  1. What the hell are you doing your nextend facebook connect has lot of problem it stop my site now tell me what i do my website http://enter****
    you app send me some updates when i update your app it not showing my website
    PLZ do something for it

    Get back me on this my email adress is

    1. The Login button doesn’t work. Fortunately the image button does work.

      The Login button looks a lot cooler. So would be really cool if it worked. I suspect you guys just need to update it.

  2. Hi, when somebody log with his account (Google or Twitter) is it possible to have e-mail adress in the wordpress admin to use it after for mailing for example?


    1. Hi!

      The Nextend Google Connect will automatically save the users email address to the user in your WordPress.

      Nextend Facebook Connect: if the app can access to the user’s email address, the plugin will save into your database.

      Nextend Twitter Connect: Twitter doesn’t give out the email addresses, so the plugin can’t query it. There are a lot of topic about this, but there is no solution to get twitter email adresses. :(

  3. Great plugin.
    I only had a minor issue: Redirect after login didn’t work, so I had to add the “redirect” parameter to new_fb_sign_button:

    function new_fb_sign_button(){
      global $new_fb_settings;
      return '<a href="'.new_fb_login_url().'$redirect='.$_GET['redirect_to'].'" rel="nofollow">'.$new_fb_settings['fb_login_button'].'</a>';
      1. A lovely plugin. I dare to use this because it is free and not tighed to any web site (which could be a disaster if they change policy there!).

        But it is a bit funny that I was redirected to your home page when logging in here. Please consider adding the code above to the plugin so that redirects work, @Roland. 😉

  4. Another problem I noticed is that the facebook-btn.css loads the Open Sans font over HTTP. For sites that use HTTPS, this generates a warning message. The simple solution would be to use protocol-independent syntax:

    @import url(//;

    The browser will automatically chose http or https.

    PS: Is the source code available on github or something? That would make it easier to contribute…

    1. Thanks! I have added it each of the plugins. If you have account at, I can add you to the development team, which give writing access to the repositories for you. Please contact me in email for this :)

  5. Can not login through facebook. It triggered fatal error.

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class FacebookApiException in /home/pontee/public_html/ on line 107

    Any Suggestion?

  6. Hi,

    Great plugins there, really love them. But i’m having a bit of trouble, the twitter and facebook connect plugins show double links on the login screen. Here the shot

    I’m using multisite feature plus theme my login. Are your connect plugins compatible with these features. Also testing the interface locally.

    Thanks Jasdeep

      1. Hey Roland,

        I’m having the same issue while on’s hosting solution. It only started after we switched to them, but it is something I haven’t been able to fix.

        Would you be able to help me?

        Thanks !!

      2. Hey buddy what’s your email? I am having problem of setting up link as one. So a user clicks the icon. I have to have icon then user clicks word below for action. Also I get error message after user clicks button. Any suggestions?

  7. Please write us a Support Ticket if you have any problem and we will figure out something. In the ticket please share detailed information, screenshot, URL or anything that can help.

    In additional in this week we will release a new free plugin for WordPress so stay tuned. :)

  8. Firstly, thanks for releasing this – it’s brilliant.

    I just have one question – Is there a way for this plugin to register a top level account across a multi-site installation or are accounts confined to individual sites?

    1. Sorry, but we haven’t tested it in multisite environment. I have never tried the multisite features of WordPress yet, but I will test it tomorrow and try to find solution for this.

  9. Hi all,

    We still encountered the following error in version 1.4.16 despite the author saying the error is fixed in 1.4.11

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class FacebookApiException in /home/pontee/public_html/ on line 107

      1. Hi Roland, I’m having the same problem with the latest version of the plugin – any chance you might have a fix for it?

        Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class FacebookApiException in /web/htdocs/www.***.com/home/wp-content/plugins/nextend-facebook-connect/sdk/base_facebook.php on line 113

  10. Is there any way to avoid having to “Allow access” each time a user logs in. It’s a little annoying, and not “one-click”. I noticed it’s the same here as well, so it’s likely not something I’m doing.

    1. Hey Roland,

      When people register to my website using their Facebook accounts it does not use their Facebook profile picture. It’s just the default mystery man picture. My site is :

      Any ideas?

  11. Getting this since I upgraded to the new 3.5rc1 release of WordPress:

  12. Hi Roland,

    Do users really need to authorize the Facebook or Google app every time they want to login? Wouldn’t it be much more user friendly if the website would auto recognize a returning visitor based on Facebook or Google login? Or at least the login process could skip the authorizing part if the user had already authorized.

