Allow members to login using their email.

NSM Email Login is an ExpressionEngine 2 extension that allows members to login using their email based on this Twitter request.

The idea is that email is generally more memorable than a username which will reduce failed login attempts.

Previously if a developer wanted email login functionality they would need to use Solspaces User module and check "email is username". However doing so would be limit the use of the {username} variable in templates. Example: Profile URLS with usernames would need to be created with unfriendly member id's. - vs -

Now you can have the best of both worlds!
