Use email address as username when a new user registers with WP Job Manager. Set custom label for Username on login pages. Compatible with Jobify.


This plugin will use the email address as the username whenever someone registers through WP Job Manager. This will also work with any other plugins or themes that use the job_manager_create_account_data filter.

With release of version 1.2.0 you can now change the default label "Username" for all login screens to use a customized user-defined label.

The Jobify theme has been confirmed and tested to work correctly with this plugin.

  • note: * using email as username is disabled by default, you must enable it under the WP Job Manager settings page. There is a link to the page when you activate this plugin.


  • Use email as username
  • Set display_name and nickname as username that was going to be used
  • Replace "Username" with "Username or Email" on login forms
  • Set custom user-defined label for "Username" on login pages




Documentation will be maintained on the GitHub Wiki here.
