Hints and tips

  • If you are new to all this, start with the basics before changing too many things. For instance, find an OAuth2 plugin and ensure it works with something like Google sign-on before modifying things for PixelPin.

  • Until our code is included with 3rd party libraries, some manual changes might have to be made. Make sure you backup you files and/or database before changing your site in case something goes wrong.

  • Visit the forums to ask any questions (registration required). There is a community as well as staff members who provide support this way.

  • Certain characters in the "secret" that we provide you can cause problems in some plugins. For instance secrets starting with @ will break wordpress social login. If you get a low level error with the authorization process, please delete and recreate the developer account to obtain a new secret that will have different characters in it.

  • If you get an error, make sure you copy and paste the exact text before asking for help.

  • If you have problems with our website(s) not working, please use the Contact Page. Any general support queries or offerings of unsolicited web services or products will NOT be answered and will be marked as SPAM.
