Members: Twitter Login

Logs in users using Twitter oAuth


Automatically creates account and logs in the user.


  • Symphony CMS version 2.7.x and up (as of the day of the last release of this extension)
  • Members extension version 1.9.0


  • git clone / download and unpack the tarball file
  • Put into the extension directory
  • Enable/install just like any other extension

You can also install it using the extension downloader.

For more information, see http://getsymphony.com/learn/tasks/view/install-an-extension/


  • Enable the extension
  • Create a new Member section with only a email field (no password)
    • Optionally, create a input/textarea/textbox field for the Twitter handle
  • Set the required configuration values:



'memberstwitterlogin' => array( 'key' => 'REPLACE ME', 'secret' => 'REPLACE ME', 'twitter-handle-field' => 'REPLACE ME with a field id if you want to save the twitter handle', ),



  • Create a page and attach the "Members: Twitter login" event on it
  • Create the login form:

html <form action="/twitter/" method="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="/twitter/" /> <input type="hidden" name="members-section-id" value="<Your section id>" /> <input type="hidden" name="member-twitter-action[login]" value="Login" /> <button>Log in with Twitter</button> </form>

This form will redirect the user to twitter and then twitter will redirect the user your redirect url set in your twitter app setting.

  • Add another form to handle the actual log in process when the user comes back from twitter. This form can be auto-submitted

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

  • If everything works, the user will be redirected to the 'redirect' value, just like the standard Members login.
