Register in Wordpress with Twitter account (Wordpress plugin)
Wordpress Login is a Wordpress plugin that will allow users to register into a Wordpress website with a Twitter account in one single click.
How it works?
See Wordpress with Twitter account Full Documentation for full documentation
Download the plugin and upload it to your
pluginsfolder as you would do with any other Wordpress plugin
Create a new app at Twitter here
Copy the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret and paste them in
$saltvariable to something long and complicated
Optionally, you can change the username prefix to something else to increase security
To see if a user is logged in through Twitter run
is_user_logged_in() and then check if the username matches the Twitter prefix (
tw- by default).
Retrieving user information
To retrieve the current user's data do something like this:
global $current_user; get_currentuserinfo(); echo 'Hello ' . $current_user->nickname; echo 'User token: ' . $current_user->oauth_token; echo '<img src="' . $current_user->profile_image_url . '" alt="" />';
To retrieve data from someone else do something like this:
$user_info = get_userdata($user_id); echo 'Username: ' . $user_info->nickname;
