WP Steam Auth

WP Steam Auth | hwk


This plugin will let your visitors register & login to your WordPress via their Steam account using one and unique button.

All new authentification will create a new WordPress legacy user and will be automatically logged in the process. Once they are registered via Steam, users may login to your WordPress using the same Steam button.

Old WP users (registered before the plugin activation) have the possibility to synchronize their account with Steam once loggedin with the legacy WordPress system.

Note: WP Steam Auth Plugin is fully compatible with WordPress & Buddypress. Steam profile data is stored in the WP_user meta data. WP Steam Auth doesn’t interfere with the legacy WP Login/Registration system, it means that you’ll be always able to login with the legacy method.
