Theme Integration

To generate a Glitch login button for your theme, use the glitchauth_login_url function in place of wp_login_url. Example:
< ?php
echo 'Login with Glitch’;
// Alternatively, bring the user back to current page after login by using the redirect_to param // echo ‘
get_permalink())) . ‘”>Login with Glitch‘; ?>

If in The Loop, you can use the_glitch_avatar function. Example:

To get a specific user’s Glitch Avatar, use the glitchauth_get_glitch_avatar() function. Example:
