How to login with your @unikname if you already have an account?

Hi everyone,
you’ve your own @unikname and you would like to use it to login to this forum!

That’s cool :+1: but if you’ve already signed-up with an email you’re stuck, using you @unikname will create another account.

Here I show you how to “link” your @unikname to an existing account you may have created with your email.

This guide works on every Discourse Forum using the Authentication plugin :wink:

Link your @unikname to an existing Forum Account

The process is very simple:

  1. login with your email
  2. go to your “/user profil/preferences”
  3. In the Associated Accounts section, select “Connect” with Unikname Connect
  4. Authenticate with your @unikname
  5. Confirm

And you’re ready to login with your @unikname to your account.

Here are the step-by-step screenshots:

Step 1. login with your email

Step 2. go to your “/user profil/preferences”
