Simple Facebook Connect
Login redirects me to Register (3 posts)

    I've been having an issue with Simple Facebook Connect where I'm being redirected. I have a link to "/wp-login.php" but when clicked it redirects to "/wp-login.php?action=register". This only happens in Firefox on one computer. I'm guessing a cookie since I cleared caches and restarted but I really didn't want to have to clear my cookies. I can click the link in Chrome or FF on another PC and I'm fine. Just wanted to see if there is something I can clear specifically to correct this and to let you know this happened to me. Not certain why.

    Cheers,
    jeff

    Clear your cookies for that site only, then login to the system normally. Go to the Users->Your Profile page and connect your FB account to your WP account.

    this still happens..

    if a user doesnt want to register using his facebook account, then he will clear the form and register using his own email. but when he tries to log in using those credentials, it will always redirect to wp-login.php?action=register page. he will never be able to login using those credentials.
    just check this by doing following steps..
    1.clear your browser cookies
    2. go to facebook.com and login
    3. now go to your login/register page. it will show name and public info filled with your fb profile.
    4. okey now you dont want to add your fb acc(there are some people dont like it right?) so you clear the form and fill "choose a username" and security check. then hit register.
    5. now click the login link and see if you able to enter above username and login to site.

    everything else in this plugin works except this part..
    please someone tell me a solution.
