Seems like facebook connect was getting a lot of discussion back a few weeks and it’s dropped off lately.
Has anyone got it to work with MU/BP? Or are we all waiting for an updated plugin?
FWIW, it was in the NYT today:
This is what you’re looking for: https://buddypress.org/forums/topic/facestream-facebook-plugin
Facestream sounds great and I’ll certainly be using it when it’s out. But isn’t the whole point of FB Connect that new members could sign up via their facebook login?
two different subjects, no?
I agree, it’s imperative that you can let people login with their Facebook id’s. Does that work?
I am trying to use the Facebook Connect buddypress plugin with 2.9.2 WordPress and the Latest BuddyPress. It doesn’t seem to be working. Is that everyones experience or have I broken something?
Nooo Andy has not updated the plugin for BP 1.2
It’s never really worked very well, back to 1.0 — crazy GUID usernames and such.
Andy’s said (if I recall correctly) that he regarded it more as a proof of concept than a full-on working plugin.
Gigya Socialize lets people login with their Facebook accounts. It seems to work OK on my site. Creates a user in the database. Is that similar to FB Connect?
