Quick Social Login lets site visitors login or register with a single click! Adds login with Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Slack and WordPress.com on Login page, Register page, Comment forms and WooCommerce Checkout.
Faster login or register will increase the percent of logged in users and conversion on your site, especially helpful on e-commerce sites where the Checkout flow should be as simple as possible.
The plugin is easy to set up, each provider has detailed instructions on how to enable it. These OAuth providers are available:
Login buttons can be added on any page one can think of:
- Login form
- Register form
- WooCommerce pages: My account, Login, Register and Checkout
- Comment form
- Any page, with
- Button style options – Choose the style of login buttons for your site
- Buttons with icon & text
- Secure authentication – User details are verified by the selected platform
- Link / Unlink provider – Button on Users’ profile page to link/unlink login provider
Social accounts are linked to a WordPress user account, and every account can be accessed with and without an social account. Ex: Users can login with Google and/or their email-password combination.
Newly created accounts are assigned the default User Role defined in WordPress Settings, usually the role being
Be aware that Quick Social Login requires the PHP version to be at least 7.0
How to enable login providers?
All login providers are available on “WP Admin -> Settings -> Quick Social Login” page.
Each provider has detailed instructions for set up, including info on how to create or edit specific integrations and adding the cutom codes on your site.
Quick Social Login can add buttons on Login, Register, Comment and WooCommerce pages through plugin options.
Login buttons can be added in pages, articles or widgets with
[quick-login]shortcode. There are more details on how to embed this shortcode in “WP Admin -> Settings -> Quick Social Login -> Embed section” on your site.
How the login or register process works?
When a site visitor clicks on a Quick Social Login button, ex:
Login with Google, the following process takes place:
- User is redirected to Google to authorise your website to read account info
- If authorised, user is sent back to your WordPress site
- If Google account is already linked to WordPress user, the WordPress user is logged in
- If Google account is not linked to a WordPress user AND the email matches a WordPress user, the Google account is linked to WordPress user and the user is logged in
- If Google account is not linked AND email doesn’t match a WordPress user, a new WordPress is registered with details (username, email, name) from Google account
The process is similar for the other providers, except in the case when the provider (ex: Pinterest, Instagram) doesn’t allow the WordPress site to read user’s email. In this case, the user can’t be authenticated on website and needs to Login or Register first, then link the provider account in User Edit page.
Because of newer functionality & security in PHP, this plugin requires the PHP version to be at least 5.6.
If the website server already has PHP >= 5.6 and the plugin still doesn’t work, please send a support request either on WordPress support forum or plugin GitHub page
