Release Notes

Release highlights

Dynamically add a logged in user to a user group if they have not yet linked any social media presence to their Joomla user account. This optional feature allows you to display a module or other interface element to ask the user to link their social media presence with their user account, making it easier for them to log into your site if they forget their password.

The LinkedIn integration has been removed. LinkedIn v2 API -- forced upon all users since December 2018 -- no longer returns an email address. As a result it is impossible to create new user accounts or log in users who have not yet linked their Joomla user account with their LinkedIn presence. In lack of a workable solution we decided to remove this integration altogether.

We fixed a handful of bugs. Most importantly, we addressed an issue with the new Facebook API that prevented SocialLogin from creating new Joomla user accounts.

For more information and documentation for administrators, users and developers please consult the documentation Wiki.

Joomla and PHP Compatibility

Akeeba Social Login is compatible with Joomla! 3.8 and 3.9. It's also compatible with PHP 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3.

We strongly recommend using the latest published Joomla! version and PHP 7.2 for optimal security of your site.
