    Hi everyone,

    Just to highlight that the forum now has Facebook, Twitter and Google integration which means that you can now use your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts to log in straight to the forum, it will create a profile the first time you log in if not already registered, if you are already registered you can associate your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts to your existing UKAPS account.

    Use the two new icons on the log in page:

    Enjoy :)

    Its easy enough to log in as it is. All I do is click on a favourite tab at the top of my browser.

    Paulo, please confirm that positive action must be taken to link UKAPS to ones facebook or twitter ? I am not a fan of that kind of integration and would not want anything 'automatic' happening. Thanks.

    Mainly to facilitate Guests that are not registered to create an account much easier.

    If you don't click in those icons nothing happens. Just facilitates registration and also if you have your accounts linked with your profile makes it easier when you click the share links at the footer of topics. It does not post anything to your accounts if they are linked to your profile.

    After you post it just click on the Twitter button on the footter! That should do it.
