Many times a user will contact a board admin saying that they can’t log in. Unfortunately because phpBB’s log in system does not use the email for the log in the user often forgets their username they used on the board.
With a small board it is easy to find the username based on the email, with a larger board it is not.
So this mod adds an admin panel email lookup. Just type in an email and it will show what account name that email is registered to. It also has direct links to view or edit the profile.
The installation is simple, and does not involve any file editing at all. Just upload the files and the email search will appear in the admin panel.
