Enable commenter registration via external provider


This dynamic configuration parameter controls whether new commenters are allowed to register in Comentario via a federated (external) identity provider, such as Google or Facebook.

  • If set to On, new commenters can register on websites embedding comments via federated identity providers.
  • If set to Off, external user registration on websites embedding comments will be forbidden.

This setting doesn’t apply to the Administration UI, which uses a separate configuration item for that.

It also doesn’t affect existing users, i.e. those already registered. They will be able to login even when this setting is disabled. To disable federated login completely, switch off undesirable providers in the domain’s authentication settings.
