I hope you’re doing well.
I wanted to ask you if it were possible to have a profile field in buddypress settings – > Account Details to link/unlink a user social account?
I’m currently using this plugin:
I sent the author an email, but he seems like he is not further developing this plugin. It’s a shame, because it’s actually a really great plugin.
Hope you can give me some insights here.

Allowing unlinking is easy(as it will include deleting a few meta keys ). Allowing linking will depend on the plugin.
Does this plugin allows users to use their existing WordPress account? If yes, That can be done too.
Please do let me know an we can add some snippet.

Thank you for confirming. Ravi is looking at it and we may have a solution tomorrow.

Can you please give it a try
@ravi1987 created the plugin today. The code works for BuddyPress and users can link/delink account from BuddyPress settings page.
Please check and let me know.
Thanks so much! I tried this plugin and it installs correctly. I see the link/unlink buttons in the settings area of my test account profile. When I click on one of the social icons, it says it’s redirecting (which is normal for the social login) but then gives me a 403 error.

Is the social login plugin configured and working correctly on your site? Also, Is the site using https?
The site is using https. As far as I know the plugin is configured correctly.
I did notice that when one tries to log in via the register page or login page, the wp-login.php precedes the url. The url inside of the user settings is missing wp-login.php. I’m not sure if this is required or not for it to function properly.
Ah, after some careful research, I found the culprit.
I had an .htaccess file that denied all access directly to .php files. Once I placed an override .htaccess in the specified folder, it is working perfectly!
Thanks to you Brajest and Ravi for creating this! This is exactly what my site was missing for user accounts.
