Installing Social Login
Command Line Installation
Configuring Social Network Applications
Pinterest (https stores only)
The Social Login extension is ready for work right after installation. It comes with a set of social login blocks that can be enabled separately for register, login, shopping cart, and checkout pages.
The blocks can contain up to nine login buttons: PayPal, Odnoklassniki, Vk, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google, Facebook, and Twitter. With the social login buttons, customers can log in to a website with one click (provided that they are already logged into the corresponding social network).
How an account is created?
Whenever customers click a social login button, they get redirected to the corresponding social network page. At the social network page, they need to confirm that they want to use their social accounts to log in to the store.
Once confirmed, customer is taken back to the store. The account is created.
The extension introduces its settings section in Stores > Configuration > AHEADWORKS EXTENSIONS > Social Login.
Within this section, you can decide on which store pages social login blocks should be displayed. Additionally, you can include/exclude the required social networks from the social login block.
The section comes with the following settings:
- Enable Social Login - enables/disables the extension's output;
- Login Blocks - enables/disables the default login blocks and allows adding custom blocks;
- Twitter/Facebook/Google/LinkedIn/Instagram/Pinterest/Vk/Odnoklassniki/Paypal - these sections allow enabling/disabling particular social networks for logging-in purposes and store appropriate consumer keys and secrets.
Managing Social Accounts
Another section the extension introduces to the store backend is 'Social Accounts' found under Customers > Social Login by aheadWorks > Social Accounts.
At the frontend of the store, the Social Login extension introduces the 'My Social Accounts' customer account section.
In this section, customers can view and manage their social accounts (by linking new and unlinking current ones).
Having linked a social account, customers can log in to the store in one click and then proceed to the catalog.
