you’ve your own @unikname and you would like to use it to login to this forum!
That’s cool 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

The process is very simple:

And you’re ready to login with your @unikname to your account.
Here are the step-by-step screenshots:

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

Then you can see that you’re now connected with your @unikname
All done! Now you can login with your @unikname