    1. The Facebook works in this way for me. Also I found some possibilities for improvement in Google and Twitter, so the 1.4.23 version both of the plugin works with a real one-click login. :)

  13. Hi,

    behind the last update i have got some problems with the plugin.

    The following error massage is on my Page.

    Warning: Missing argument 5 for new_fb_insert_avatar() in /var/www/web1116/html/blog/wp-content/plugins/nextend-facebook-connect/nextend-facebook-connect.php on line 292

    Warning: Missing argument 5 for new_fb_insert_avatar() in /var/www/web1116/html/blog/wp-content/plugins/nextend-facebook-connect/nextend-facebook-connect.php on line 292

    Can anyone help?

    PS:The best Connect Plugin for WordPress

    1. Please try the following:
      Open wp-content\plugins\nextend-facebook-connect\trunk\nextend-facebook-connect.php
      Find this line

      function new_fb_insert_avatar( $avatar, $id_or_email, $size, $default, $alt ) {

      and replace with this:

      function new_fb_insert_avatar( $avatar = '', $id_or_email, $size = 96, $default = '', $alt = false ) {

      Please try it and write me the result. Thank you!

    1. I found that when I click on profile button, it log me out that why it redirect me back to login page again T___T

      Do you have any idea why this happen?

      Note that I use SSL on profile and login page and HTTP on the other page, Is this related?

      1. I’ve checked and found the problem is SSL, here the STR

        1. Login via SSL page and it successfully redirect to non-SSL url
        2. Click on profile link (This link is on SSL) than it log out automatically and redirect back to login page (SSL) and when click login again it redirect to login page again and again

        It will logout automatically when go to profile page with SSL enabled

        Do you have any idea how to fix this?

  14. Can you tell me when you’re going to implement the user to immediately enter their email address, using the Twitter login?
    I’m testing this with a dummy Twitter account and naturally, I’m going to receive any notifications since the Profile’s email address is a one.

    This is really important if a website is going to make maximum gain from notifications, signups, newsletters etc.
    I notice there’s another WP Plugin that does enforce the email popup directly after the Twitter authentication.

    1. This is a one-click login and register and this is why we not force the user with twitter to fill out the email address. I will try to figure out some easy solution for this. Please be patient.

  15. Hey is there any plans for this to work with Buddypress? I ask because Buddypress plugins like Welcome Pack do not work with your plugin. When a user traditionally registers by filling out the registration form, Welcome Pack would automatically befriend that user and send them a default message. This most important because it shows the user that notifications exist and generates interaction from the moment the user registers. Let me know, thanks!

    1. I tried it few weeks ago, but it worked with Buddypress. Can you contact with me on the support form with your site where I could check this problem?

  16. I keep receiving this:

    Twitter Error 1

    I’ve already deactivated the plugin, reinstalled, and reactivated it. I also deleted my Twitter application and recreated it.

    The only thing I can think of is since I first installed the Twitter plugin I was using a different directory than I am now. However, since I made the new directory I did update all my consumer keys and secrets. For example your Facebook and Google logins work fine.

    So what’s going on?

    Oh and btw when I tried to login using Twitter on this site I got:

    Twitter Error 2

  17. I think the Social Connect plugins are great! I installed them without any issues on my personal blog and as soon as I find the time, I plan on implementing them on my other sites too. Just popped over to say thanks for your hard work in developing the best Connect plugins I’ve come across so far.

  18. Nice plugin…i got errors!

    Please help!!!

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\xampp\htdocs\sites\wp-content\plugins\nextend-twitter-connect\sdk\tmhOAuth.php on line 581
  19. Very Nice and Clean plugin… i love it… thanks…

    Im new to wordpress… is it possible to put the buttons in the same line ?


  20. Hello,
    I’ve got some problems with the Facebook Login – plugin.
    If the users is already logged in with Facebook and clicks the “Login wit FB” button on the WP Login Screen – the site stops loading because of an “infinite loop” or in some cases throws “FacebookApiException Object : An active access token must be used to query information about the current user.” ? Any suggestions?

  21. Please write us a Support Ticket if you have any problem and we will figure out something. Usually we support via email not in comment form. In the ticket please share detailed information, screenshot, URL or anything that can help.

  22. In the latest version Nextend Twitter Connect will ask newly registered users for their valid email address. Twitter doesn’t provide this information, so it is required.

