Duplicate user account when logging in with Facebook (3 posts)

    I have a user registered to my site through WordPress. A few days later they tried to log in to the site using Facebook (which uses the same email account).

    A new user account was created for this person instead of realizing it was the same person because it uses the same email address. The email address for newly created account got changed to something like "FB_1023323@unkown.com".

    Is there a way this plugin, either free or premium version, to not create a new user account if a user signs up to the site and then tries to connect using Facebook?

    Support for this plugin is here:


    ("FB_1023323@unkown.com" is used when the user denies access to their e-mail address when logging in with Facebook. The Premium version can force them to reveal their e-mail, or disallow them from logging in. The Free version will ask for their email, but still lets the user login if they choose not to reveal it.)
