Single Sign On for New Users - Follow Up

Hi,

This is a follow up to my last post "Single Sign On For New Users". For some reason I cannot reply through the previous thread which would have been easier. Here is a copy of my last post including your reply:

"Single Sign on for new users

Hi,

I was hoping new users would be able to login to my site using their linkedin ID and Password, and that their information would be mapped across to jomsocial thereafter.

When testing this component and integrating to a linkedin profile, a new user is then redirected to my site (jomsocial) registration form and required to fill out all fields?

Is there a way to bypasss my site registration and allow new users to login directly with their linkedin details?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Re: Single Sign on for new users

Chris,
I believe you mean you want the user's account to automatically be created when they click the Login With LinkedIn button. If so, that feature is coming. LinkedIn's developer tools did not allow us to fetch the user's email address until very recently (August, in fact). Once they enabled that, we immediately released the latest version which allows the user's email address to be imported for an easier registration process. Without the email, previously, we always had to show the registration form so the user could enter it (since you can't create a Joomla account without one).

The next release, due out in a few months, will have the automatic registration/account creation process I think you're looking for. That's been a part of our Facebook extension for years, and is definitely one of the most popular features. We've been very excited that LinkedIn now allows access to the email address (it was a bit of surprise when they added it), but not it will take a little more time for us to implement all the features that that allows.

Existing users on your site can easily associate their existing account with their LinkedIn account to allow for single sign-on access in the future. That ability exists in the current release of JLinked.

Hope that explains. As always, we have a 30-day money back guarantee. If you aren't happy, feel free to request a refund.
If you use JFBConnect or JLinked, please post a rating and a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory:"


I am following up to see if this feature had been added, and to find out how I can upgrade? I checked my subscription and see there is a subscriber id for updates but im not sure how to upgrade and the documentation is confusing.

Please advise
Thanks
Chris

Chris,
Posts are automatically closed after 30-days of inactivity. It makes things easier to prevent users from responding to really old posts that may not be relevant to newer versions of our extensions.

As to your question, the new release hasn't come out yet. We were hoping to get it out earlier in January, but got sidetracked with some big changes for both JFBConnect and JLinked. We're in the process of unifying the profile plugins for both extensions which will make future development an new features easier to implement. Both new releases will also support Joomla 3.0, which is also delaying things a little.

One thing to note is that, going along with our announcement blog post back in August, the next major releases of our extensions will not support Joomla 1.5. If you're still using Joomla 1.5, the current release of JLinked will be the last, unless there are bugs or security updates that are required.

Hope that helps answer your question,
Alex