  23. Is there any action installed in the plugin that gets fired up when ever user registers using any of the three plugins.

    So that i can add functionality to change user and verify email address if it does not already exists.

    1. I do got an issue with the twitter login.
      When i try to register as for a new account i get to to the twitter sign in but then I return to the wp-login screen and it gives the error “please type your email adress”

      Any suggestions about what could be wrong?

        1. I also have the same issue with Michiel here. I understand if the user is new – thus the prompt of email address, what if the user has accounts on both My Site and Twitter? Then logins into My Site using Twitter BUT with the same email address as the one he/she registered on My Site? Of course, it’ll prompt the user that the email address he/she used for the Twitter Sign-in is already existing, thus preventing my user to login with a Twitter account. Also the REGISTERING OF EMAIL ADDRESS happens everytime a user attempts to login with their Twitter account, that won’t do because it will register another email address instead of just using the existing one – which is a hassle. I also found out that when a I’m logged-in into my Twitter account then I try to login with Twitter Sign-in in My Site this happens:

          1.) Authentication
          2.) Redirect to the page where Twitter asks for an email address

          I think it shouldn’t work that way since I’m already logged-in and authenticated by Twitter. My Twitter account should just sync with my account in My Site.

          These are my concerns regarding NTC, I wish you can give me a work around on this because I’ve been cracking my head for days on how to get NTC / Twitter to stop asking me and my users for an email address everytime we attempt to log-in with Twitter Sign-in.

          I’m also using your Nextend Facebook Connect and it works fine with the redirection, but I have one concern. Once I have logged-in using NFC then signs-out then logs-in again using NFC, I’am automatically signed-in into my account in My Site, which should not happen. This will allow other users to log-in into my account in My Site using NFC – only if they use the same computer as I did. Facebook must still need to authenticate the one that is attempting to log-in using NFC. This also happens even if I have logged-out my Facebook account in Facebook. Can you also please give me a work around on this one?

          I love to use your plugin for my site, so I hope you can give me a work around sooner than later.

          Thank you!

  24. Hi. Thanks for the cool plugin! I am having one problem with it. When trying to login with facebook, it puts this (#_=_ ) after the redirect url so it turns up 404. I just got the plugin so it has to be the latest version. Thank you for any help with this =]


  25. Hi Roland!

    I update plugin with last version (1.4.53), but Login with Google no longer works.

    When users click on login button (as opposed to Login with Twitter and / or Facebook) there is not any redirect to Google+ and the page is reloaded, as you can see here and in your site too 😉

    Fix the bug, please!

  26. I have added the plugin to a subdomained wordpress but then i get the following error

    Invalid or no certificate authority found, using bundled information

    Any idea how I can fix it?

  27. I have the facebook and google log in plugin installed and set up. Users can log in with facebook fine, but when I try with google I get the following text on the page –
    getElementById(‘fb-root’).appendChild(e); }());

    Any ideas?

  28. Getting a notice on the wp-login page:

    Notice: Undefined index: loginFacebook in /home/truth/www/dev/plugins/nextend-facebook-connect/nextend-facebook-connect.php on line 124

    Also this plugin seems to have turned on emailing me every time someone registers — is there a way to disable that?

  29. Hi, I love your plugins, they’re just what I needed. Is there a way to take the avatar from the user’s Facebook, Twitter or Google+ profiles depending on which account they use to connect or login. I don’t plan to use gravatar images so the profile pic should have to load everytime the user connects.

    Also, there seems to be some trouble when one of my users received this error when connecting with Facebook “Caught exception: An active access token must be used to query information about the current user.” I did received the same error when I first started using the plugin, but now it work for me.

    Thank you for your help.

  30. I have a very surious problem with registration from Google (as your site has) and i receive 2 errors from Twitter.
    Twitter Error 1
    Twitter Error 3

    Can you help me please?


  31. Registration with Google does not work for me, and – as @George Tsadimas said before – it doesn´t work on your site too! Facebook login works fine, I have not tried Twitter yet.

  32. on one website it work, on other it doesn’t… How come?? Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class FacebookApiException in /home/*****/public_html/wp-content/plugins/nextend-facebook-connect/sdk/base_facebook.php on line 113

  33. Hi! I was wondering where the html code for the buttons was stored. I wanted to remove the between the facebook and twitter buttons so they would be in-line.

