Viafoura's commenting widget defaults to enables both Viafoura login and Social logins, giving users the option to register either through email or a social network. Both login types have their benefits; the Viafoura login allows users to register with just an email address, as well, it allows moderators to moderate comments at the story level and from the administration site. The Social login options will connect to a social network and can retrieve user information such as age, gender, education level and interests. 

If you prefer to only allow Social login, please follow the steps below, but please note, moderators with a Viafoura account will no longer be able to moderate from the story level.

  3. Uncheck "Enable both email logins and social logins" and save your changes.
