Hi there,

Is there any way that users are able to register by their phone number instead of/beside email?

Mobile usage is becoming more and more popular and this seems to be addressed.

Thanks,
Q2A version: 1.7.4

it is good idea but currently this feature is not supported. Also your server need to handle sending messages to user, diff countries....

Thanks for the response,

We don't have problem to send messages, as we can get an API from a SMS reseller. The SMS Panel will take care of all of the sending stuff.

How this feature can be supported on Q2A? Is it a hassle?

check how recaptcha plugin work, if your SMS api is similar then implement that way. it is just authorization from SMS provider. Unless there is confirmation it will not allow for registration.

if you want to store phone no and verify later then you need to add that feature.
