I would like the option to use email to login by default on my forums to ensure user secuity & prevent anyone from using my username to login.


I feel uncomfortable using this forum service because of this.Another service I used had the problem of not hiding my email from staff.

You can use your email address to login already

Admins on forum's can see any user on that forums email address.

No i want to any time. I login it asks for email and not my user name or have that option in user profile option.

I don't want to find out. I have been hacked and someone using my account to spam links to sites with viruses.

I don't see how having a username allows you to be hacked.
You can change your displayname under your account settings to have a different displayname than your username.
