WordPress Social Login allow your visitors to comment and login with social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo and more.
I've tried a number of these types of plugins over the years, looking for one that is both relatively easy and customizable. Most of the ones I've used have utilized some third-party service that it routes all requests through, and then with enough traffic, will charge for the service.
WSL is different. It just directly connects to the auth services that the providers offer, and it's still fairly easy to setup. I found the instructions on the plugin to be very straightforward and easy to follow, unlike other plugins.
This plugin also gives the ability to customize look, redirection, and some other useful settings, along with Buddypress integration. Of course there are a few things that would make it even better, but it's free and it's the best I've used, so I have no complaints. I've been using it for a couple years now on some community-oriented sites and have zero reason to try another service.
I'd skipped this plugin when seeing the incompatibility with WP 3.9.2. But after experiencing problems with other social plugins, I then tried this one. I can't believe it works! And easy to configure too.
Excellent Plugin! The best social login, Thank you
This plugin just does social login from within WordPress site – nothing more! Well, not exactly... it does many more, like social users management and other related things, but that's everything useful add-ons.
Unlike many-many other plugins, that actually *spam* plugins repo with the "social login" phrase, this one does real login-thru-social-services without any intermediate (payed) services. Mean, once installed, allows you to put your Social App ID and Secret in the proper fields and further acts only to link the social service token to WP user account (it also registers new user on your site, should you chose that option).
*** DON'T FORGET TO TURN OFF ANY AD-BLOCKING ADD-ONS BEFORE TEST! ***
In my own case, Ad-Block has blocked social buttons and i haven't seen those in login widget ;)
Thank's for the plugin, i'll consider donate some bucks! )
Hope the author maintains this.
Way better than other *similar* plugins like Social Login which try to sneak in their links and depend on external services.
Works as promised, is flexible, and dev is really helpful and available!
Hello, this plugin is working fine with HTTP.
but when i was login with facebook on https. then it was sucessfully return from the facebook and get the token also, but it's redirect to login page.
Please let me know what is the issue..
Plugin works great. Easy to use and setup, great way to interact social users. Best plugin on the market!
Thank you for the plugin! I've been using it on different sites for a few years now and integrated a few additional services like posting to social networks, importing media from social networks, etc. with it.
I also really like the idea of mapping various social accounts to a single WP account.
I found one typo in the plugin's admin page though that I need to remember to correct every time I update the plugin.
So here it is:
$user_wsl_email = wsl_get_user_data_by_user_id( "user_wsl_email", $user_id);
$user_wsl_email = wsl_get_user_data_by_user_id( "user_email", $user_id);
since user_wsl_email does not exist in user meta table.
Hopefully, it'll be corrected in the next release.
Again, thank you for a great plugin!
i like it and it is working with my site perfectly. i just install it today after research about social login plugin. most of plugin want me to register an account with there site. but this plugin worked without any registration and that is why i like it. :D
