• Hi, when a user uses any of the social login(FB..twitter..etc) to login, is there a way to register with that new user email instead of username as I am using a plugin which only allow email registration.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    It would require some custom coding. Would you drop an email at support[at]heateor[dot]com with the download link of the plugin you are using for email registration, so that we can provide you details?

    Hi, the login I am using is TML:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/theme-my-login/

    My mistake, the plugin actually supports both email and username registration but I have selected Email only registration from the beginning hence will want to keep it that way.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I’m also currently testing with TML.
    Globally, both plugins integrate nicely and even TML’s login widget gets the social login icons automatically.

    The main problem is with TML’s email messages (welcome message, retrieve password, etc): when a user logs in with a social account those messages are not sent out. This is really problematic in my case because those messages are really needed as they contain essential info for subscribers.

    Is there a solution for that?

    Thanks.

    PS: besides the problem with TML’s welcome messages not being sent out, there is another related issue:

    Users that choose the social login receive WP’s default welcome email “Your username and password info” that invites them to “set a password” and this is a bit confusing as they already logged in without a password but with their social ID.

    Maybe it would be a nice option to have for this plugin that would allow custom welcome messages to be sent to users using social ID?

    Hi @k80sg,
    Sorry for late reply.
    To let users register through Social Login using their email as username, replace existing “wp-content/plugins/super-socializer/inc/social_login.php” file at your website server with the file as following link:
    https://gist.github.com/Heateor/b8a42dd7dc4dece13f47b8de30befa02
    We will include this patch in next release of Super Socializer so don’t worry about losing these changes on updating your plugin next time.

    Hi @john,

    The main problem is with TML’s email messages (welcome message, retrieve password, etc): when a user logs in with a social account those messages are not sent out. This is really problematic in my case because those messages are really needed as they contain essential info for subscribers.

    If you are familiar with WordPress hooks, you can use the_champ_user_successfully_created hook defined in inc/social_login.php file of our plugin to send desired emails to new user when they register using social login.

    Users that choose the social login receive WP’s default welcome email “Your username and password info” that invites them to “set a password” and this is a bit confusing as they already logged in without a password but with their social ID.

    You can disable this email by disabling the Send post-registration email to user to set account password option in Advanced Configuration section at Super Socializer > Social Login page in admin area.