  34. Hi! I’m getting these lines of error after I installed the plugin.

    Am I setting anything wrong? Or I’ve to change setting within the server?
    I’m using iPage, the version of WordPress is 3.5.1 and I’m using the newest version of Social Plugin.

  35. Hello,
    I am getting an error. The error is; “Caught exception: An active access token must be used to query information about the current user.”

    This happens when I try to initiate fb connection by using an image link as advised in nextend settings page.

    here is the url

    at the very top of the screen you will see “Giris Yap/Kayit Ol” if you click that and then click the FB link, you will get the same error I do.

    I am looking forward to get an answer.

  36. I am having an issue with the facebook login. I have the twitter login installed and working but facebook causes an error “HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.” I have deleted and recreated the facebook app with no luck. If you need to reach me please send an email to [email protected]

    What should be the solution? I want to use your plugin plz!

  40. Hi Roland, thank you for this great plugin. I have so many test and now I am super happy.

    For me, everything worked smoothly. Is there still a possibility, Linkedin and Xing to add?

    Thank you for the good work. A good donation will go out of course.


      1. Hi Rick,

        I would like to connect it to the Sidebar Login Plugin. You wrote, that you did that and it works fine.

        How did you do it?

        Would be really thankful for an answer.


  41. Another question, there is the possibility to remove the buttons from the form? I do not want the automatic setting, since I own forms and these insets there manually by code.

    Thank you. Cheers

  42. HI, this is 99% brilliant, I’m now WP genius or expert” But, have got user registration working, but when trying to leave a comment it tells me I must be logged in, when tryign the Connect by Twitter option I get no errors, but the user isn’t logged in – is this a WP settings issue or is it something I’ve done wrong on set up? any help would be great, sharing your widget and work this far is awesome thanks :)

  43. Hi,

    Thanks you for your effort for providing us the nice plugin.

    I’ve a trouble to Google Connect (v 1.4.58). It says “Error: redirect_uri_mismatch”. The reason behind is that I am using a security plugin “Better WP Security” which changes the default login url (wp-login.php) to a custom one. I found in the code that redirect url has been coded as:

    function new_google_login_url() {
      return site_url('wp-login.php') . '?loginGoogle=1';

    Shouldn’t be it like as follows?

    function new_google_login_url() {
      $wp_login_url = wp_login_url();
      return ( $wp_login_url . ( ( false !== strpos($wp_login_url, '?') ? '&amp;' : '?' ) ) . 'loginGoogle=1' );

    Your thoughts please.


  44. Hi,
    I recently installed Nextend Twitter Connect & Nextend Facebook Connect on several WordPress blogs, and I think they are great. WordPress and Nextend plugins are the newest revisions available. What I’m noticing though is:
    1. Nextend Twitter Connect does not bring in an avatar. The meta_key “twitter_profile_picture” meta_value “url” from wp_usermeta for the user does not display in a standalone browser.
    2. Nextend Facebook Connect does bring in an avatar. The meta_key “fb_profile_picture” meta_value “url” from wp_usermeta for the user does display in a standalone browser as well.
    3. However if a user logs in with Nextend Facebook Connect then later attempts to log in with Nextend Twitter Connect it will give the enter an email address prompt, then when they put their 1 and only email address in, it displays “ERROR: This email is already registered, please choose another one.” and does not log them in.
    4. Its been a long day at work, but I believe if a user logs in with Nextend Twitter Connect (standard behavior listed in #1 above) then later attempts to log in with Nextend Facebook Connect it works fine but both meta_keys “twitter_profile_picture” & “fb_profile_picture” and their associated meta_values will be in wp_usermeta but neither will display in WordPress.
    Let me know what you think and/or if I can avail myself to help you debug this. I’m most appreciative of your efforts – Thanks!

  45. I just installed these plug-ins on my wordpress site, and for some reason the buttons aren’t showing up on the login page?

    Thanks in advance!

  46. Hey,
    I upgraded wordpress to 3.6 might have raised any problems.
    Because it is giving the following error:
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class FacebookApiException in /hermes/bosweb/web197/b1972/ipg.heberpcl/wp-content/plugins/nextend-facebook-connect/sdk/base_facebook.php on line 113

  47. hi sir,
    i downloaded and extracted the facebook login zip file in wordpress plugins directory,then i don’t know how to activate the plugins and integrate plz help me
    my mail id:[email protected]

  48. Hi. Great plugin. Out of the three or so Social Login plugins, yours is the only one that works. However, as soon as I installed the plugin, spammers began registering for the site. I noticed that they do not have First or Last names…these fields are blank in WordPress. Is there anyway to stop these kinds of users? Maybe adding a recaptcha or requiring real names?

