SocialAuth-WordPress a WordPress 3.0+ plugin which enables social login integration through different providers (eg. Facebook, Twitter).


  • Introduced short code [SocialAuth-WP-Short-Code] to get social-auth-wp working from pages and posts along with login page.
  • Added compliance for registrations settings; if registration is disabled new users can not login to your WordPress site.
  • Added a new option to settings to hide 'My Contacts' option if you do not need that.
  • Introduced post login redirect capability to get back to page from where you initiated login process.
  • Started to use user's first name when username not available from login provider, this will fallback to user profile identifier if first-name and username both are not available.
  • Added link for 'Back to Login' (close pop up window) when authentication fails and user is prompted with error message.
  • Other minor improvements for consistency and user friendly interface
  • Added some ground work to satisfy AOL openID authentication using XRDS document.


  • Upgraded HybridAuth library to 2.1.1

  • Fixed Twitter multiple profiles issue.
  • User is automatically logged in after email verification.

  • Added admin controlled email verification for new users. This is quite useful where login provider do no validate user e-mail, enabling this will allow only users with active email account to register with you WordPress site.
  • Added an option in admin-settings to enable showing on login provider icons on comment and registration page, this is will help users to directly logon from there without going to login page.

By default WordPress tries to fetch avatar from Http://gravatar.com using email address in you profile, you can override that setting from plugin settings page and force WordPress to get profile picture/avatar from social media provider user is currently logged-in with.
