google + login setup with shared host

i am new to the vanilla forums, installing (CMS and forums ) throw shell terminal and creating sites in general. i like the easy way to setup some features using plugins. but there is some features that i can setup using plugins, i have a shared host plan, and i don't have an access to the SSH terminal so i can't setup features like facebook and twitter and google+ login. or is there is any other way i can do that?


  • You don't need SSH to set up facebook. All you need to do is make sure curl is enabled on your host (so the server can make requests to google). just had a blog article about setting up G+:

    @Bleistivt‌ thanks for reminding me to add this to the post. Sometimes when you use Vanilla so long you forget the most important steps. I will have a video on this later today on the YouTube channel, but as you rightly pointed out, this plugin also works on 2.1, just need to grab it from the repo. Cheers!

    I suppose, if you are expecting help, you would explain in detail, what is not working. :) and what version of plugin you are using and what you have done to try to make it work, and what errors you are getting, if any.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • I uploaded

    named the theme map GooglePlus,

    when i want to enable the GooglePlus plugin, it says
    The plugin folder was not properly defined.

    what am i doing wrong?

  • Sorry i mean i download all the files of github for the GooglePlus plugin, not only class.googleplus.plugin.php as i say here above.
