Oh boy.. we received your email earlier tonight asking why we hadn't responded. That led to an investigation that helped us determine there was a server issue that was preventing all emails from the site from being sent. Emails are how we tracked support forum requests and without them.. we weren't aware. We've had a lot of personal distractions this year, so lesser support was welcome, until tonight when we realized it was neglected :/

Thank you for your email, and I apologize for the lengthy delay.

I did look over your suggestions above, but it's going to take a little more to catch up on posts and be able to respond to new feature requests. That's not a great answer, but it's better than what we've provided you the last few months. Rest assured, we are still here and working to improve JFBConnect and appreciate your support (and patience).

Thanks,
Alex

So,
@Mel Thank You
@Alex I think tha my recap here: 
www.sourcecoast.com/forums/jfbconnect-9-...-custom-plugin#68486
is clear. If you need more don't hesitate to write me, I remain available and I'll stay tuned.

With Joomla 5 near the corner I think that this plugin is the biggest JFBConnect missing in the Joomla workflow integration.

- to have a "jfbcsocials Joomla User custom" plugin is a nutural logical Joomla integration must have to show the connected socials into the User Profile. GDPR etc. require to make available to the Users all their informations and their management.

We have discussed this (both you & I and Melissa & I). For showing the social networks, we have the Social Networks menu which shows which accounts the user has authenticated with. I understand and agree that showing it on the User page could be a benefit, but we wouldn't show GDPR or other user information. It's something on our radar, but for now, the Social Networks menu item is the best we have for a user managing their connections.

- the "jfbcsocials Joomla User custom" plugin in a Backend point of view would be the useful alterego of the User Map, where the plugin permit to the Administrator to see and manage the single User Social connections through a Backend User Profile Tab editing (per User view). While the User Map what permits is a recap of all the Socials connections (per Connections view).

What kind of management do you envision doing this way? Can you explain what value you'd get by being able to see what accounts a user has authenticated with in the admin area? Just trying to understand what functionality is missing vs what we have now. I'll agree, the Usermap area isn't 'pretty', but making it pretty without a good functional reason isn't something we're likely to focus on.

- As I suggested for the User Map here: www.sourcecoast.com/forums/jfbconnect-9-...-app-athorized#68484 would be useful to have the Social Icons linked directly to the Socials Profiles.

While I agree, unfortunately, this isn't possible for many networks. Facebook and others have created "App Scoped Links" to profile pages, which means the links only work for logged in users (via Facebook). This is meant to prevent abuse for admins looking up user's profiles easily and there's not a way to get around this. Other networks have similar restrictions.

- the simplifications discussed here: www.sourcecoast.com/forums/jfbconnect-9-...ge-etc?start=0#67985 should be included for a User Friendly experience

Understood. This goes along with the initial question and I do see your point.

We'll investigate and try to come up with a plan. We're also investigating Joomla 5 and other items now which are obviously important as well.

Thanks,
Alex

I reread again and believe I understand better now. I've created the ticket in our issue tracker to add a feature to show the user's social networks in the admin User Manager area in a tab and also in the front-end user manager section.

We'll be investigating and keep you posted.

Hi @Alex
I'm happy to read that I'm been able to explain the issue. I remain available.
In past I look for a tutorial, a guide for "How to build a Joomla User Custom plugin" without success.
What I can suggest is to look into the DPCalendar one (by Digital Peak CH, user leader Allon Moritz) because it is simple, he is the Joomla Custom Fields donator, he is into the Joomla Team and maybe you can ask him, he is a  reallycollaborative person, in special if we are speaking about a better integration into Joomla...

Do you want the Allon contact ?
Can I send you it by email ?

Let us start investigating first. We have multiple items on our plate right now. While I understand this issue, it's not something we're starting on 'this moment'. I'll keep you posted if we start and run into issues though.

Thanks,
Alex
