User name

Dear JoomShopping,

My website with your program is now on line since one month.

When building the site, I was not happy with the fact that the only way a user could register was by creating a USER NAME. I feel that this is not the way that most websites let users log in. Having to create USER NAMES for many websites (and remember them) is complicated for many. Most websites now ask users their EMAIL address to log in.

I therefore asked my web designers to alter your program and ask for the EMAIL address when creating an account. On all screens where USER NAME was required, now it says EMAIL (but obviously a user can just create a user id that is not an email address).

The problem is that I now find that this field is limited to a certain number of characters. The email field is not. What is happening, is that some users have very long email addresses, and when they enter in their email address in this field, some of the last letters get 'cut off'.

Can you tell me where in the program I can change this limit to the number of characters in the USER NAME (which for me has become email?) I would like to make it UNLIMITED.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Too much, Roma

This is certainly beyond my capabilities. I am not a web designer, but just a simple shop owner.

I assume that you are saying that there is no path to change this, and I need a computer expert to do this.

I checked the path:

www.toomuch.it\administrator\DATABASE

and I can not see what file to open/change.

I would not know the first thing about installing and using myphpadmin.

Is there no other relatively simple/easy way to change this parameter?

Thanks,

Too much, Rome
