Social login – an update

We’ve been running with the social login plugin for a day or two and I’d like to give some updated guidance to those of you who want to use it. Please read further…

If you are an existing user….

In other words, you already have an account here at Sharksworld with an existing username and password, then you will want to link your social (Facebook or Twitter) account to that existing account. The easiest way to do that is as follows:

  1. Log in to Sharksworld as usual (with username and password).
  2. Go to your .
  3. Scroll down to where it says “Connect your account to one or more social networks”
  4. Click the button for Facebook or Twitter as appropriate and sign in to your account there. You’ll only need to do this step once.
  5. Once the setup completes, you’ll see a little green tick on the logo you clicked. That means you are correctly linked.
  6. Now you can log out and then log in again with your FaceBook or Twitter account from the login page. You’ll be connected to the correct profile when you do.

If you are a new user….

In other words, you already have a Facebook or Twitter account, but haven’t signed up for a Sharksworld account, the process is as follows:

  1. Click the Facebook or Twitter button on the login page (or on the comments form) and follow the prompts to sign into your account.
  2. This will create you a new Sharksworld account, linked to your Facebook or Twitter login.
  3. Twitter only: We require an email address for all Sharksworld users; however, Twitter does not share email addresses. Thus if you register using your Twitter account, you will be prompted to provide your email address before your new account can be created. If you see a message saying that the email address is already in use, it means you already have a Sharksworld account and should rather follow the steps above.

Please contact me if you have any problems.
