Advantages: Support for many popular social networks. Not very complex setup. Convenient management of all users in the administrative part of the component (those who login to the site using SLogin). There are additional plug-ins that integrate SLogin with Community Builder, JoomShopping, K2, JomSocial.
Disadvantages: No integration with Community Builder module.
Support: Did not use (good documentation).
Chose this component because I think it best (at the moment of choice) among the available peers. Some users of the site who have registered using SLogin, subscribed to the site news update in social network.
Engaged in web technologies since March 2007. Use Joomla since December 2009.
I've tryed Arra and several few Facebook login and non of them worked 100%. Then i stumbled upon this package and I have to say it's great... I've set up G+, Facebook and Twitter login in 5 mins - everything works like a charm, and the best of all it's - free...
Recommended definitly, and goes to my Favorites :)
Tried contacting developer but email bounces back, Forum is in Russian and no sign of help from the limited documentation.
Looks like am going to have to try another extension. :(
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.
