I would like to provide a "Login with Facebook" and "Login with Google+" kind of option to the users of my site. It seems Wordpress has such features, but I'm not clear how to set them up. Can anyone help?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm doing the same on my sites. I've been exploring some plugins. One is https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-social-login-wordpress-plugin/8495883 and seems to work pretty well so far IF you are running woocommerce.
Here is another one that is pretty good: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-social-login/
Stay away from UserPro Social -- I've tried multiple times to use this on GoDaddy servers and it does not work well and I've never had a good experience with it.
Here is a search link of the wp repository. You'll see there are quite a few to choose from.
Here is a search of CodeCanyon: https://codecanyon.net/search/social%20login?as=0&referrer=homepage&utf8=%E2%9C%93
Just do your due diligence when selecting your plugin provider!
Hope this helps,
Thank you. I am trying Social Login. After installing the Plugin, it requested me to setup an account with OneAll.com. From there, I need to go into each social network (FB, G+, IN, etc.) and do a few setups to authorise data collection. I have completed that for FB, and added a Social Login Widget to my site. But I still don't see the "Sign-in with Facebook" button. What am I missing?
In the Facebook setup I had checked data other than Public Profile, Email and Friends List. I think they do some kind of review and it takes time. I un-checked additional data fields and it started working. But now, there is a tag line that says "Powered by OneAll Social Login", which I didn't want 🙂
I haven't actually checked on this YET, however; for most plugins there are premium/developer level pricing tiers. Somewhere along the line, the "powered by" will be removed as level increases. With some plugins you can change the "powered by" code in the plugin; however, this may be a licensing violation so check on this before modifying this part of the code.
Many of the "powered by" plugins are always looking for testimonials. If this is a good plugin for you, post a testimonial on their page with a link back to yours to "show off their good work." Once you have the testimonial posted, then go to your footer and post a link to your testimonial at the "powered by" site right above/below their link. Use their "power" as an energy/traffic source for your page. Also, no coding involved!
Hope this helps,
