How to use in 3 steps

1. Create a new Member section

Create a new Member section with the following fields:

  • Member: Email (required)
    make sure, the handle of the field is email
  • Text Input for username (optional)
  • Text Input for firstname (optional)
  • Text Input for lastname (optional)
  • Date Field for 'registered since' (optional)

Go to 'System' -> 'Preferences' and add the Member section to the 'Active Members Section'.

After this open the config.php and add the required configuration values:



'membersgooglelogin' => array( 'client-id' => 'REPLACE ME', 'client-secret' => 'REPLACE ME', 'client-redirect-url' => 'https://example.org/google/', // The redirect URI (see next step) 'members-section-id' => 5, // ID of the above created Member section 'member-username-field' => '10', // Field ID (optional) 'member-firstname-field' => '11', // Field ID (optional) 'member-lastname-field' => '12', // Field ID (optional) 'member-registered-since' => '13', // Field ID (optional) ),



2. Create a new page (Redirect URI)

Create a new page (e.g. "Google") and attach the event Members: Google Login on it.

Add the following form to the new page to handle the log in process when the user will successfully redirected from Google:

xslt <xsl:if test="string-length(/data/params/url-code) != 0"> <form id="googleform" method="POST" action="{$current-url}/"> <input type="hidden" name="code" value="{/data/params/url-code}" /> <button>Validate</button> </form> <script>if (window.googleform) googleform.submit();</script> </xsl:if>

Add the following login form to a desired page (e.g. the home page):

xslt <form action="{$root}/google/" method="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="{$root}" /> <input type="hidden" name="member-google-action[login]" value="Login" /> <button>Log in with Google</button> </form>

This form will redirect to the new page /google/ and the user will see the Google dialog and then Google will redirect the user to the 'Redirect URI' value.

If everything works, the user will be redirected to the 'redirect' value, just like the standard Members login (e.g. Log in via form).

3. Create a Google API Console Project

Go to the Google API Console.

Create a New Project:

  • Enter the Project Name
  • Click the Create button

Select Credentials under the APIs & Services section in the left side navigation panel.

Select the OAuth consent screen tab:

  • Enter the name of your Application
  • Choose an email address for user support
  • Enter in Authorized domains the domain(s), which will be allowed to authenticate using OAuth
  • Click the Save button

Select the Credentials tab, click the Create credentials drop-down menu and select OAuth client ID:

  • Select Web application
  • Enter the above created page in Authorized redirect URIs field (e.g. https://example.org/google/)
  • Click the Create button
