  • SilverStripe 3.2


The module provides a basic interface for implementing the Vk PHP SDK on your SilverStripe website. The Vk SDK allows users to login to your website using their Vk account details, creating a single sign-on within the existing SilverStripe member system.

What it provides

  • Loads the VK PHP SDK.

  • Provides $VkLoginLink template variable to generate a link to login to VK.com Upon clicking the link and being redirected back to your application the SilverStripe Member::currentUser() will be populated with a Member instance linked to the users VK profile.

<% with CurrentMember %>
	$Name $Avatar(small)
<% end_with %>


composer require "a2nt/silverstripe-vkconnect" "dev-master"

Register your website / application with VK.

Set your configuration through the SilverStripe Config API. For example I keep my configuration in mysite/_config/vkconnect.yml file:

  app_id: 'MyAppID'
  api_secret: 'Secret'

Update the database by running /dev/build to add the additional fields to the Member table and make sure you ?flush=1 when you reload your website.

<a href="$VkLoginLink">Login via Vk</a>

You can also access the Vk PHP SDK in your PHP code..

// https://developers.Vk.com/docs/php/VkSession/4.0.0
$session = Controller::curr()->getVkSession();

For more information about what you can do through the SDK see:



All the following values are set either via the Config API like follows

Config::inst()->update('VkControllerExtension', '$option', '$value')

Or (more recommended) through the YAML API

VkControllerExtension: option: value


Your app id. Found on the Vk Developer Page.


Vk API secret. Again, from your Application page.


Optional, default: true

Whether or not to create a Member record in the database with the users information. If you disable this, ensure your code uses $CurrentVkMember rather than $Member. Other access functionality (such as admin access) will not work.


Optional, default ''

A list of group codes to add the user. For instance if you want every member who joins through Vk to be added to a group Vk Members set the following:

VkControllerExtension: member_groups: - Vk_members


Optional, default 'email'

A list of permission codes you want from the user. Permission codes are listed on developers.Vk.com.

Ensure you include email in your list if you require create_member.


Default 'email','first_name','last_name'

A list of fields you want to retrieve from Vk for the user. Available fields are listed on developers.Vk.com.

Ensure you include email in your list if you require create_member.


Optional, default true

Flag as to whether to replace user information (such as name) in your database with the values from Vk.
