Tip: don't change your username


  • Tip / Idea

If you want to be able to log in via Touchstone, your username must be your email address. I changed my username from "rjw@mit.edu" to the much sleeker "rjw" and thereafter was only able to log in with my password. Thanks to Chris Giles for help in diagnosing the problem.


Well, since this ended up in the Question category, here's the question: "Is it okay if I remove the @mit.edu from my Drupal username?" Answer above.


Good to know because when site owners are blogging, adding news, ect., it's usually best to use their full name in title case.
