I’d like to remove the field user name. I want to only require email address and password from members for registration and login.
I can login with email address already so there is not need for user name. Users will not talk to each other so there is no need for user name.
Please let me know how I can remove the user name field from registration form.

The “username” field is a required field for this plugin (it can’t be removed). WordPress requires the username field so that field is an integral part of our plugin for the registration process.
You can use the following addon which will allow your users to log into the site using email address and their password:January 25, 2016 at 8:08 am #72401gruenishMember
I understand that username is required by wordpress but it could use the email address as well so that it’s a unique field and always filled but the user wouldn’t need to make up another info.
Since I can login with the email address already, and user name will never be used by the user for anything, I think it would be really useful to hide the username field and simply, internally copy the email address into it so that wordpress is satisfied.August 8, 2016 at 2:05 am #72402kidpowerSpectator
I would also like to force fill the username field with email address. I have the same circumstances as gruenish, in that users will not talk with each other and don’t need the extra step of entering a username when we would prefer they use their email address anyway.
We have the login with email address add on and that is working well. I’ve added instructions next to the Username creation field to encourage users to enter their email address. Still it would be more user friendly if we could just pre-fill the field for them since we already have the data.
I have the Form Builder add on as well – however it does not accept the eMember shortcode in the field to pre-populate the field – it just shows the shortcode (bummer).
We definitely want email verification and already make users jump that hoop – this would be a nice one to remove from their registration process.
Anything you can suggest or offer is greatly appreciated – we are very pleased with the eMember and eStore plugins for our member-only content and digital products.

I can create a small custom addon for you so the username field gets auto populated with the email address value.
