WordPress Sign-In

If using our WordPress plugin, you can enable single sign-on (SSO) so that users can comment on posts or pages using their existing WordPress account.

A few caveats:

  1. Anonymous comments are not currently supported. Only authenticated WordPress users will be allowed to comment
  2. You should configure any caching plugins not to cache logged-in users or cache on a per-user basis
  3. If a user already has a ReplyBox account and is signed in, their ReplyBox account will take precedence over their WordPress account

Enabling Single Sign-On

Head over to the site's setting screen and navigate to the Embed tab.

ReplyBox site's settings tab

Toggle on the Single Sign-On option to generate a unique secret key.

ReplyBox Single Sign-On

Update wp-config.php File

Add the REPLYBOX_SSO_KEY constant to your site's wp-config.php file, using the Secret Key generated by ReplyBox as the value.

define( 'REPLYBOX_SSO_KEY', 'f05d0a...' );

You can optionally provide a login URL, which will display a sign-in button for guest users.

define( 'REPLYBOX_SSO_LOGIN_URL', 'https://example.com/login' );

Important! Never share your SSO secret key. It should remain hidden at all times.
