Status for Mediawiki4Intranet distribution:

  • Included version: newest available
  • Improvement status: Created by MediaWiki4Intranet project


Just install. The extension will modify the standard MediaWiki login form allowing to use email in the "username:" field.


  • Apply the patch to MediaWiki code:
    patch -p1 < extensions/LoginByEmail/LoginByEmail.diff
  • Include extension into your LocalSettings.php - add the line:
  • Optionally you can allow "wrong password" errors for email login with:
    $wgLoginByEmailDiscloseExistence = true;
    Please note it's a less secure behaviour because it allows to check if an arbitrary email is registered in your wiki.
