[resolved] Request & Store Additional Fields during FB Authentication (3 posts)

    By default this plugin only stores a users email, name, photo and about_me fields when requesting Facebook authentication. Does anyone else know an easy way I can store additional public fields in the database during the FB Connect? I need gender and friends(id).

    I know these are two available fields I just don't know an easy way to store them using this plugin. Love the plugin otherwise!

    To get the gender, you already get it in the /me.
    This page show how to get fb data saved on the user account

    it's not possible to store any additional data during authentification at the moment. The next dev phase will be to add a lot of hook every where in the plugin and add documentation.

    But you can do it after, call the api, get friends, and store them in a user meta.
