    Thanks for updating Kyle!

    It isn't relevant to connect a single user's two accounts. For new registrations, it would pull the email from the Facebook account.

    Also, what happens to those current members if they try logging in with their facebook account? For example, if their facebook email address is different to their original membership email address, I'm guessing vB has no way of knowing it's the same user, so are you gonna get two different accounts for one person?

    How does vB resolve this issue?
    They should log into your forum using their username and password. Then they can click the "Facebook Connect" button. vBulletin will associate their Facebook User ID with their vBulletin User ID and keep track of it. Email address is irrelevant.

    As long as they have the box checked to publish to facebook, yes.

    Right, get that now, thanks.

    So once they login with their facebook account into the vB forum, does this then mean any new threads created in the forum will be mentioned automatically on their FB wall?

    If they login with facebook, it creates an account in the vBulletin software with their facebook auth info.

    I still don't get the benefit of this facebook integration. If users can login to a forum with their facebook account, won't this limit the number of actual registrations?

    I would imagineb ecause there was minimal effort to make it compatable since most of the work that is done is from the vBulletin API.

    I don't want to get flack for asking but it's a very legitimate question. Why was yet more time and effort spent in making this app compatible with VB 3, a product that has supposedly been dead for more than 2 years? There is far more in VB 4 and other products that need much work and should take priority over this.
