Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

How to set up login with Google account?

I just installed Vanilla Forum, and I could not find a way to enable registering and logging in with Google account. How to do this? Any step-by-step guides somewhere around?

    Welcome to the community.

    I think the Google + social connect plugin might be what you want.

    It is in the core, so you should find it already in your Dashboard, under plugins.

  • I think Google+ is going to be shut down soon, so will this work?

    I'd say there is no way to log in with Google right now. Please see this issue on GitHub for reference:

    If there will be any progress, you would see it there first. You can also ask for the timeline at that place.

  • Ok, thanks! I'll try with Facebook instead.
