Sit back, relax and let us guide you through the installation and set up of the Thinkific Single Sign On Plugin from WooNinja


Why do I Need This?

When you a student creates an account with your WordPress site, the last thing you want them to do is create another Thinkific account and password. More passwords, more things to forget and more hassle for you, the course creator.

With our plugin, you can login a student into Thinkific, from your WordPress site, without them having to enter a username or password. They simply click a link and they are logged in.


What Does it Do?

Our extension adds a custom shortcode to your WordPress site. Using standard WordPress coding, you can use this shortcode anywhere, from posts, to pages and even in theme builders. Simply put, you can log your student into Thinkific from anywhere on your WordPress site.

Zero coding knowledge is needed to use our extension. Simply type the shortcode and WordPress handles the magic.


What Do I Need?

You will require a WordPress site that you can install plugins on. You will also a Thinkific account that supports SSO. You can review if this feature is available to you here.

Please note, this extension will not work if you do not have access to the Thinkific SSO feature.
