WordPress Customizing the ‘Continue with’

Last updated 09/27/2022

Within the Bread & Butter IO WordPress plugin setup panel, you can customize the Bread & Butter IO ‘Continue with’ tool, including its position, theme, and custom authentication prompt text. These settings can be changed globally for all pages, or individually in the page editor.

Please note that the following can be changed per page, in the Bread & Butter IO Setup panel. Settings in the Bread & Butter IO Setup panel take precedence over the settings below. You can find the Bread & Butter IO Setup panel by clicking the Bread & Butter IO logo at the top right when editing a post or page, or by clicking on the Options button, and selecting Bread & Butter IO under Plugins.

Global Customization

The global settings can be found by following these steps.

  1. In the left menu in WordPress Admin, click on Bread & Butter IO.



  2. Go to the Display Settings tab.

‘Continue with’ Position

You can adjust the position of the ‘Continue with’ tool to better align with your content. The Margin creates space above and below, or to the left and right, of the popover.

  1. Set the vertical position and the top and bottom margins of the ‘Continue with’.

  2. Set the horizontal position and the left and right margins of the “Continue with’.

‘Continue with’ Header

You can adjust the text that appears at the very top of the continue with, for several different states. The “New User” text is displayed when the user is brand new to your site, and you don’t have their email address or information yet. The “Returning User” text is displayed to people who have signed in previously, and have come back to your site.

In the General Settings section of the Display Settings tab, you can also set a Display Name. If you have a Display name set, then the “Display Name Set” versions of the text are displayed. If you have no Display Name set, then the “no Display Name set” versions of the text are displayed.

Authentication Prompt

You can choose to blur the web page when the ‘Continue with’ is displayed. See the Authentication Prompt per page setup below for enabling this feature. Customize the default text in the paragraph fields to direct customers. The “Expand label” text is used to prompt users to read more information in a third paragraph.

Button Style

Select Icons or Tiles to display the identity provider or single sign-on options.
