Before we start to answer the question let first understand how wishlist member registration is working.
Wishlist Member Registration Process
Wishlist Member registration in cobined out of two parts: 1. Payment (if it’s a not a free membership website) 2. Registration to the WordPress platform using a special form that add the new user to the new level.
Social Login Registration and Login Process
Social Login is a WordPress plugin was created by OneAll.Com website. You can download the WordPress from the WordPress codex at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/oa-social-login/ In order to use the plugin you will need to create a free account on oneall.com and configure you social login details for each platform you want to use. When using the social login plugin with WordPress all it’s does is creating a new user based on the Facebook details and add it the user list on WordPress. if a user with same email is already exist then social login will not create a duplicate use but will just login to the exiting user using the facebook account.
Social Login with Wishlist Member
When you try to combine those two together you will be facing some problems: The first problem that as I far know can’t be solved is that social login will create a user if it’s doesn’t exist that’s mean that every one with a Facebook account can log to your website. The new user will not have access to any level unless to define it manually thought the users menu on WordPress. The second thing you should because Wishlist Member is using a special registration form to register new users and add them to specific level, you use social login to do that will automatically. On the same point if a user has already been created using the regular Wishlist Member registration process he can easily login using his Facebook account.
Social Login is a great plugin for login to your website using different social networks but when you try to combine it with Wishlist Member you should know the problem you are facing. If you build your website has a free level or you want to manually define the correct member level for each user after he register then you can use social login plugin. But if you want that all the sale process will be done automatically than social plugin is not the solution.
