integrating into existing site with JomSocial Connect

integrating into existing site with JomSocial Connect

I have a few questions regarding the JFBConnect.
1) From reading everything I am assuming this is a completely different plug-in than the one that comes integrated with JomSocial (1.6) - Is this correct?
2) If I have been using the integrated Connect plug-in with my JomSocial and add this extension, will there be a problem with users who already have been using the other Connect? Will they have to "start over" or will it be fairly seamless to the user?
3) Do you still use the API key, Application Secret  and Settings in the admin or do you just eliminate them?

Thanks for your help!

Re: integrating into existing site with JomSocial Connect

1) Yes, this is completely separate from JomSocial's integration, which should be disabled if you enable JFBConnect.  There are a lot of differences in how we operate, mainly by allowing more control of how integration occurs, but nonetheless, separate.
2) There's 2 answers to this.  The first, and the bad news, is that we currently don't import existing connections into JFBConnect from JomSocial.  Our next update (version 3.1) should automatically import those connections, which is due shortly.  The 2nd, and good news, is that we have an option to automatically connect Facebook users to a Joomla account on your site if their Facebook and Joomla email addresses are identical.  This may not work for all your users if they've changed the default email.. but even if they have, we have a Login or Register page that can be used after they connect with Facebook to specify the Joomla account already existing on your site.
3) We require the API, Secret key, and Application ID for JFBConnect to function.  If you use the same keys as you had in JomSocial, then any user who previously approved your application won't need to do so again.

Hope that helps, and if you have any more questions, just let us know!
