How to enable Twitter, Facebook auth

Hi
I have a self-hosted version of Vanilla 2.1.8p1 and was wondering if anyone knows a free addon that enables Twitter and Facebook authentication. It looks like you can do easily on cloud version. There appears to be an addon for version 1 but I was not sure if it will work for my version. Any info or insight would be appreciated! I suppose I could code something up but I didn't want to reinvent the wheel if there already is a solution.

    Hi @tpd

    @tpd You can also try using the Social Integration feature, it's already built-in with the latest Vanilla version under Forum Settings -> Social. They are labeled as Facebook and Twitter Social Connect.

    Just enable them as both are disabled by default. You can then just configure it by providing API keys.

    Hope that helps.

  • How do I enable Social Integration in 2.1.11? When I go to the Social tab, I see a blank page. Do I need to download a plugin? I thought this was built-in in 2.1.

    It is. When you say blank page, what exactly do you mean? Is there still an admin frame? Pure white page?

    perhaps info is in http://docs.vanillaforums.com somewhere.

    if you see a blank page. It indicates a possible issue and you may not be familiar with some of the ways to troubleshoot vanilla and debug.

    Suggest you look through the unofficial FAQ. regarding troubleshooting issues. and other potentially helpful things.

    either two reasons. bad permissions or plugin doesn't exist in plugins folder.

    try logging in as admin.

    or checking your manage permissions in dashboard for peter's role.

    also verify you have a plugin called twitter in your plugins folder (and it has correct permissions to allow reading of the plugin)

    these plugins come with the core download (perhaps you didn't extract and copy them properly).

  • I see, I will check again the download plugin folder.
