Social Login enables people to log in into your site using their account in social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, Instagram etc.)

Social Login Pro is now open source

Currently supports authentication using:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Google (with some limitations)
  • Windows Live ID
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • Yahoo!
  • vKontakte (

Other sites/providers can be added in the future on demand.

If the member with given social network account is already registered in your site, he is logged in into his account. Otherwise new account is created.

Avatars are fetched and stored in EE database together with other user’s information.

Compatible with Zoo Visitor, Profile:Edit and other member-related add-ons.

Here’s a quick usage example to give you an idea:

{if logged_in}
{screen_name}--{username}--<a href="{path=LOGOUT}">Log out</a>
{exp:social_login:form return="comments/social-login"}
<input name="provider" type="radio" value="{provider_name}" id="{provider_name}_button">
<label for="{provider_name}_button"><img src="{provider_icon}" title="Log in using {provider_title}" /></label>
<br />
<input type="submit" value="proceed" />

As always Yuri delivers..! Great support (usually me not knowing how to do something). This plugin saved the day enabling me to have FB login and a traditional login work side by side. Thanks again..!!!

Looks great, works well with Facebook and Twitter, but we promised our client Linkedin login which didn’t work at all, support responded promtly, but couldn’t fix our issue. Don’t buy if you need linkedin!

Awesome experience so far, was up and running within minutes. If you’re trying to figure out which of the two social sign on add-ons to get? This is the one.

Good price. Pretty unfinished. Have been trying to get support for a week, haven’t been able to… pretty frustrated. Once it supports more robust features could replace something like socialEE which relies on janrain…  generously giving it 3 stars. Testing on mobile version of site in mean time..

Got it working in seconds. Simple. I have an experience of using some other add-ons of this kind (i won’t name it, search), and this one rocks. Highly recommended!

Affordable!  Easy to use!  Looking forward to the natural evolution of this terrific add-on as social media presence only increasingly plays an important part of every day lives.  HIGHLY recommended.  Thank you Yuri.

Social Login is a fantastic tool for allowing your website visitors to login to your site. It’s easy to use and makes the sign in process a breeze. Yuri provides excellent support for his add-on and I would highly recommend this Module to others.
