[Resolved] Change Login form’s label

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:
Can I customize the WordPress Login Form with Toolset?

Solution:
The output of [wpv-login-form] is nothing more than a "copy" of the WordPress Login Form.

It does not add any custom HTML structure, only outputs what the native WordPress function does.

So to customise the Labels you will need a Custom Code that produces a Customized Login Form, on your own.

Relevant Documentation:
https://toolset.com/documentation/views-shortcodes/#wpv-login-form
https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_login_form
https://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Login_Form

Use these Filters:

login_form_defaults
login_form_top
login_form_middle
login_form_bottom

I auto-generate the usernames for my users because it's a part of the registration process which is mandatory but completely irrelevant for my site.
In turn, I want that the login form only displays "Email" instead of "Username or Email", to avoid confusion.

How can this be done?
Thanks.

I assume you are using the Toolset Login Form ShortCode?
