Modules | ID Social

The IgnitionDeck Social Extension (ID Social) makes it possible for IgnitionDeck Commerce members to register for and log into their Member Dashboard using their Facebook account.  For sites running IgnitionDeck Enterprise, this means that people can sign up with their Facebook login to create crowdfunding campaigns.

Installation of ID Social

NOTE: In order for ID Social to work properly, your email address in Settings > General must match the email address of the Facebook account you use to create your Facebook App ID.

  1. Once you have purchased the ID Social Extension, download it from your dashboard under the Licenses tab.
  2. Install ID Social to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory and activate it. This can be done by either uploading with FTP and then activating via the WordPress Plugins screen,  or via WordPress’ Plugin Uploader found in Plugins > Add New.  You will now have a new link in your IgnitionDeck settings area called “Social.”

  1. Go to IgnitionDeck » Social and activate the applicable social icons under Social Sharing Settings* for sharing options to be made available on the projects.
    * Sharing on Facebook requires a Facebook Application ID
  2. Sharing can be enabled on regular WP posts and pages by checking the corresponding options.
  3. For sites using the 500 Framework or a 500 child theme, there is also an option to enable social network links in the footer area of the site. Enable the options to be used and enter the corresponding ID for the social account:
