Social Connect

Allow your visitors to comment, login and register with their Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo or WordPress.com account.

Does Social Connect work with WordPress Multisite?

Yes.

Does Social Connect work with the Theme My Login plugin?

Yes.

Can visitors connect with Social Connect to make a comment?

Yes.

Do I need to add template tags to my theme?

Social Connect attempts to work with the default WordPress comment, login and registration forms.

If you want to add the social connect login or registration forms to another location in your theme, you can insert the following code in that location:

<?php do_action( 'social_connect_form' ); ?>

Where can I report bugs & get support?

First, a few caveats on support.

This is free software. Please be patient. I attempt to answer all questions, just not on the same day or even week. Polite and descriptive questions will always be given priority.

Please search the support forums before asking a question - duplicate questions will not receive a reply.

With those caveats in mind, ask questions in the Support Forums.

To help me diagnose the issue, please include the following information in your post on the Forums:

  • what specifically is broken in Social Connect (eg. the buttons don't show up or it doesn't redirect back form Google)
  • what you did just before Social Connect stopped working (eg. activated, enabled all OpenID providers, clicked the Google login button)
  • version of the plugin
  • version of WordPress
  • list of other plugins installed
  • error messages you receive (if any)

Why doesn't Social Connect Work?

Please make sure you are running the latest version of Social Connect and the latest version of WordPress.

If you have White Label CMS installed, the javascript it adds to your login page breaks all other plugins which run javascript on the login form.

For a quick fix and for more information see this forum topic.

If you don't have White Label CMS installed, please double check your settings then post a question in the Support Forums.

Social Connect and Better WP Security plugin

If you have Better WP Security plugin enable you must disable "Prevent long URL strings" option otherwise Social Connect won't work properly.

Why a random e-mail is created when connecting using Twitter?

Unfortunately the Twitter API don't return the user email address. So the plugin gerates a random e-mail address like tw_50e472278151e7941c4254a01773a22e@mysiteurl.com.