  49. Hello and congratulations on your plugins are very nice achievements.
    I have a question of aesthetic order, indeed default buttons are aligned one under the other.
    But now, I think it takes too much space in a registration page, I want it now be aligned horizontally.
    I tried to change the css files, but I’m not very good because there is no work, they are still focused on each other.
    Thank you for your help

  50. Great plug in and setup instructions. ‘My only problem installing was not reading your directions. ‘

    Any plans on adding a Linkedin connect?

  51. Nextend Google Connect Plugin is very good.
    but when click the button to connect with google, the message “Google PHP API Client requires the CURL PHP extension”
    What happened?

  52. Logout is not completely clearing the session. For example, I can logout while being connected via Facebook and my redirect works perfectly, taking me back to the same page I was on. But when I click the Facebook button again to connect, it connects without prompting me. The session needs to be completely cleared every time you logout.

  53. Yes please, tested on your demo site, and multiple of my site and notice facebook doesn’t clear the session when u log out from wp. You log out from facebook completely, and you realise you still can log out then re-login into your website without prompting for password.

    Even if you have login to your website in another person’s account, your website is still reflecting first account.

    Can’t use this plugin till this bug is resolved. I’ve emailed you guys support too, and also in wordpress forum, hope someone will acknowledge this soon!

    1. I had the same problem as Dave described. The fix should be very easy… simply remove the cookie “nextend_uniqid” from the browser upon logout, then it would prevent subsequent automatic logon without validating with Facebook. Not sure why this hasn’t been fixed yet.

  54. Same problem here. Can I get more details beyond the Login error! message? I entered the appid and secret key. Followed the directions on the installation and settings area.

    1. Send me your email I and I will send you the code. Essentially its the code of the simple link, and there where it says, Click here to login or register with google, you add the code of the button, before the a link wrapper

  55. Hi there. Great plugin! I have installed and set up the plugin for Twitter and it works great. I’m having issue with the one for Google, though. I get the following errors messages after accepting the request for permission of the application I created:

    Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/tmp//apiClient/ad/ad41610b13f338f946b8e9e744ec68f0.lock) is not within the allowed path(s): (/usr/home/ in /usr/home/ on line 37

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /usr/home/ in /usr/home/ on line 146

    Could you help me solve it? I don’t really know if the problem is on my end.

  56. Hi, thanks for your plugin. I have installed the login with FB plugin. How do I put the buttons where I want them. I need a register with FB button in my registration page, login with FB on other pages, and link to FB on other pages.

    Thanks for your help.

  57. Any idea why nextend facebook connect isn’t using the same new account email template as woocommerce is?
    Nextend facebook new account Email looks now likes this:
    Username: Facebook – username
    Password: VZTK3DvwI4Nj

    Where can I edit this? I need to at least change that login url.

  58. was able to build the social login and link buttons but they dont click to anywhere. how do i add the a href link to the div code?

    also can these api’s be used to link social accounts in order to send social messages from user accounts?

  59. Hi, thx a lot for this plugin. And thanks again for providing it for free.
    I only have a minor issue: the email notification function on registration is triggered too soon. I can’t use first and last name in custom emails because the notification is sent before the profile update.

    wp_new_user_notification($ID, $random_password);
    $user_info = get_userdata($ID);
        'ID' =&gt; $ID,
        'display_name' =&gt; $user_profile['name'],
        'first_name' =&gt; $user_profile['first_name'],
        'last_name' =&gt; $user_profile['last_name']

    And happy festive season, by the way :)

  60. Hi
    I am having a problem with Facebook Connect and BuddyPress. The profile is created fine but you cannot access the buddypress members profile page. You get a page not found error.

  61. This is a great plugin !!! But i still have a problem with redirect after login, it return a blank page “Login error”
    Can you give me a solutions for this ! Thanks a lot

  62. Good afternoon, I am having trouble being able to get the Google Login plugin to work. At first I thought it might be the app, but then, when I came to your site, found that your’s worked. Then that lets me know that something is wrong on my end. Could you please send me an e-mail so that you might be able to help me with what might be wrong.

    As well, might be having a similar problem with the twitter plugin. As for the Facebook one, that one seems to be working just fine.

