Support » Plugin: WordPress Social Login » Does not capture email address

  • Does not capture email address of users even from facebook.

    For example if the user is John Doe, it is taking the email as “”.
    It is not taking the email address linked to the user’s facebook profile.

    The author does not reply to queries on forum.

  • Yeah.. That’s a big fat lie. IF user has set his public email, it retrives and sets it – tested it myself multiple times.

    It does NOT get the email that is used to log in to Facebook or other social media because this is kept secret by social media provider because it is half what you need in order to log in and it is a security risk!

    @example email is generated because you CANNOT register an user without email! You can easily change the structure or translate “example” or other parts of generated email from wsl.authentication.php.

    If that doesn’t satisfy you, use bouncer so that user could choose his/her username and email before registering – that’s the perfect solution that makes sure that email is correct and user can choose his/her username what is not possible the other way around.

    The problem is not from the plugin itself. Facebook changed some setting so now you need to include info_fields: email in order to get the email from facebook.

    The easiest way to capture the user’s email from facebook using this plugin again is – use facebook api 2.0 instead of 2.4.

    Try find some test facebook app you created before which use api 2.0 and change the setting.

    Hi unireyco,

    Can you please confirm how to use “bouncer” to let user set their email while registering via WP Social Login, actually I an novice in PHP. Can you please share any link for how to do that blogs or some kind of help.

    I would like to use this plugin in multi-site and it is capturing the example email several times for that multi-site.
