MyFacebook Connect
Try it on the test board!

MyFacebook Connect can easily let your users register and login using their Facebook accounts with MyFacebook Connect: it differs from existing (both free and paid) plugins thanks to the provided PHP SDK and a lightweight, transparent integration. A must-have for almost every community and compatible with the latest MyBB releases!

As an admin, you can decide to use two different types of registration: Fast Registration lets you register through Facebook with only one click and one front-end redirect. This means that every user who would like to login into your board and doesn't have a registered account will be registered and logged in with a single click of a button. If he has already an account registered, he'll be just logged in and his account will be linked to his Facebook one. If he has already an account and its already linked as well, he'll be just logged in.

With Fast Registration option disabled, every user who hasn't got a registered account and logs in with Facebook will be asked to choose a new username and eventually an email address different from his Facebook one. By default, inputs will be filled with his existing Facebook data but they'll be able to choose whatever username and email they'll want. In addition to this they'll be asked to select what data to import from Facebook, respecting their privacy slightly better than the simple one-click registration process.

Thanks to all the guys who tested my plugin and thanks to all of them who will test my future versions.

Such a shame this didn't come out sooner. No point us installing it now since we are moving to Xenforo, but this is another excellent plugin.

Feature listing

At the moment, MyFacebook Connect comes with the following features:

  3. Automatically synchronizes Facebook account data with MyBB account, including avatar, birthday and cover (if Profile Pictures plugin is installed)
  4. 6 dedicated settings that users can manage and change to whatever they like, controlling what data to sync with their Facebook accounts
  5. Existing users can link their Facebook accounts to their accounts on your board within their User Control Panel and with the click of a button, without necessarily create a new account from scratch (or ask admins to merge their accounts)
  6. Facebook-linked accounts can be unlinked
  7. 2 registration modes you can choose to use within your Admin Control Panel: One Click Registration (Fast) and Two Step Registration (more slowly, but fast anyway :blush:)

  9. Redirects logged in/registered users to the same page they came from
