    Hi,

    I love your plugin but I guess it is not up-to-date. Twitter is not accepting query parameters. I’m getting the following error for url www.website.com/wp-login.php?quick-login=twitter

    Query parameters are not allowed.

    Please help me set it up!

    Hi,

    Thanks for letting me know, I’m testing now and will update here with more details shortly

    Noticed what causes this, I guess the Twitter app requirements have changed recently.

    For Callback URL, fill the website url like this:
    www.website.com/wp-login.php
    instead of
    www.website.com/wp-login.php?quick-login=twitter

    The question mark and everything after it should be removed. This is the only change needed, and the plugin should work as expected.

    I’m updating the plugin today so that the Twitter instructions show the correct info & url.

    Thanks for your help and for keeping the plugin up-to-date!

    I was wondering, is it possible to make the social login use a pop-up (outh dialog) like most big sites instead of leaving the site?

    The choice to not open popups is made intentionally for this plugin, as custom embedded code would be needed from Google/Facebook/etc to open those popups.

    Usually the custom JavaScript code is embedded in login page even if the Facebook/Google button would not be used, and sending analytics data to those providers without any interaction.

    This is just an example that’s in the news https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/z3b745/zoom-removes-code-that-sends-data-to-facebook

    The OAuth authentication standard works by default without the popups, using only the link redirects, and the person that signs in is always redirected back to website in case of success or failed authentication.

    Hope this helps
