    Hi,
    I'm setting up a new website and I want to use Social login, the problem is the plugin that I want to use uses the following URL to connect:

    https://www.xxxxxx.com/wp-login.php...9aHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cubG9xdWV2ZW5kZXMuY29t

    So the problem is, for other plugins I know can modify /usr/local/nginx/conf/wpincludes/domain.com and just add something like:

    location ~* /wp-content/plugins/xxxxxxxxx {
    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php.conf;
    }

    Wordpress - Social login plugin trouble

    But in this case I'm not sure if I need to find another plugin that doesn't use wp-login.php?apsl_login_id.

    I don't want to remove the protection to wp-login.php so I want to know if there's any other option?

    Thank you for your help and suggestions.

    wp-login.php HTTP password protection is really only suited for single owner/user login wordpress sites. If you have member/users logging in, then you need to disable wp-login.php password protection.

    Thank you!! Well :( I think I will have to find a different plugin and change the theme code then.
    I have 2 other themes using other Social Login and I can add the exception to /usr/local/nginx/conf/wpincludes/domain.com because they don't use wp-login.php

    Thank you for your help! :)
