Twitter

You can allow your members to sign in to your community using their Twitter account.

To start the process, go to AdminCP -> System -> Login & Registration, click Create New to setup a new login method and choose Twitter. You will now be prompted to fill in some details which you'll need to acquire by creating an "app" with Twitter.

 

Creating a Twitter App

1. Go to the Twitter Application Management site and sign in with your Twitter account.

2. Click Create New App and fill out the form. For the Website field, enter the URL to your community. For the Callback URLs field enter the value shown in your AdminCP, which will be your community's URL ending with "/oauth/callback/" on the end.

3. Go to the Settings tab and make sure the Allow this application to be used to Sign in with Twitter checkbox is checked. Then also provide a value for the Privacy Policy URL and the Terms of Service URL (you can create pages for these in your AdminCP under System -> Terms & Privacy Policy if you haven't already). Make sure you click Update Settings to save.
