Hints and tips

  • If you are new to all this, start with the basics before changing too many things. For instance, find an OpenID Connect plugin and ensure it works in a simple way before modifying anything specifically 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.
  • 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. This will make it much easier for us to trace.
  • If you have problems with our website(s) not working, please Contact Us.
