    Should the fb-connect shortcode still work after 1.0 update? I had:


    in the content of a page previously and it showed the little blue Connect with Facebook icon. After the update, I'm just seeing the text [fb-connect] in place of the blue button. Am I missing something?

    No, the fb-connect shortcode, along with the connect widget, is not in 1.0. The code was buggy, broken, and weird. It may make a comeback in 1.1, but it needs serious work first.

    You can make your own fb:login-button XFBML code if you need to put a login button somewhere on a page. The base plugin enables this over the whole site by default.

    See http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/login/. You can leave out the SCRIPT and div tag from the generated code, since SFC's base handles that for you.

    Hi Otto,

    I've being trying to get the FB login button working on a template page and so far, using that XFBML code I do get the login button, but then it will just log you into your FB account and not the WP account aswell, I can get the register form working with FB parts fine on the template.

    Would you be interested in some paid work helping me with it?, all I essentially want is the SFC functions that appear on the wordpress login screen (which are working perfectly)to appear nicely within my theme. I'll pay you industry rates as it's my own commercial venture I'm working on.

    I was trying for ages to get the shortcode to work lol didnt know it was disabled (its still in the readme)

    That shortcode does not exist anymore, and there's no way in SFC to "login" from outside the login screen. I have no plans to change this.

    Do you think using an iframe containing the login page would work? my only concern is that once you login the page refreshes and would be redirected to whatever page which would be still inside the iframe which wouldn't be ideal I suppose
