In-Portal these 2 fields (among other fields) in PortalUser table:
  • Login
  • Email
Login field is translated everywhere on forms, like "Username" plus actual login can be performed by Email too, but it's never indicated, so users don't know about it.
Also, when "Registration By Email" is enabled, then Login/Username field is hidden from a form completely. But maybe user want to enter his username just in case (e.g. for nice mod-rewrite url building scheme).

Based on described above I'm proposing:
  1. rename PortalUser.Login to PortalUser.Username field in database + change phrase name "la_fld_Login" to "la_fld_Username" accordingly
  2. don't hide Username (former Login) field from registration/my profile forms, when "Registration By Email" option is turned on
  3. rename "Use Emails As Login" configuration setting name to "Registration By E-mail" or something similar to be more user friendly

Changes are to be applied into In-Portal 5.2.x branch I suppose.
