Template Parse Error!
It seems something has gone sour on the forum with the template system. This problem should only be temporary, so please come back later and try again. If you continue to see this message, please contact the administrator.

You can also try refreshing this page.

Looks like you figured it out

A few questions before setting up:

What happens immediately after registration?

Are members given the opportunity to select a password? A Username?

Does their avatar from their social profile get linked?

Can they still login without their social login?

Study Force please don't assume I am correct, someone who KNOWS will come along in due course, but I THINK...

What happens immediately after registration? Not sure what you mean here.

Are members given the opportunity to select a password? A Username?
If the facebook name is fred nirk then the username becomes fred.nirk

Does their avatar from their social profile get linked? No I don't think so.

Can they still login without their social login? Again, not sure.

I assume that ALL the changes made when installing social login are shown in the 'parse manually' function.

However, does social login make any changes to SMF files subsequently?  i.e When activated or when a user joins via social media for the first time?

I've uninstalled the mod but am not 100% sure that things are as they were before, and I need to be certain.


Thanks

I have finally got around to installing this and have several answers:

What happens immediately after registration?

You are redirected to your profile. At least in my forum where it's programmed to do that.

Are members given the opportunity to select a password? A Username?

No. The username is generated based on your social media account. The password is auto-generated as a number, but the user doesn't get to see it. Therefore, if the software stops working, those members are doomed.

There's a simple work around though. What I did was create an auto-generated password that's easy to remember, and upon successful login, that password is sent to the user within a personal message explaining their backup login credentials.

Does their avatar from their social profile get linked?

Yes, which I find quite nice.

Can they still login without their social login?

Out of the box, they can't, but I've worked around it (read above).

Hello,
I want to change a color, but I'm not able to find the style. ???
Where is this location or how can I change a color from there?
The color is the text-label bellow every button.

Code: [Select]

I don't think you can because the login buttons are found within an iframe and you can't control the css within iframe elements

I am aware about that but I was wondering is there any chance as part of some new update to add css file or that would be risky move?

you can't -- an iframe calls a completely separate website. Nothing you do for CSS will affect the display in the iframe.

Part of their business involves subscribing (costs money) so that you can modify that stuff from their end -- I see where they're coming from.

Even if a new update included a CSS file, the login interface is loading from an iframe, unless they did a complete rewrite which I assume they'd never do. On a side note, you could use javascript to remove/modify certain stuff, but the work required isn't worth the minimal gain in my opinion, because it's pretty good the way it is out of the box.

I incorporated it into my main forum and it looks pretty good.

It looks good because you are using white background. If you change to some dark style it wouldn't be same look.  :-\

Mine is gray, not white. Why not place the code within a div that is white and has a border that's gray? That'll make it pop out more.

I got this. Then the instructions do not seem to apply as Twitter changed the app URL/permissions and the old app is not functional anymore. I use Social Login 3.6
