link facebook profile to jomsocial

link facebook profile to jomsocial

Hi, I noticed in jomsocial something very annoying: if a jomsocial user (not logged with facebook) link his jomsocial profile to facebook (in edit profile) after that he can't use his jomsocial credentials (user/password) anymore, he have to login with facebook from now on.. This make no sense.
But, more annoyingly I'm not sure about that, it happen sometimes, not every time. Maybe someone can confirm that?

can I avoid that using JFBConnect?

Re: link facebook profile to jomsocial

JFBConnect has no such restrictions on how users can authenticate. A user can associate their Joomla account with all 10 of the social networks we support and they'll be able to login with each of those *and* their Joomla credentials whenever they return.

Additionally, we have great support for JomSocial built-in as well as JomSocial has great support for JFBConnect. That means it should be a very easy transition to JFBConnect for our Facebook and other social network integration.

I hope that helps answer your question, but if you're concerned about anything else, just let us know. We have excellent support that should be able to help you through anything.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: link facebook profile to jomsocial

We have a demo site for JFBConnect, but it's running an older version of both JFBConnect and JomSocial.. so it's not completely up-to-date with the latest changes in either extension:
http://demo.sourcecoast.com/

We don't promote the demo site anymore simply because we have a 30-day money back guarantee and we suggest users simply try JFBConnect on their own to see how it will work for them. If you can't get things going, you can get a refund without any issues. It's a better way to test things out instead of using some demo site that won't be setup like your site anyways.

I hope that helps, but of course, if you have any other questions, just let me know.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: link facebook profile to jomsocial

Re: link facebook profile to jomsocial

There are many sites that use both the JFBConnect and Invitex extensions together with no problems. As far as whether this would add complexity to your site, JFBConnect is very configurable and you can add as many or as few features as you want.

Re: link facebook profile to jomsocial

JFBConnect has an option to import any previous connections made in JomSocial. With that, your users shouldn't even notice that they're logging in with a different extensions (unless you're asking for more permissions for additional profile information that JFBConnect supports which JomSocial does not).

Beyond that, we have multiple options for existing users to connect their accounts to any of the social networks we support. The linking can happen if their social network email address is the same as an existing Joomla user on your site, or they can login with their existing account and use the SCLogin module to authenticate and connect to another social network, or various other ways.

I hope that helps, but if you need anything else, just let us know.

Finally, right now, we're having a $10 off discount of all new subscriptions. The last promotion we ran was in November of 2013 (a year and a half ago), so if you're interested, nows the time to try JFBConnect out.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: link facebook profile to jomsocial

very important questions to me:
- can I track in backend the amount of facebook users and users who linked his jomsocial account to facebook (can I identify the 2 cases too)?

- there is some kind of API to check if an user links his profile to facebook in frontend (in order to make a little profile page override with a link to the facebook profile)?
I mean something like that https://www.diigo.com/item/image/51ynl/4mqw

- when an user uses an Invitex referred link to register, the user looks invited even if he login with facebook in registration page?

-I use Socialize jomsocial template, there is some kind of JFC Connect integration for the Socialize toolbar on top?

There's an easy to read table in the back-end that shows exactly how many users have linked their account to Facebook or any of the other social networks we support. I'm not sure what the '2 cases' are, so I can't answer that.

There are multiple ways that you can allow users to authenticate with a social network to connect it to their existing account. Our SCLogin module supports that option natively (just look at the My Account menu above) and there's ways you can add the social links to any other pages, like profiles.

- when an user uses an Invitex referred link to register, the user looks invited even if he login with facebook in registration page?

Can you explain what you mean by this?

-I use Socialize jomsocial template, there is some kind of JFC Connect integration for the Socialize toolbar on top?

You can add our SCLogin module to any standard module position. You can also use the {JFBCLogin} tag anywhere on your site to add our login buttons. There are various points that JomSocial will also automatically add our login buttons, but I don't know if there's specific integration in the Socialize template. You should ask them if they support it and to add that support if they don't.

Alex

There's an easy to read table in the back-end that shows exactly how many users have linked their account to Facebook or any of the other social networks we support. I'm not sure what the '2 cases' are, so I can't answer that.

The 2 cases are:
1. an user join my site with login with facebook button
2. a jomsocial user links his jomsocial account to his facebook account.

I would avoid another login module, I already have enough buttons and forms in my site (also as you said jomsocial take your login buttons)
Is that a problem using JFBConnect?
But regarding this specific question, I'm not sure you totally get it (obiouvsly it's my fault current/smile ).
I'm asking: regarding the facebook users on my site, can I show a button who links to their facebook profile like the screenshot? (in an easy way, without hardcoded db queries in template)

Can you explain what you mean by this?

I will, I hope we will control this aspect too.

do you mean I can use {JFBCLogin} in any other module, or module override, or component view override?
If so, what kind of sourcery is that? current/big_smile

Very thanks for your time.
I'm doing all this questions because I don't have so much time to adapt a component to my needs, so I need to know if already have what I need.

Yes, both cases are supported in various ways.

You don't need to use our SCLogin module. You can add the "Connect" buttons to any pages you want using our Easy-Tag system {JFBCLogin} and the networks a user hasn't associated with will show. You will need to modify your JomSocial template files or any other place you want to add the connect buttons though, they won't all be added automatically.

It's our easy way to let you customize your site very easily without having to use modules. There's tags for just about all of our features. For more info, see:
