Unable to remove the Authentication type GitHub.

I would like to have only the email address authentication available for my forem instance.

So, at /admin/Customisation/Config, I disabled all the other authentication types viz. facebook, github and twitter.

facebook and twitter got disabled, but the GitHub option is not getting disabled even after multiple reboots of the instance.

Any ideas how to disable the GitHub authentication type as well.. and to keep email authentication only? #help

Hey @9comindia , have you checked out the Forem Admin documentation on Authentication?

Assuming you're removing the keys and confirming the Disable by saving changes, your Forem should no longer contain the information required to authenticate via GitHub. Can you please take a video or some screenshots of your process and DM them to me so we can see what you're experiencing?

Thank you, after removing the GitHub keys from the .env file, I am able to remove the Authentication type in the admin config.

Glad to hear you got it working!

Can I confirm that you weren't able to remove the GitHub keys from Authentication under /admin/customization/config using the UX, and so you had to access the .env files yourself?
