Facebook login

Permalink
Has anyone created such a thing?
Instead of using OpenID or asking the user to register, many people prefer to just link their Facebook account with other sites.
Any docs or help on this is appreciated.

I've just been playing with building a facebook login implemented entirely within a package (so it doesn't need core mods).

It's working so far, but there are a few things I want to do with it before I set it free on the world.

The main thing I want to add next is allowing you to link your facebook account to an existing C5 account and then login with either.

Any progress on this as a package? It's been like a month... I'd love this, and pretty much for sure would use it.

This addon will help explode the use of C5.
Buddypress is has a FB connect so you can have your community linked right there with FB access.

Happy to pay for this addon.

Monitoring this thread for updates.

Thanks!

Would be interested to take a look at how you implemented it.

That's great to hear :)

Expected price?

I've changed it three times already since I initially submitted. There was a heap of work in it, but I really want to see it being used. So I've gone with $30.00 for the moment.

For the connection himself I decided to implement it on server-side (not js
facebook connect) following
http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/how-to-authenticate-your-user...

When the user connect, if it doesn't exist, a new user is created and the
user is automatically logged in.

Anyway I don't know the rules about submitting a package that "replicates"
an other one. Hope it will not be a problem.
Looking forward to see your work, so that I can try to move on a different
solution.

There is no rules against having competing packages.. in fact I would assume it is encouraged.

Where we differ I guess is that the ConnectedLogins package allows you to link the connected account to an existing Concrete5 account, and therefore allows multiple connected accounts to all link back to a single C5 account.

Argh, no. I implemented that solution too after seeing duplicated accounts.
Anyway my package supports one connection only.
Maybe I can move forward to implement twitter and other Auth to provide a
different package. But maybe you want to do the same =)

It have been over a month since you last post on this. Are you still waiting on the market place approval? Have they given you an estimated release date?

franz said me that they are changing part of session/login/authentication for next release of c5, so it's better to wait before approval to prevent break of c5 systems
