Not at all. The 2 plugins are fully compatible each other.

Please correct the following errors before continuing:

thanks for your time
Fixed in the last commit. Thank you for reporting this!
How can I add the register button?
It's just a plain text HTML link. See the template edits the plugin tries to apply to know the code and the template you need to edit in order to add a register/login button.
De opgegeven URL wordt niet toegestaan door de configuratie van de applicatie.: Een of meer van de opgegeven URL's zijn niet toegestaan door de instellingen van de app. De URL moet overeenkomen met de website- of canvas-URL, of het domein moet een subdomein zijn van een van de domeinen van de app.
Next time post it in English language, thanks. Please read carefully the documentation.
Awesome! Thanks!
OMG, this is perfect.

MyFacebook Connect
The missing (free) bridge MyBB <--> Facebook becomes real!

MyFacebook Connect is a plugin which lets you login and register through Facebook on any MyBB installation.

Download it from the Mods Site or from GitHub*, or try it on the test board!

I've spent almost 1 month developing this plugin but it totally worth my efforts. With it, you can easily let your users register and login using their Facebook accounts: it differs from existing (both free and paid) plugins thanks to the provided PHP SDK and a lightweight integration. A must-have for almost every community and compatible with the latest MyBB releases!

As an admin, you can decide to use two different types of registration: Fast Registration lets you register through Facebook with only one click and one front-end redirect. This means that every user who would like to login into your board and he doesn't have a registered account will be registered and logged in with a single click of a button. If he has already an account registered, he'll be just logged in and his account will be linked to his Facebook one. If he has already an account and its already linked as well, he'll be just logged in.

With Fast Registration option disabled, every user who hasn't got a registered account and logs in with Facebook will be prompted to choose a new username and eventually an email address different from his Facebook one. By default, inputs will be filled with his existing Facebook data but they'll be able to choose whatever username and email they'll want. In addition to this they'll be asked to select what data to import from Facebook, respecting their privacy in a better way than the simple one-click registration process.

Thanks to all the guys who tested my plugin and thanks to all of them who will test my future versions.

Feature listing

At the moment, MyFacebook Connect comes with the following features:
  • Connect any user to your MyBB installation with Facebook
  • One-click login/registration: if Fast Registration setting is set to off, it will ask the user to choose an username from scratch and to decide what informations to import from Facebook
  • Automatically synchronizes Facebook account data with MyBB account, including avatar, birthday and cover (if Profile Pictures plugin is installed)
  • 6 dedicated settings that users can manage and change to whatever they like, controlling what data to sync with their Facebook accounts
  • Existing users can link their Facebook accounts to their accounts on your board within their User Control Panel and with the click of a button, without necessarily create a new account from scratch (or ask admins to merge their accounts)
  • Facebook-linked accounts can be easily unlinked hitting a button in the UCP
  • 2 registration modes you can choose to use within your Admin Control Panel: One Click Registration (Fast) and Two Step Registration (More slowly, but fast anyway Blush)

  • Redirects logged in/registered users to the same page they came from
  • You can choose whether if restricting registration to verified-only Facebook users
  • You can choose what usergroup to insert Facebook-registered users
  • Works for all MyBB 1.6 installations and web servers thanks to the Facebook SDK provided in the package. It requires your server to be able to store cookies, but MyBB also requires this feature so if you can run MyBB you can run MyFacebook Connect

  • It works
  • It's free
