cpg1.5.42 maintenance release - upgrade recommended
The Coppermine development team is releasing an update for Coppermine in order to fix several minor issues. All fixes are not security critical, so if your gallery is running fine with cpg1.5.36, cpg1.5.38 or cpg1.5.40 you don't need to upgrade. If you are running an older version than cpg1.5.36, you must update to this latest version as soon as possible because of the security impact!

[Done]: use email when loging in
« on: February 02, 2006, 09:48:23 PM »

Does anyone know how we can use the email address of a person to login as opposed to a username. I think most people like it that way, since they dont have to remember the username they used to register. However, once inside, the user is always identified by their username(as it is now). Any ideas? Thanks!

I don't know such a hack, but it's a good idea, so I'm moving this from the support board so it doesn't get forgotten

most definetly agree on this one! Change usernamn to "display name" and use the e-mail address instead. Many photo-gallery visitors aren't very IT mature...
