    Any plans to integrate this with BuddyPress?


  2. As far as I know, it works now. I've gotten reports from people who made it work.

    It would be great if we could have a plugin like "tweetstream" for facebook.


    The best part is that it seamlessly integrates with buddypress. Since BuddyPress is the social platform, I'm sure more users would be interested to have a buddypress compatible plugin for Facebook.

    It's interesting that people have made the simple-facebook-connect work with BuddyPress. Where can I get more info and how can I make it work?

    Any help is gladly appreciated!

  6. I know nothing of BuddyPress, so can't give you any advice.

    SFC works with a default WordPress. I don't know of any modification it would need for BuddyPress in particular. Depends on what exactly you're trying to do.

    @amitc4, the creator of the Tweetstream BuddyPress plugin is currently working on a "Facestream" plugin. You can follow his progress in this thread.

    I'm still working on integrating @otto42's Simple Facebook Connect plugin with BuddyPress and will be sure to share if I figure it out.

    Hi Radrew,
    Have you come up with some guidelines or solution to integrate Simple Facebook Connect plugin with BuddyPress? I'm trying to write such integration, but it requires a good knowledge of BuddyPress...
    Thanks for your help,

    I *think* this is all you need to do to get SFC working with BP:

    Copy the function sfc_login_profile_page, around line 48 of sfc-login.php, to the functions.php file in your theme and rename it to something like sfc_login_profile_page_my_site($profile).

    Then look for :
    $fbuid = get_usermeta($profile->ID, 'fbuid');
    Replace it with :
    global $bp;
    $fbuid = get_usermeta($bp->loggedin_user->id , 'fbuid');

    Finally you need to add the 'connect' button to the BP edit profile page : just after the closing '}' of your new function add:

    Any update on this threAD?
    Does anybody know if SFC is now fully compatible with BP?

    @Chris G: unfortunately I couldn't be able to fix it, even with your solution

    Hello! @chris, same as @carlo, that code did not help me fix it.

    @radrew, were you able to figure out something?

    thanks again!
