I can confirm that "JFBConnect backend > Configuration > General > 'Send New User Email' option is set to No (although I presumed that would only send to the new user and not the Admin as well, but I turned it off just to be sure!)

When you say "There is also an option in JFBConnect for sending user emails for social registrations" is that referring to above and if not please advise where the setting is?

For the actual message, from the source this is the starting point of the HTML in case you recognise it:
    <base href="https://faenet.org/" target="_blank" />
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="x-apple-disable-message-reformatting">


        /* What it does: Remove spaces around the email design added by some email clients. */
        /* Beware: It can remove the padding / margin and add a background color to the compose a reply window. */
        body {
            margin: 0 auto !important;

The actual message starts:

Awesome! A new user registered on the site.
New Registration!

Hello Buzzy Cnayl,

This is a notification to let you know that a new user has registered on the site. This e-mail contains their details

We are using JFBConnect in conjunction with EasySocial and when a new user registers using the Facebook account option, an email is sent to Admins announcing this, but we have set in both Joomla & EasySocial not to send notification emails for new registrations.   The emails look like they come from EasySocial but they have said it must be JFBConnect not respecting the "do not send" option and asking for one to be sent.  Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks - in the end it solved itself as we changed it from having admin approve user to auto approve, so now when they register via social media, it logs them right in and to the page selected.   I guess something about having it set that they can'y login until approved by an administrator confuses something somewhere!

I am using JFBConnect buttons on an EasySocial system (with the JFBConnect selected as active in EasySocial) but when a new user registers via the Facebook icon, the first time they log in they don't get re-directed as per the setting in JFBConnect (General | Login/Logout)7

Additional info:
It seems this is only an issue when in the settings you have "Skip Joomla User Activation" turned off (so an admin has to approve registration.)  If it's set to bypass then it does re-direct user when they are logged in as the final part of the registration.

Just noticed how quiet it seems to be - last blog post almost a year ago?  Last update in December - wondering what is going on, is it some secret project?!  Thanks.

Great, I'm happy to go with as it is.   I suppose my concerns about it messing up something comes from another issue I'm having with using HTTPS, but I will start another thread for that .

Hi and sorry I just saw I hadn't responded to this.  My issue is all around trying to squeeze things into a small space and after a user logs in, they see the layout as per img1.png


What I was trying to get it to look like is shown in img2.png - The orientation is set to Side and Left for the social buttons yet they are underneath the logout button, not to the side of it.

In the end I have "gludged it" by using two copies of the SCLogin module, one set to only show the social buttons and one the logout button (which is how img2.png was created) but I'm wondering if this is likely to cause problems and anyway feels like it is not the "correct" way to do this!

Users must be able to share their posts they make in the activitystream of Jomsocial with their...
Category: JFBConnect

I turned that setting on but now see "Submit for Login Review   Some of the permissions below have not been approved for use by Facebook. Submit for review now or learn more. " ?

Ok so I'm guessing the answer is "you can't" !

I have Orientation set as Side for the Social Button Settings, but after a user logs in the buttons for "Connect this site to your Social network?" always appear on the bottom. How to make them also on the side?

I can confirm I had the same issue on two sites (with different templates) And this fix worked, thanks.

My Extension Check screen is showing that I have Community Builder extension 5.1.0 installed but the latest version is 5.2.0.  All other items are showing 5.2.n  but I can't see how to update the Community Builder one (from the Joomla control panel it shows all extension up to date)   I have installed com_jfbconnect_j2.5_v5.2.2.zip

Thanks for that. I can confirm using that update fixes the problem.

The site is www.buzzytantra.com but I also tested on www.quintasensual.org and see the same.   I have created a test login on quintasensual.org/login which you can use if required

I had the User menu working okay as a dropdown on SCLogin module after the user logged in. Now what happens is that the menu button is showing but if you click it al that happens is it re-loads the current page. If I set it to 'List' rather than 'Dropdown' it works - plus as I mentioned it was working before as a Dropdown.

Not sure if it has stopped working since an update of SCLogin or some other change on my website but any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks - I have found a work around in that as CB does detect the login when not using FB/Google I can use the CB autoactions plugin to redirect the user. Not a particularly elegant solution but at least it works for now!   Good luck with the 'new' CB API info. My experience has been that they are not always the best at documenting things but are trying to sort that, perhaps why more info is starting to come out from them.

Community Builder has an Activity Stream you can add (CB Activity) and also has an ability to create actions from various events (CB Autoactions) and it is these that do not recognise the login by Facebook/Google+  but do recognise if you log in by username / password. 

When I asked Joomlapolis if it was a CB issue that using JFBConnect to log in did not fire the event, their response was that I should not use JFBConnect as    "...because the one you are using is not designed for CB. It's not registering users with CB API or logging in users with CB API. So any users registering through it will go out of sync and will not fire any of CBs login/registration triggers."

I have JFBConnect and SCLogin on my website (latest versions downloaded yesterday)

When a user logs in by clicking the Facebook button they are redirected to the specified page. If they log in just entering a name and password the login works ok but they are not redirected (they stay on the same page)

Another quirk is that when they login with name/password, it does fire a login event in Community builder, however when they login with the Facebook button, no login event is generated.

Not sure if this is one bug (inteconnected) or two separate ones, but anyway it means I can't use this product on my website yet.

Wondering if any updates on this.  I find that if I log in with SCLogin clicking on the Facebook button, the redirect works fine, but if I log in with name and password (my system is running Community builder) it logs in ok but stays on the same page.

The redirect URL is set for the same  page in both SCLogin module and JFBConnect configuration.

Cannot get auto share on read to work
Category: JFBConnect

Might be worth trying changing the timer from 0 to at least 1 just to see if that is the problem but other than that Ok, well I'll have to leave it to the Sourcecoast people to give you an answer hopefully.

Cannot get auto share on read to work
Category: JFBConnect

Ah, might have missed that bit. The changes Facebook made mean I think it won't get posted to their page, however if what you are saying is that you don't get the popup on your own web page when they look at the blog page that is something else.  I note you say you have the timer set to 0 but as I understand it that would not be allowed by Facebook so you may need to change that anyway.

I did not get the pop up on my pages initially and found it was down to having jQuery enabled on the template settings I was using.  Even though I didn't get the pop up though the action was still being recorded in the OpenGraph activity log in JFBConnect - do you see anything there?

Facebook have been making changes and there is some 'confusion' now as to what of these sort of things will work.  I'm hoping for a nice message soon from Sourcecoast explaining all the Open Graph stuff just as soon as they understand what Facebook is doing!

Open Graph actions - stream story not open graph story issue
Category: JFBConnect

Thanks for the reply. It explains it thanks but of course doesn't really help, but that's a Facebook issue !    I guess the good news is I probably have it all set up and working correctly configuration wise, but the bad news is after all that setting up it might now be something you can't do any more!

I have noticed that even though I run the 'auto tune' I still get the message on Facebook developer that my app needs to be updated to the "Feb '13 breaking changes" and am guessing it is all linked to this issue?

Many thanks for all you help and feedback so far.

Open Graph actions - stream story not open graph story issue
Category: JFBConnect

OK fixed the web site issue and now I do get the pop up on the site web page but it still does not show up in the Facebook activity log even though I get everything ok on the my web site (pop up shows, the user account has the activity listed and it shows in the admin log on the web site) ?
