  • Chris F.



    The description of this plugin states that your existing users can just simply login to the site with FB/Twitter, etc. It appears that there is no way to sync the FB/Twitter/Google accounts with the existing WordPress account.

    Am I missing something here? Is there a way to sync these existing user accounts with their social network of choice?

  • Chris F. – If the the email address is the same in your WordPress site as the email address used for the Facebook account (for example) it will sync, however, I would like to find out if it is possible for the plugin to ask if there is already an account, then ask for the account details and if there is not already an account, I would like it to ask for a username and password to be created.

    The main reason is because I use an external registration plugin (ninety login) which allows users to choose their own password when registering, with a “welcome email” plugin, so with this method, no password is being randomly generated for new users.

    I’m have a similiar issue, when a user account already exists with the same name…it will created a new user account that looks like this:


    How can we check if the user already exists?
