[resolved] Leave Comments - Both with WP and FB/Twitter-Login (9 posts)

    On my blog comments are restricted to members.

    Is there any way so both members and fb/twitter users are able to leave comments?

    And if not, may I request this possibility for the next update?

    Thanks in advance!

    The comments widget already supports Facebook/Twitter users being able to login with FB/T and leaving a comment.

    Are you just trying to stop people being able to fill in the fields and comment anonymously. As in force login with a service?

    No, I want to give my visitors the possibility to be able to login either with their registered account or via fb/t!

    So they can decide how they want to login and write some comments.

    But the comments widget from jetpack shows this feature only if I uncheck the option "Users must be registered and logged in to comment " and check "Comment author must fill out name and e-mail " instead.

    Well someone who logs in via FB or Twitter, they arn't a member of your blog. So thats why it doesn't work when you check "Users must be registered and logged in to comment".

    FB/Twitter login is just a quick and easy method to let users fill in the email/name fields quickly. (and in fact the user doesn't need to provide their email address, as a internal pointer to the relevant network is used instead. Its not a blog login.

    You might want to look at a FB/Twitter login to the blog (single sign on) instead of trying to adjust the comment form.

    That's the point.
    You said it's just a quick and easy method. I want this method even if my visitors have to be registered members. Something like:

    You must log in to post a comment. Or use your facebook/twitter account.

    But I'll give your idea even a try, and hope there is such a plugin which allows to integrate fb/twitter login to the blog.

    But using your Facebook/Twitter Account doesn't perform a login to the blog.

    It just creates psuedo entries in the fields where the name/email/website goes.
    It "logs in" to the comment form only, so for example.

    I'm not a member for your blog.
    But I can login (to the comment engine) with Facebook/Twitter and comment.
    And still not be a member of your blog.

    Hope that clears it up.

    That's exactly what I tried to explain! But I want that both of them, registered and non-registered, have the ability to leave a reply.
    Registered with their blog-account, and non-registered, with their fb/twitter account.

    Jetpack activates the fb/twitter buttons only if I deselect the "must be registered" option in wp.

    There is not currently a way to restrict guest commenting with Jetpack Comments. If you turn on the "Must be registered" option, then you will be unable to use the Facebook or Twitter logins.

    This is in our list to look at in a future release; there is no ETA on a fix, though.

    Thanks for all the answers. I found a workaround for this, and hope to see this update very soon.
