You need to register with the plugin creators
By ,

You need to register with the plugin creators and get an API key before the plugin will work. Why would someone do that? This is not the plugin for me, because it's not truly free.

horrible
By ,

Another one of these plugins where they promise you free things...
you jump through hoops, register on their site... give you your data... just to find out the only free version allows only 2500 members ... otherwise you must pay

on top of everything they want a verified phone number lol

Works as advertised, support team was quick to reply
By , for WP 3.4.2

I was pretty concerned this plugin was not going to be what I needed it to be from all of the 1 star reviews.

I've got it installed and at least for social login, I find it works as advertised. I didn't mind creating an account at Login Radius, they've got some nice tutorials there that walk you through how to get everything configured over at Facebook, Google, Twitter etc so that everything works.

You'd have to do these steps regardless of using this plugin, but really nice that it's all laid out for you.

Also note your logins do jump first to their servers, then redirect back to your own site so that may be an issue for some.

I really like that the plugin will check to see if someone's email already exists, and if so it will merge the social logging in account with the existing one ( you can turn that off as well). Also nice is it will prompt for an email on the way back from services like Twitter that don't share emails.

As for support, I had an issue with Google Chrome blocking some of the Javascript, on an https page. I posted it to their support forum and got an answer in less than 24 hours.

I recommend this plugin, and by the way it totally works with WooCommerce, though you've got to modify the proper files in WooCommerce to add the do_shortcode php stuff so it loads up where you want it to -- but once that's done, Login Radius allows your user to create an account or to sign in and then brings them right back to the check out page with everything still there.

Nice job LoginRadius team.

BEWARE OF THIS PLUGIN - locked out of dashboard
By , for WP 3.5

Firstly, in defence of loginRadius, I AM using version 3.5 of wordpress and it did say only tested on earlier versions. However, it caused a real headache for me as it locked me out of the dashboard completely, even though it did login to my site, using all of the new buttons. The setting up took a morning to do and relavant buttons linked in with login page, (although the yahoo API had to ne done manually as the provided setup failed)

Support did not answer in a timely fashion (still haven't) and I went to WordPress forums for advise. In the end, I FTP'd into the site and renamed the offending file, which then gave me accees to the dashboard and the plugin automatically deactivated as the renamed file tricked it into thinking the file did not exist. Pity, because clearly a lot of work has gone into the plugin and easy to follow setup procedure . . . but at the end of the day . . . failed big time by denying site admin or dashboard access. Might try again if I have any feedback from LoginRadius support, if not I will not touch them with a barge pole. Especially after reading some of the other reviews . .

We wasted over $1,000 on this plugin and customizations, and have nothing to show for it. They repeatedly claimed to have done the work, even though the plugin was not even installed. In addition, they do not provide analytics as advertised.

We are a non-profit & finally asked for a refund and termination of service. They refused to refund the money.

There are several other plugins that provide the same capabilities, but are free and cannot be more disreputable than this company. Below are some links to check out:

Do not sure
By , for WP 3.4.2

I installed this plugin, and the login works fine. However the commenting feature is broken. It does not matter if I am using social commenting or not, all I see in the comment area (both for a logged in and logged out user) is just a text field. Not even a submit button.

I conclude that this plugin does not work and I do not suggest that people try it.

Very disappointed.
By , for WP 3.4.2

Very disappointed.

First they want us to install. Then when we install they tell us that we have to create an account. [ pointless inflammatory comment redacted ] Now I have to delete it and uninstall it.

Misleading advretising: Does not work with multisite
By , for WP 3.4.2

The plugin requires you to configure it on a per site basis. Furthermore the description indicates that it is multisite capable.