  63. Hi,

    I have an issue when creating my Facebook app. When i had my App Domain, I have a red warning icon with the following message “This must be derived from Canvas URL, Secure Canvas URL, Site URL, Mobile Site URL, Page Tab URL ou Secure Page Tab URL. Check and correct the following domains:”.

    I had my domain name ( ) but it looks like something doesn’t work. Any idea ? Thanks.

  64. Google connect, Version 1.4.58
    Google says:
    Important: OAuth 1.0 has been officially deprecated as of April 20, 2012. It will continue to work as per our deprecation policy but we encourage you to migrate to OAuth 2.0 as soon as possible.

  65. i already installed on my site. when i register using facebook with same email address on another account on site. its successfully linked. but when i register using another email account. its say :

    The page isn’t redirecting properly

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

    URL on browser :

    i already clear cache and cookies

  66. Is it possible to note on the user profile which page the Login button was clicked? For example, if someone is on the “About Us” page, I’d like for it to note that in a custom field on the user’s profile.

  67. hi,

    I got “Login error!” msg when I tried login using fb login. I’d check my – In your FB Developers App
    Settings >> Security – (All checked)

    YES – Client OAuth Login
    NO – App Secret Proof for Server API calls
    NO – Embedded browser OAuth Login
    NO – Require 2-factor reauthorization

    but not sure how to do this -> Don’t for get to set Better WP to:
    Disable “Filter Suspicious Query Strings” option
    Disable “Reduce comment spam” option
    Disable “Prevent long URL strings” option

  69. Dear Sir

    Since last 3 days i am searching solution on the web but there isn’t any solution on the web and also not on your support page of WordPress Plugin Site…

    Google Connect Works Perfect…..

  70. Hi!
    In my site ( ) I use Nextend Facebook, Twitter and Google+ Connect.
    From some days Google+ Connect plugin does not work anymore I guess ’cause of the old version of the Google APIs used (plugin use 0.3, but last is 0.6.7 with oAuth2 support)
    I therefore ask when an update is available so you can use it again.

    +    do_action('nextend_twitter_user_account_linked', $current_user-&gt;ID, $resp, $tmhOAuth);
  74. Hi, I’m sure that it’s something simple, but I can’t seem to get the image? The link works but shows as a broken page instead of a pretty button. Help much appreciated! Thanks!

    Thanks in advance.

  87. Hi. Wonderful plugin!
    Google+ Avatar was not working.
    Here it is thei fix for file nextend-google-connect.php:241

    //update_user_meta($ID, 'google_profile_picture', 'http://profiles....
    $picasa_id = $u['id'];
    $url = ''.$picasa_id.'?alt=json';
    $data = file_get_contents($url);
    $d = json_decode($data);
    $avatar = $d-&gt;{'entry'}-&gt;{'gphoto$thumbnail'}-&gt;{'$t'};
    update_user_meta($ID, 'google_profile_picture', $avatar);
    1. Hi!
      There seem to be a problem with the line:
      $avatar = $d->{‘entry’}->{‘gphoto$thumbnail’}->{‘$t’};

      It stops my sites from working. Any ideas?

  88. Hey I love the plugin but it seems to take over gravatar options. i’d rather it only use fb profile pic if they connect with facebook. I have a ton of friends that have gravatar accounts and have registered manually. am i just seeing my photo for every gravatar option in discussion settings because im logged in or?

  89. Hello!
    I have a problem on m website with the plugin.
    When I log in with facebook or google, I get redirected to the homepage instead of being redirected to the page I was on.

    What can it be?

    My site is in Hebrew so I think you won’t understand a thing there 😛

    Thank you,

  90. Hey!

    I have another problem on my website:
    When i revoke my access on google and try to register again through nextend google, I get redirected to my home page.

    It doesn’t happen when I don’t revoke access. It’ll only happen when I don’t have permissions access from my google account yet.

    Any suggestions?

  91. When people log into my website, I don’t want Nextend to just log whoever is logged into Facebook at the time. I see that along with a lot of others as a security hazard. When you click the login Facebook link, I want Nextend to have Facebook re-authenticate the user by making them retype in their password if they are already logged in. How do we go about adding Re-authenticate?

    I assume it would have to deal something around Facebook’s Reauth login flow makeup that you are using.

