  • [Forum] Register only with facebook connect

    I am going to start a new forum where my target market is facebook users. I was wondering if I disable account register in admincp, if people could still create accounts using facebook connect as I'd like to require all forum accounts to have a facebook account and use the account to connect to the forum.

    If you disable registration, I believe you disable it for FB Connect also although I haven't tried this...
    Vote for:

    - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
    -
    *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
    - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
    - Highlight the correct navigation tab when you are on a custom page
    - "Quick Route" Interface...
    - Allow to use custom icons for individual forums

      Yeah, I found that out, but I figured out a way to do it after reading a bit more on FB Intergration plug-ins. Putting the code below in the footer template right below the fb connect call. Even with registering off, it still creates an account using your facebook info.

      Code:
      <script>
        window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
          FB.init({appId: 'your-app-id-goes-here', status: true, cookie: true,
                   xfbml: true});
        };
        (function() {
          var e = document.createElement('script'); e.async = true;
          e.src = document.location.protocol +
            '//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js';
          document.getElementById('fb-root').appendChild(e);
        }());
      </script>

        Hi Stabatha

        This is my situation..
        I have a landpage which is parked. http://www.gaga.com and the forums which I am developing http://f.gaga.com

        I also want to basically market to the facebook user..
        Will the above script remove the regular login option?
        Can I put a link on my splash page indicating a click directly to facebook?

        Can I see your webpage and how it works?

        And last but not least.. exactly what template did you add this code too? And how do I access it?

        Thanks for any help

            Code:
            <script>
              window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
                FB.init({appId: 'your-app-id-goes-here', status: true, cookie: true,
                         xfbml: true});
              };
              (function() {
                var e = document.createElement('script'); e.async = true;
                e.src = document.location.protocol +
                  '//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js';
                document.getElementById('fb-root').appendChild(e);
              }());
            </script>
            So I found the footer template.. but you mentioned the fb connect call.. what would that code look like?

            Is it this code that I should paste it under in the existing footer?

            {vb:raw ad_location.ad_footer_end}
            <vb:if condition="$vboptions['enablefacebookconnect']">
            {vb:raw facebook_footer}
            </vb:if>


            Thanks
