We’ve seen that some users somehow get lost while setting up the configuration to properly work with Social Media Logins.
So, before we get started, remember that for this step you have to be fully working with SSL. If you haven’t configured it yet, it’s recommended to conclude this step and then follow the steps below.
First Let’s start with the Google Login
Let’s then create a New Project to configure our Google+ Button. First, Go to your Google APIs Dashboard and Start a Project
Then, Let’s give a name to our project, simply to be easier to identify in case you’ve added more projects to your GoogleAPIs
After having defined your Project name, you’ll be redirected to your new Project Dashboard with some more options… Let’s enable the API and Services right above.
Now, let’s find the Social Login to our Google+ and enable it.
Click on the Enable Button
Now that we have enabled our Google+ API, we’ll have to create the credential to add to our Nextend Google
Set the API as followed below…
Click on the What credentials do I need?
Now, it’s time to define your API name, add your Website URL, and copy the link address of your Google+ Button on your Signup Homepage.
After adding these credentials, simply click to Create your client ID
Add your Product name that will be shown to your users and click on Continue.
Now, you can copy your Client ID and paste it into your Nextend Google. Click on the Done Button.
You’ll be redirected to your Credential Panel, where you’ll be able to manage more settings in your application.
Find your Client ID and click on its name…
You’ll get a full detail of your application, and here we’ll copy the Client Secret and add it to our Nextend Google
Go back to your Credential Panel and let’s verify our Domain in our application.
Insert the URL of your Website to verify your Domain.
After having done this, Let’s back to our Credential Panel and set our API Key.
Copy your API Key and paste it into your Nextend Google, and also, it’s recommended to restrict the key.
Follow the example below to restrict your API Key. After that, you can click on Save Button.
Now, let’s test our Google+ Login in our Website Homepage Signup and see if everything works as expected.
Perfect! Everything is working as expected.
