Signup from Social Media Profiles
« on: November 04, 2018, 07:36:04 AM »
Hello,

I want to allow the members of my "coming soon" SMF forum to sign up using the Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus account. Kindly tell me which mod is available for this? I want to apply that on my demo forum and when everything is fine I will apply that on my main forum.

Thanks.

That is great. Will I be able to check which members are registered with their social profiles?
Will I be able to check their social profiles?

Actually, I want that the people who join my forum from social media profile, I can invite them in my Facebook group and Facebook page.

All of those things are possible with this mod. See my site as an example

I have installed this plugin now... The picture is attached below.

Very little can be done to the style given how it's implemented, unfortunately.

Indeed.  Social Login is a third party service, with the SMF mod being the means of implementing it on your forum.
The look and feel of the logon section (as shown in the image) is controlled by social login, not SMF and not your forum css.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

To paraphrase Kindred: "There are no technical solutions to social problems."

Google+ is shutting down so there is one less option to worry about:

Save yourself the headache. Facebook changes their developer apps ALL the time. As Bigguy stated G+ is ending. And you can't change the configuration. There's also another one available for sale by one of the SMF 3rd party developers. DO NOT get tricked into buying it. The support is awful, they just direct you to their forum or to the support pages they have.

I agree I don't think it is worth it. api's change services come and go then they loose access to their account and you have no way to contact them.

I had a beautiful setup with oneall. What I did was prgram it to send a PM to the member with his/her auto-generated password and email address as soon as they registered. now that I have gone over their limit (sadly), I still see many of those members log in normally using their email address and password. no harm, no foul.
