We are looking for a way to turn off the “Username” field on the sign up form despite the fact that we have “Requires Username” activated on our custom database connection.
Basically we want the email address the user enters to become their username. That is, the same value gets sent to our custom “GetUser” script for both user.email and user.username. We attempted setting usernameStyle to ‘email’ but this does not hide the username field on the signup form.
Is there a way to turn off the username field in the signup form without resorting to JS tricks or having the user type the same value for username and email? We need “Requires Username” activated as we have old legacy accounts that do not use email address for username.
