- 0 (after 0 ratings)
Instead of the default Django User the Auth Model is 'customer' from the usercp App.
User's can use username as a display to the public, without disclosing their login information. This way they can use a forum with their username, which is seen by everyone. The login credentials, however are more privat, since it is the e-mail address. Allowing the user to not disclose any information.
