Hi, I’m new to the plugin and testing it out on my site. After setting up the base plugin, then login and registration, when I try to login using my FB account, it takes me to my WP registration window. (It does the same thing with Janrain Engage plugin which I’m also testing but I’d prefer your’s because of the publishing plugin.) I get the feeling its something fundamental in my WP admin setup. Any ideas?
Don’t you have to have a user with that Facebook info in order to login with it?
1. You need to be using the latest beta for this to all work properly: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/simple-facebook-connect.zip
2. If you don’t have a user with the same email address as the FB user, then it will go to the registration screen.
Ah thats probably it – the email thing. I’ll also check out the beta.
Too funny. I thought something went wrong on the upgrade when I only saw the base plugin and not all the sfc add-on plugins. So I reinstalled it manually, then when it was still that way, I realized that you tidied it up by putting the add-ons into the set up menu. Nicely done! (guess I scanned the readme.txt too fast – its probably in there!)
P.S., I’m a little unclear from the literature, can this plugin push comments one way or two ways (or anyways)? I’m migrating from Wordbooker and switching for the FB login/registration function and for the comments push (which wasn’t working in WB).
The FB login worked great with my FB account but since it showed the application, I tried it with my wife’s FB account (she’s already registered on the site). It took me to the WP registration page. Her FB account email is the same as her user email. What went wrong?
If the email matching doesn’t work, log out of Facebook, then log into the WP site normally as the user in question.
Then, on the Users->Your Profile page, you can manually connect the user’s profile to a Facebook account (this is why you log out of FB, so that you can log into FB as the user in question here).
This allows users to connect their WP and FB accounts manually if they choose, or if they use different email addresses, or whatever.
Email matching can fail sometimes if Facebook is returning a proxied email address to the plugin or if capitalization doesn’t match, etc.

It’s a little complex…
Using the Comments plugin (which allows anonymous users to comment with their FB credentials instead of filling in name/email/website) will offer them an option to share the comment to Facebook. This pushes the fact of their comment (not the comment text) to their own Facebook profile. Sort of a way to share their post. This shows up as a checkbox under the comment box and is meant a way to draw their friends back to your site.
Using the Publisher plugin will push new posts you make to your Facebook Profile or Page. If you use the automatic mode, then new posts are auto-pushed where you want them to go, *and* the resulting post IDs on Facebook are stored in the postmeta on your site. This last bit is for…
Comments pullback will scan those (potentially two) automated posts on Facebook for new comments once every 6 hours or so, retrieve the comments, and sorta integrate them into the normal comments displayed on the post’s page itself. These are not real comments and are not stored in the WordPress database, so they can’t be replied to here directly. This is why the reply link will be missing from them. A little CSS and you can show that these comments came from Facebook. A demo of this can be seen here: http://ottopress.com/2011/sfc-1-0-fb-comments-integration/
Thanks for quick responses Otto. I think I may have dug myself a hole on the install. Does SFC create a FB automatically on activation or am I supposed to create one? It looked like it was using an old FB app I had made for something else so I cleaned out (deleted) my old “unused” FB apps. SFC set up was still showing an API key and App secret, which I presumed was left over from the deleted app. I made a new FB app and put the API and Secret into the SFC fields. Now I’m getting error messages when I SFC>Extended Permissions>Grant SFC Permissions. Also no tokens are found. Yeah, I know – stupid – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – and I did. Sorry. How do I get back to where I was?
UPDATE: ITS WORKING WITH THE NEW APP I CREATED NOW. APPARENTLY, IT JUST TAKES A WHILE – REALLY – TO “PROPOGATE” ON THE SERVERS, JUST LIKE THE FB NOTICE SAYS WHEN YOU CREATE THE APP.
The only thing still bugging me is that your instructions didn’t say to create an app. The link to “applications wall” doesn’t take me to the FB developers page or say anything about creating an app. So was I right in doing so?
Sorry for being so verbose. Its seems to work for me but when I test it with my wife’s FB account, I get the registration window again. Her user and FB emails match, so that shouldn’t be the problem. Any ideas?
hi. wanna know. I used to <?php echo sfc_connect_shortcode(); ?> for using connect button in theme. now it doesnt work. what i should use now?
The connect shortcode and widget was removed, mainly because it didn’t work most of the time.
The like button is still there and works fine. Just make sure you turn on the like module.
but how to insert facebook login button in code? in the place i want?
