    Hi guys,
    At first, I failed to install this plugin, but finally it works like a charm. In my opinion, the reason why I failed was that I used the same email as the one I had registered in my moodle site. I'm not sure! Let consider, guys!

    I've configured Facebook, Gmail, and Github. I don't get any errors, but after I log in and give the app permission, it returns to the home page with "You are not logged in." Do I have to do something to allow accounts to be created? Do I have to use https?
