To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.24 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'ULogin' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/ULogin/ULogin.php";

Privacy concerns[edit]

If you install this extension, visitors which will login into the MediaWiki installation using this facility, will give the rights to look at their (e.g.) Facebook profiles to ulogin.ru, not to the MediaWiki installation. Beside that, the browser of the MediaWiki user will download and execute some javascript code from ulogin.ru. Moreover, the extension does not work if ulogin.ru service is down or unavailable.
