Flyover 2.1

Flyover is a plugin which lets your users register and login with over 20 different social networks and providers. It authenticates users loading just the necessary files, avoiding unuseful stuff and being as much neat as possible: it acts as a mediator between your board and external sites offering login capabilities.

I wanted to endorse this as a valuable plugin. At HF we decided to try social logins (FB, Google, Discord, and Twitter) just to gauge how well it would do. I really didn't want to spend a huge time on development and saw that this Premium (paid) plugin existed. It wasn't too expensive to get the MyBBoost Ultimate package and he has a reasonable amount of very good plugins.

Flyover was worth it all by itself because upon install our registration increased 30-50%. Yeah, by that much. I was shocked but those are true numbers. Apparently having a super easy way to register an account even though it links to your Google or Twitter account is what people want.

Technically this is a very good plugin and well-written. We made some custom alteration for visual but that was about it. Great plugin and I fully endorse it to all forum owners.

Downloaded FB/TW/G+/Steam from this package. Greaaat plugin, yet again, Shade. It's much more simple and straight forward compared to using the free versions, and I like the hybrid auth. Good stuff. I was reluctant to replace the free versions you made, but this is by far superior.
This looks really good (and after testing it by registering for your forums it looks extremely good).

MyBBoost runs on Flyover, despite the interface is different, so you can register and try it on this site.

Compatible providers

Flyover is currently capable of full integration with BitBucket, Discord, Disqus, Dribbble, Facebook, Foursquare, GitHub, GitLab, Google, Instagram, LinkedIn, Mailru, Odnoklassniki, Spotify, StackExchange, Steam, Tumblr, TwitchTV, Twitter, Vkontakte, WeChat, WindowsLive (Microsoft), WordPress, Yahoo and Yandex.

Minimum requirements

PHP 7.1
MyBB 1.6 or 1.8, all minor versions included. MyBB 1.6 should be theoretically supported, but no support is given for this version

To install and configure Flyover, read Flyover documentation


Powered by HybridAuth

Flyover relies on an open source project, HybridAuth, to communicate with external sites. The current version is powered by HybridAuth 3.0.0 RC9. HybridAuth serves as a secure and powerful communication layer between your board and each providers' website. Most if not all providers use OAuth 2.0 to authenticate users.

Hashed IDs

In order to ensure the highest level of privacy, users identifiers coming from every providers are hashed. You don't need to worry in case someone steals a database dump, your users are always safe and no one gets to know the user's social identity (unless they have synchronized easily identifiable data).

PM on registration

You can specify and fully customize a private message which will be delivered to the user upon registering. Several customization options are available.

Register without a password

Flyover is capable of registering users without the need for them to specify a password. This is available as an option, and it's disabled by default.

Multiple accounts

Your users can link multiple accounts to the same provider, and choose to login with whatever account they want.

High customization

Several customizations are available to enhance and personalize your experience with Flyover. Synchronization options with up to 8 data points collected during every login, post-registration usergroup and full templates and stylesheets support are included. And you can always specify provider-specific settings that will override the general configuration.

Other customizations will be introduced throughout free and flawless updates.

Updates always safe and with backwards compatibility

An updater is provided within the package which ensures that every update, whether you are jumping from the oldest version of the plugin to the latest, is always safe for your users and your database. You won't lose any data and new features will be available with one single click of a button, needed to run the upgrade script. Also, updates to existing features will always have backwards compatibility so you will not need to worry about missed templates updates or other styling customizations you've made to Flyover.

Thank you for the report. I am investigating the issue and I am actively looking for a solution in the next couple of hours. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Payments should be allowed again. I will monitor the success of the incoming transactions and the effective insertion in the correct usergroups in order to ensure that everything is ok.

I received a payment in the morning, but it seems like your account has not been updated by the system. You are now on Gold subscription and you should see the download link. Ensure you select the providers you would like to use in your copy of Flyover (eg.: Steam); otherwise, the plugin will not work.

It can be used to replace Stewatiee's Steam integration, although it is fairly different from that in many ways. Currently there isn't any migrator for existing users connected with that plugin, but one will be included in the next minor release of Flyover.
Hi, I don't see a download link.

You should now. See the bottom part of the first post.
Still no. :(

Sorry for the inconvenience. I will check in the evening (I am away from home at the moment).
