This extension offers two features:

  • Use user emails as their "display name" in Flarum.
    • Permission to see for own user
    • Permission to see for all users (be careful with this one)
  • Removes usernames from login and sign up forms. New users are assigned a random string as username.
    • Must be enabled in the settings modal


composer require clarkwinkelmann/flarum-ext-email-as-display-name


This extension is under minimal maintenance.

It was developed for a client and released as open-source for the benefit of the community. I might publish simple bugfixes or compatibility updates for free.

You can contact me to sponsor additional features or updates.

Support is offered on a "best effort" basis through the Flarum community thread.
