    I'm askint the because I am currently using an extremely cheap host at the moment and it seems they built curl without https support and after setting the API information I get

    Facebook Registration Plugin Settings
    
    There is an error with your Facebook settings: "Error #1: Protocol https not supported or disabled in libcurl".

    So if there is a way around this i would definitely appreciate it.

    Not sure if this is a huge implementation or if it would even work but i found this

    Get libcurl functionality straight from within your PHP programs. PHP/CURL is supported built-in since PHP 4.0.2, no extra stuff is needed but PHP and libcurl installed.

    PHP/CURL is a binding that uses libcurl. It means that the PHP team has written a glue layer for PHP that speaks to the underlying libcurl. That layer, the binding, is what we call PHP/CURL and that is what offers the functions named curl_* within the PHP language for you. The PHP/CURL binding is written, maintained and being provided by the PHP team and you will not find any binaries, DLLs or other packages for it on this site.

    Should be doable. I will look into this further. The https part is only used to verify your Facebook settings are correct, so if nothing else, I will set an option to override that functionality.

    If the https is just to verify the api and secret keys I think it can be done just because the sometimes partially working plugin wp-facebook-connect is able to function..... most of the time, well it checks the connection settings fine lol i leave it at that.

    So if you could do that it would be awesome and make the plugin more versatile

    Thank you in advance (even just for considering it)
