How to bypass the registering process in Joomla?

How to bypass the registering process in Joomla?

Hi, I implemented JFBConnect for Joomla 1.5 on our website.
It is seemingly working, but whenever a new user wants to log in with facebook, he is sent to the joomla register page, where he has two options: login with a Joomla user or Register (using JFBConnect). In the latter case the user has to choose a username but the Password and Verify Password fields are already filled with a random password.

I find this screen negates all the positive idea of the Facebook log in and confuses the user. The user complains: Why are there already asterisks in the password fields? Has this website acquired somehow my Facebook password? And why is there a need for a username and password if I have already accepted to use Facebook as log in?

I still  want to get the email address of the users who log in with Facebook.

Please help me and show me how to bypass this screen.
I am attaching a Powerpoint with screen captures.
Thanks!

Re: How to bypass the registering process in Joomla?

There is an option in JFBConnect for "Registration Mode". Change that from "Normal" to "Automatic". Normal mode is for presenting a form-based registration. You can hide fields like password or username there and have them automatically generated by Facebook. That can be a reduced registration flow. Automatic is obviously the fastest and will just log the user in.

Let me know if that helps. If you want the Normal flow, we can gladly help investigate why the field is pre-populated like you show.

Thanks,
Alex
