Stopped working
By , for WP 3.8.2

The plugin was working sweetly on my test site, and it seemed like a great finishing touch.

Then I changed URL's. After straightening out the entire site (two hours tops) I have spent the better part of the last 24 hours (only 4 hours of sleep) wrestling with WordPress Social Login. I have tried everything humanly possible, but the login screen now behaves like a bad teenager. The theme_my_login instances of the social buttons are void(0) javascripts; the comment buttons work as they are expected to work; when I get a basic login page it refreshes itself instead of querying the social app--when I do a WP login it goes off to the app, returning with a message that I'm already logged in (duh!).

The support forums are no help, since the programmer seems to be no help. Too bad.

Time to look elsewhere.

trouble with plugin, bad support
By ,

i installed the plugin and at first i was really eager to make it working. but there was trouble and the attitude of the developer who basically does not provide support, lead to make me change the plugin.

Too much work
By ,

This took way to long to get to work and after all that work it didn't work for me when I tested it. It's not the hassle and there are other faster and better plug ins that do the same that you don't have to sign up to a site to install and use.

Facebook integration broken?
By ,

Plugin seems to scan Facebook accounts for userpics, and is somehow getting wrong pictures from wrong accounts. Annoying.

Even worse, these wrong userpics are overwriting default Gravatars, and there only way to get old Gravatar back as default userpic is to manually set corresponding wsl_user_image option in database to something sensible.

Forced to give one star due to lack of support
By , for WP 3.4.2

This plugin seemed to have been designed very well and worked well...at first. And then it stopped. And no one responded to my posts here or on the related Google Group. Sure it's free but so is 90 percent of the plugins out there. Without support the time I spent integrating it into my sites was entirely wasted.
