I want to add Mobile number field to customer registration form. So that user can login with help of email id or mobile number.


I have tried this extension but it shows me an error.

I have tried creating simple custom extension "Hello World" but don't have experience to write any useful extension .

Can you please give some idea related to my requirement?

1- You have to create the attribute phone_number and then display it for the customer in register.phtml and edit.phtml, you have to follow this tuto

2- You have to Rewritte loginPostAction() from AccountController.php to your local codepool, you can follow this tuto and then you add this piece of code in loginPostAction():

if (strpos($login['username'], '@') === false){ //the user has entred a phone number
          $telUser = $login['username'];
          $customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')->getCollection()
                       ->addAttributeToFilter('phone_number', $telUser)
          if($telUser == $customer->getPhoneNumber()){
              $login['username'] = $customer->getEmail();
