Social Login - Live (Microsoft)

Back to User Guides

Once you allow Microsoft Live users to authenticate their login with the WordPress Questions and Answers, they will be able to submit questions or answers to your forum.

Microsoft Live Social Login

This setting can be customized to specifically allow Microsoft Live authentication within the plugin settings panel (the feature required that Curl is enabled. Please check the server information tab). If this setting is left empty, the Microsoft Live option will not appear. To register your site with Microsoft Live , the admin must do the following steps:

  1. Create Microsoft Live application at https://account.live.com/developers/applications/index.
  2. Remember to enter App Domains (your-domain).
  3. Make sure that callback URL is set to your homepage.
  4. Choose option “No” for question about whether application is for mobile devices.

Next, navigate to plugin settings Social Login tab.
