after installation and enabling of the package files I get an error when clicking on the Facebook Slogin button from facebook: "An error occurred. Please try again later."
The real problem was to find any instructions or documentations that does not exist (also on google search), while the forum (site comments) is mostly based on Russian :(.
I hope I didn't miss anything for the low score but I just got frustrated by now.
I'm sorry that you can not configure a component, but I note that there are instructions for setting up, in English: http://joomline.ru/en/stati/53-komponenty/306-sozdanie-prilozhenij-dlja-socialnoj- avtoriziacii.html.
Yes we developers from Russia, but we are trying to answer who asks in English.
1) if I disable user registration in joomla, users still create accout through this extension.
2) lacks of foreing languages. needs French,Italian,Spanish and so on. Also many label in the control panel have "variable name" instead of text
3) why add a new login module? Is not possible to ovveride the system one? So other plug-in can interact with!!
Thanks for the review.
I want to note that the localization of function depends on the users of the component. I offer to translate the component you are interested in languages.
Yes component allows registered users to bypass registration joomla, maybe it should have been done as an option, but for many of our customers this is a necessary requirement.
We made a separate module authorization, as we have some plans for its development.
Thanks for the suggestions. Authorization services through Live and Yahoo is already in development plans. Unfortunately we are not likely to implement OpenID, as it contradicts the basic idea of the component.
Todays most of the net users are already registered with and logged in Google or FB . This extension will help you convert those visitors into users on your site without going through the monotonous registration process. Only two clicks the visitor is your member and its for FREE.
It would be great if this component would support Yahoo, Live, Wordpress networks and have JomSocial integration.
We are already thinking about the possibility of integration with Yahoo and Live. WP is a good idea, if it supports the OAuth.
Thank you. We are glad that you enjoyed our expansion, we will be happy if you send the skins for authorization module.
