Plugin is now compatible with PHP 8. It has improved Chinese translation. Thanks to CalmSmile (calmsmile.org).
Heateor Social Login Version 1.1.9 now supports Discord, Stack Overflow and Amazon.
Discord is an online community platform, initially created as space for the gamers to communicate with one another. In December 2020, Discord hit a milestone of 140 million monthly active users (Discord’s active user base has doubled since 2019)

Plugin now supports an option Disable Social Login for admin accounts that allows you to disable Social Login for administrators of the website. This option can be found in the Basic Configuration section at the Heateor Social Login configuration page.
Third party libraries being used for Steam Login and Vkontakte Login were conflicting with the same libraries being used in other plugins. There is now a check in place that checks if these PHP classes are already being used in other plugins or themes.
Plugin now uses the latest version 10.0 of Facebook SDK.
Some text strings were not being translated when using any of the languages that plugin supports. These are the notifications displayed when you have selected a social network and haven’t saved API Key and Secret for the same.
Super Socializer Version 7.13.12 and Heateor Social Login version 1.1.8 now support Dropbox, Reddit, Foursquare and Disqus for Social Login.
Dropbox has over 600 million users as of Q3 2019. With over 14.3 million paid users; 400 billion pieces of content uploaded to Dropbox.
According to the company’s official figures released at the end of 2019, there are more than 430 million monthly active Reddit users worldwide.
According to the latest data released by the company, more than 50 million people use the recommended City Guide Foursquare app and the location-based game Foursquare Swarm each month across desktop, mobile web, and mobile apps. While this isn’t equivalent to social networks like Twitter and Instagram, Foursquare’s ad targeting and other services allow it to make money from a relatively smaller user base. While the company doesn’t provide data on Foursquare users by country, it is believed that about 60% of its users are based in the US.
Google login now doesn’t depend on the 3rd party library which was causing conflict with a few other plugins that were using the same PHP classes being used by the same library.
Facebook social avatar was broken because of the non-stable CDN url. This avatar is now being saved locally at the WordPress website where Super Socializer and Heateor Social Login plugins are being installed. This would help reduce the page load time for the web page where Facebook avatar was being loaded as now it will be served from the WordPress website instead of the Facebook.
