How to use username instead of email for login on Perch Members

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone had any examples of using the Perch Members app with a username to login instead of an email address, and if this is possible? Couldn't seem to see anything on the docs that specified you could, but could have missed something.

No this is not possible. Perch Members app only uses email as username and this is not a changeable option.

That's disappointing, seems like a little bit of an oversight. Would be nice to have this.

It's a conscious design decision rather than an oversight. I can see why you might disagree with it, but it's no accident.

The Members app is a free add-on built using the Perch API - if someone wanted to build a similar app that works in a different way, that option is totally open to them.
