No. it just have basic login/registration features. I don't plan to add those features for the time being. I'll concentrate on making the base more secure and functioning.

I may add "publish to wall" thingies in version 2 and version 1 is still in beta Big Grin

I'll stick to my plan(i've had bad experiences when not going according to my plan).
Better a stable plugin with less features than a plugin with kick-a$$ features which is unstable Wink

Is this recommended on a test installation over a live forum?

Well its beta version, you can test it on demo site before going to implement on live forums.

i run this on my live forum it works well.

here is a sugg. make fbconnect.php as a popup (maybe hooking to misc.php can be interesting like misc.php?action=fbconnect)

What's the reason to "popup" BTW ?

when u click to fblogin button it redirects u to fbconnect.php page and there is more login button to go. (also its a full mybb page with header template etc. and contains normal fblogin button. it confuse users mind.) its not good looking in this way. also i didnt mean any kind of popup. a popup like buddylist. click the "open buddy list" from header and think that is the fb connect link.

Also got a feedback; people doesnt login if they use opera browser.


RE: Facebook Connect for MyBB - Testers Needed - Nayar - 2010-11-25

yes, it could be confusing. I didn't find any other way simpler than this to implement this function.

The original plugin from which i made this one was hooked to global_start. Therefore, everytime the user would visit a page, the plugin would run. It would make pages load slower.

Other functions such as choose a username etc would be more difficult to implement.

I'll try to find shortcuts if possible. Maybe i could make part of the codes run globally and some not.

If you got ideas how to do it, please share Wink
