[resolved] [Plugin: Simple Facebook Connect] Just a quick question (5 posts)

    Hey,

    I see Otto has done a very good job with this and have been messing around with it a bit on a client's website and now I am looking at using it for a personal website.

    However I have just one question. Can I confirm that this doesn't create a user in the database. It is just I have a very odd setup (using IP.Converge) and if it made a user it would mess around a bit with it and just wanted to know if I had to change anything first before using it.

    If it does, can I ask if it uses the person e-mail or creates a random e-mail value like (facebook-user01929@facebook.com) as IP.Converge will need all the users to have different e-mails or they will start syncing and my comments won't look too pretty ;)

    I would use a test site first, but I was just wondering if the developer could tell me first :)

    Sorry for updating once again.

    I have answered my own question. No it doesn't if you just use the comments part of it (you will see what I mean when you install it). Thanks Otto for the plugin (and quite quick support too on his website).

    The Comment plugin does not create a user in the database, no. It's designed that way to allow "anonymous" commenting.

    The Register plugin will indeed let you create new users from FB credentials. The Login plugin will let them login with those credentials.

    Separate plugins for separate things.

    In fact, if you're using the Register plugin, then you kinda don't need the Comments plugin, do you? People can register and leave comments as logged in users then.

    Great, that is what I was hoping it does.

    Ya, I noticed that but just wanted to make sure.

    In fact, if you're using the Register plugin, then you kinda don't need the Comments plugin, do you? People can register and leave comments as logged in users then.

    I agree there but I don't want people to be able to create users using it so I would rather have it disabled but only want people to be able to comment using their FB details.

    Thanks once again for this plugin :)
