LinkedIn Login

The plugin enhances the usability of the WordPress website. As the name suggests, the plugin helps to add a ‘login with LinkedIn feature’ on the site. Once the plugin is setup and activated, it will allow new users to create an account on the website through their LinkedIn login credentials. Similarly, the existing website users will be able to login to the dashboard through the LinkedIn email and password. The plugin accomplishes this by matching the LinkedIn email ID to the registered email ID on the WordPress website. The administrator needs to enter the LinkedIn API key and the Secret key on the settings page to activate the plugin. The process to create the API key and the secret key is given below:

  • Go here to create a new application. Fill the name and description as deem fit.
  • Add the domain name and URL in the Integration field. The website domain should match with the current hostname localhost.
  • Replace \”OAuth 2.0 Redirect URLs:\” to http://example.com/wp-login.php (replace example.com with your domain name).
  • Create the application and you will see the API and the Secret key. Copy them to the plugin setup and activate it.

The LinkedIn Login page will be setup.
