Sorry for the delay in getting back to this.
1) Component Anywhere isn't a built-in functionality of Joomla. While I understand the benefit, we also have to limit what features & configuration options we offer within JFBConnect. Adding a parameter for redirecting from the account menu is something that only one user would likely use. While it benefits you, if we did that for every one-off option to allow a benefit to every 3rd party extensions, the configuration area would quickly get unmanageable.
It's a balancing act we're always dealing with.. adding more features without making JFBConnect even more complex to configure.. see your notes about user friendliness in point 2
As for setting up a redirect, the URL we redirect to is (in the /components/com_jfbconnect/controllers/account.php file):
Seeing that, I realize we're not adding an Itemid, which is a problem since we should find and use any menu item that is configured for that URL.
With that said, to setup a redirect, you can use the .htaccess file:
[code]RewriteRule ^/.*option=com_jfbconnect&view=account /your-account-profile-url[R=301,L]
There are plenty of other ways to setup redirects as well if you'd like other suggestions.
2) I understand and generally agree with this request. I've added it to our tracker to see if we can streamline the link/unlink options.
Thanks for your patience and feedback!
