The "Login / Logout" configuration area provides multiple settings to control the user experience when registering or logging into your site. This section controls things like where a user should be redirected after logging in, if they should be automatically logged in when visiting your site, or if a popup message notifying them that a login is in process.
The settings below control where the user is redirected to after initial registration or after returning and logging into your site. In both cases, the first option in the selection drop-down is 'Same Page'. If 'Same Page' is selected, the user will be returned to the page they originally clicked the social network login button from.
This is the location where the user will be redirected to on initial registration with a social network. All subsequent log-in redirections are set through the Returning User Redirection setting. This is useful for a "New User Welcome" page or to send the new users to the JFBCRequest module (if installed) to invite their friends.
Set this to the location where the user will be redirected to when they return to your site and login again.
Set this option to specify whether the social login buttons will be shown on the Joomla user login page.
When enabled, if a user returns to your site who is currently logged into Facebook and has already connected that Facebook account to your Joomla site, they will be automatically logged in.
Set this option to specify whether a logged in user will be logged out of both Joomla and Facebook.com or just Joomla only when they choose to log out of your site.
Set this option to specify whether to show a popup notifying the user that the login process is occurring.
Set this option to specify whether to show the login credentials in a popup or to be redirected to the social network to login.
