because I have some other priorities at this time, however I planned to check that the extension works on Magento 1.9 (in fact I started but I wont finish at this time), so at the same time I could add this feature.

Regards
Sylvain

Answer: 
Hey!

The login form is missing a new form hidden element: form_key.
If you know how, edit the files for the username forms: yourtheme/template/username (if files are not there, copy them from base/default/username). These instrucitons can help you out: http://blueclawecommerce.co.uk/blog/fix-customer-cannot-login-to-magento-1-8-1/ .

Answer: 
Hi,

You can do it by editing or creating if not exist the translate.csv file which should be located to app/design/frontend/YOURPACKAGE/default/locale/YOURLOCALE/translate.csv

Add in this file the following:

"Diglin_Username::Email/Username:","My text here"
"Diglin_Username::Email Address/Username","My text here"
And so on.

Check the basic locale file to see which strings are available for this module at app/locale/en_US/Diglin_Username.csv

Do not change the basic locale otherwise you will loose your changes if you update the module

Regards

As per one of the other questions, on 1.8.1 it seems to install fine, but you then cannot log in as a customer using either their email address or their username. It just redirects back to the login screen without any error message.

After installing the script I'm unable to create a customer.

On the frontend I get "Cannot save the customer."

On the backend I get "An error occurred while saving the customer."

Any ideas how to fix it?

Hello!
Is it possible to create multiple accounts per one email?

For example, whole family uses webshop, and children don't have own emails yet, and use father's/mother's email for registration.

Answer: 
Hi,

Unfortunately it's not possible. Neither Magento, neither my extension allows it. Email address must be unique in system.
It needs lots of changes to allow it and implementing a deep access control. Sorry

Validation takes place after inputting fields but once all the fields are in, clicking 'submit' doesn't do anything.
