Why is it better, than other similar extensions?
There're lot of extensions with similar functionality nowadays, but in most cases they are either awkward or have ridiculous limitations. For example, OneAll and LoginRadius, which have its mods for Joomla, allow you to have only small number of connections for free and the rest is billed monthly. There're other limitations as well, including providers number and layout customization. Social Authorization component doesn't have any limitations and can be customized any way you like. It also doesn't depend on any external library and works with network APIs directly, which greatly increases stability and control. No more problems with popup blockers and tabbed windows.
You can find social networks icons on the top of any page of our site. Don't be shy, click any icon you like and test, how it works! Back-end can be tested on our demo site (username: demo, password: demo).
Compatibility: 2.5 & 3.0
