[resolved] Providers that don't give an email suggestion (6 posts)

    Nice plugin. However one area that is a bit off is the randomly generated emails for people who use a provider that doesn't provide an email (like Twitter for example).

    Another social plugin (which I prefer not to use because it's a SaaS deal) fixes this by allowing (in the admin) for you to configure the plugin to request their email if it's a provider that doesn't allow access to that. It also allows me to edit the message displayed when requesting the email.

    This would be really great because a random email will not work for me. I need to be able to reach my customers via email but I want to allow them to register using social network auth.

    Any chance you will have this...like really soon? I'm launching a new site within a week and I would love to use your solution. Not getting an email with every user is a real problem for me. (On registrations only.)

    Why not use Profile completeness? From what you've described, this will tackle your issue.
    I have no email provided on a todo list for a project of mine, as i'm nto sure I want a form showing up requiring the users email, though I doubt I'll be tackling it for a few weeks.

    Not familiar with that. Is that related to wordpress or what? Sorry, just not sure what you mean.

    I forgot to mention where to find profile completeness sorry... It's an option provided by WSL itself provides, through the component Bouncer. check it out in WSL's settings page.

    Ah ok. Thanks. I'll check that out. I actually didn't install the plugin yet just read about it and was reading your installation info and that's where I saw that it assigned random emails to users from service providers that didn't include it. I'll check that out.

    Thanks. Really wanna stick with a self hosted solution like this instead of a 3rd party SaaS.