  92. How do I have my wordpress fetch the download for the latest update? It keeps saying “Download failed. couldn’t connect to host”. I’m hoping that will fix my login issues on

  93. Hello, and thanks for a nice plugin!

    When a new user register with FB and there is no e-mail transferred, I’m not able to update the users profile in WordPress as the e-mail is missing (required information in WordPress usersetup). Any suggestions to solve this?

    1. I still have the open question and hope for an answer:

      How do I avoid a user registers with Facebook without simultaneously getting the user’s e-mail address registered in WordPress?

      I have installed these two plugins: “Register Plus Redux” and “Nextend Facebook Connect”.

      Each time a new user registers with “Nextend Facebook Connect” and not simultaneously accept the transfer of his email address to WP, the field “email” in WP is empty even though it is a required field in the WP user registration setup. It will cause the problem that I am not able to change the user information’s afterwards, as the e-mail field is a required field.

      Any ideas on how I can solve this?

      I use:
      WP version 4.1.1.
      Nextend Facebook Connect version 1.5.4.
      Register Plus Redux version 4.1.1.

  94. hi your demo looks great and i would like to use your plugin.
    But when i click the link on my site i got always a blank page with login error! on it.
    any clue?

  95. HI,

    want to know how to change the redirection of url. i did not want it to redirect to the dashboard of back end. or where can i supposed to redirect base on what page i want. the option inside the settings is not working. or maybe i do it wrong.

  96. Hi,

    I just want existing users to use the plugins to ease their signing in and take advantage of Google’s 2 factor authentication. I do not want new users to sign up for anything. Is this possible using your plugin and if so how do I configure it?

  97. I suppose this app works but what a pain in the ass!!! Some documentation would be nice. I’ve spent about 6 hours combing forums trying to figure out why I’m getting this error and I’m really frustrated. I’ve installed the Nextend FB connect plug in and followed the instructions. When I try to log into my site, it takes me to FB so that I can sign in, I sign in and then a blank page comes up with just the words “login error!”

  98. Hi there i wonder ig you can help

    I download a wordpress theme and your nextend google/facebook/twitter/ connect buttons were included however i cant seem to get them to work the site is if i try with facebook or google i get

    The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

    any ideas please

  99. I just love this ultimate plugin.
    You said right that most of the people seem registration process as a headache. At present, competition is really tough because number of websites belonging to same subjects are being hosted on internet and hence visitor will take not even single minute to switch another site if don’t get directly what he was searching for.

    Thanks for providing this useful plugin for free. As such, maximum of the theme & plugin providers don’t provide free stuffs but fortunately sources like nextendweb,
    and others are also available here to give the same at free of cost.

  100. Hey!

    I’m loving the plugin thus far; interestingly I have a student who has a profile on my site she has linked her profile to FB but every time she logs in it creates a new WordPress account.

    This is pretty strange as in my case I have linked my profile with my FB account and when I log in it doesn’t create a new account. I was wondering if it could be due to the students e-mail being different on her account at Jardin Culturel and her Facebook email.

    Any advice for trouble shooting the problem would be really appreciated!

    Thanks for the great plugins :)


  101. Hi i am working on a wordpress multi site i installed your plugin but when i click to connect with facebook it redirect me to login.php with a blank page. Kindly help me about this

    Something went wrong with the plugin API.

    An error occurred while installing Nextend Facebook Connect:

    I purchased themeforest Flat Responsive WooCommerce Theme

      1. Same problem here. When I search on WordPress Repository, there’s no Plugin there. Anything about Facebook and other social plugins from Nextend. :(

  103. Hello,

    I’m getting a Login error! blank page. Everything seems to be correctly configured. What may be the reason please? Thank you in advance

  104. Hello,

    I have the FB connect configured correctly but how does the simple link work? When I paste it in a page it doesn’t actually connect to FB. It just reloads the page basically.


  105. I am using this plugin, I successfully login with facebook account but I cant get email, first name and last name, anybody can tell me how I can get it?

    1. Hi SHAH JAFFAR!

      Google changed a lot, so you should rather follow these steps:
      1. Go here:
      2. Create an empty project
      3. Go to APIs & auth -> Credentials
      4. Click on Add credentials -> OAuth 2.0 client ID
      5. Click on Configure consent screen
      6. Give a Product name -> Save
      7. Choose Web application for Application type
      8. Give your website’s address, and the callback url from our backend, which looks like this:
      9. Click on Create
      10. Copy ID and Secret
      11. Paste them into our backend. You can leave the Google API key empty, as I see, it works without it, and that’s it, you can use the buttons.
