Social media log in?

pls scream inside your heart ⚧
Most sites and forums these days enable social media log ins, where you essentially sync up your Facebook or Twitter with the site's registration in order to create a profile and post content. I'm just wondering if you've ever considered adding this function to the forum, David?

Using Facebook to login was available for a couple years but I disabled it as it was causing some latency issues with page loading. The API has changed so the issues may have been fixed, so I may consider restoring it. It wasn't used that much however and no one mentioned missing it when it was disabled a couple years ago.

Hi David,
Times have changed now, (two years) and it would encourage more users me thinks.

The new Facebook API change requires the latest updated vBulletin version. I was planning on updating during a break after the tour, I'll include turning back on the Facebook integration at that time.
