WP Steam Auth

Description

This plugin will let your visitors register & login to your WordPress via their Steam account using one and unique button.

All new authentification will create a new WordPress legacy user and will be automatically logged in the process. Once they are registered via Steam, users may login to your WordPress using the same Steam button.

Old WP users (registered before the plugin activation) have the possibility to synchronize their account with Steam once loggedin with the legacy WordPress system.

Note: WP Steam Auth Plugin is fully compatible with WordPress & Buddypress. Steam profile data is stored in the WP_user meta data. WP Steam Auth doesn’t interfere with the legacy WP Login/Registration system, it means that you’ll be always able to login with the legacy method.

Features:

  • Register/Login with one unique button
  • Automatically create a new WordPress legacy user
  • Automatically Upload the Steam avatar during registration
  • Choose to use the wordpress avatar or the steam avatar
  • Synchronize button available for old WP Users
  • Customize the Post-login & Post-Logout URL, or use Referer instead
  • Customize URLs & base slugs (Login / Sync. / Logout)
  • Login/Register via a popup for a better user experience
  • Manage users Steam synchronization in WP users dashboard
  • Force ReSync. for specific (or bulk) users
  • Remove Sync. for specific (or bulk) users

Use the following Shortcode:

This will instantly logout the user. On the next login with Steam, the WP Steam Profile will be updated with latest Steam data (Profile URL, Avatar, Sync. date etc…)

What is the “Remove Sync.” feature?

This will instantly logout the user & remove the WP Steam Profile. The user won’t be able to log back via Steam. He will need to login via legacy WP method and then synchronize manually. Cannot be undone.

Yes it works, but I want to do a feature request(IDK if I'll get any response as last update of plugin was 11 months ago but let's try). Soooo... Is possible an update adding an option like "if it's the first user login with that steam account ask to put an e-mail adress to create the account"? Like websites that allow you to log-in with google+/facebook but they need some more info to complete registration. Would an option like that possible? Thanks for reading.

I've got the same problem with this guy: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/http-error-500-21/ And I figured that the guy's thread is abandoned by the plugin author. Basically 500 internal error with the default settings, and when doing the plugin author's suggestions, I got rid of the 500 internal error but it's still not working (not able to login with steam).

Please delete, i can't do it myself...
