Hi guys!

Well,I´m using this third party plugin to let the users connect to my site via Facebook, Twitter or Google. It works perfect outside the forum, but when you are inside it the connection doesn´t always work if to try to login. It´s weird cause it worked perfectly when I installed...but now sometimes work and sometimes shit happens. 

So, not sure what to do. I upgraded from V5 to 5.05, but not sure if that´s the problem..

I read in this post that there´s the chance to make the same with rpx, but I would like to keep on with Social Connect and change if I don´t have another chance...

Gracias!!!

Yes SP has the Janrain/RPX system built in.
I suppose two questions... what does 'shit happens' actually mean.
And how does this plugin make the connection for login?

Thanks Yellow Swordfush, and sorry for the rudeness.

Social Connect what actually does is connect with the social network and automatically creates the user in my wordpress database. In this case this works in all the website except in the forum area. When you hit the button, the pop up that makes the connection works fine, but then miss that second refresh of the website with the logged URL. 

Don´t know if I explained correctly. I´m spanish...

I could send you the link by PM if you want. Thanks again!

Without knowing how this plugin makes the connection back to the various servers it is hard to say what the problem may be but I would start by turning off the forum login link and underlying form. Edit the spHead.php template in your SP theme folder and comment out the login button - that's the template function sp_LogInOutButton(). See if that helps.

Then I suspect we can only really advise when we know what mechanisms are at work here. What happens and what does this plugin call - and how - when someone clicks on it. Perhaps you could ask the authors?

Hi again. Sorry but I think made something wrong before. I have try again disabling the login button of the forum, and now it works. You can´t make the login in the forum itself, but that´s a minor problem. Thanks again!!  I´ll post you more doubts about the forum shortly laugh
