Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

MyFacebook Connect 3.6

17 Feb 2016 Edited
MyFacebook Connect is a plugin which lets you login and register through Facebook on any MyBB installation. If you like MyFacebook Connect, consider offering me a coffee!

Do you feel Facebook login is not enough for your board? Flyover lets you login and register with 25+ social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Discord, Steam, Google, Tumblr, TwitchTV, WordPress and more! For more informations, read Flyover 2.4.

MyFacebook Connect can easily let your users register and login using their Facebook accounts: it differs from existing (both free and paid) plugins thanks to the provided PHP SDK and a lightweight, transparent integration. A must-have for almost every community and compatible with the latest MyBB releases!

As an admin, you can decide to use two different types of registration: Fast Registration lets you register through Facebook with only one click and one front-end redirect. This means that every user who would like to login into your board and doesn't have a registered account will be registered and logged in with a single click of a button. If he has already an account registered, he'll be just logged in and his account will be linked to his Facebook one. If he has already an account and its already linked as well, he'll be just logged in.

With Fast Registration option disabled, every user who hasn't got a registered account and logs in with Facebook will be asked to choose a new username and eventually an email address different from his Facebook one. By default, inputs will be filled with his existing Facebook data but they'll be able to choose whatever username and email they'll want. In addition to this they'll be asked to select what data to import from Facebook, respecting their privacy slightly better than the simple one-click registration process.

Thanks to all the guys who tested my plugin and thanks to all of them who will test my future versions.

Please note that MyBBoost runs on Flyover 2.4. Facebook login and registration is slightly different in MyFacebook Connect.

Now accepting donations

I am now accepting donations from anyone that wants to thank me for my plugins (and particularly for my My* Connect plugins) with a little amount of money. I have released many plugins for free but I am a student and I need to maintain my studies, hence why I am asking for an economical support.

You are free to decide if and how much donating. If you'd like to do it, offer me a coffee.

Who's using it?

MyFacebook Connect has been downloaded over 100.000 times and counting. Many users have appreciated it for its ease of use and its high performances: here are some randomly picked up feedbacks.

Have tested it this and installed it on my forum and works like a charm.
This is the best solution for Facebook integration for MyBB. It's very simple yet powerful.
I love this plugin, it's very simple to use. Good job!
Such a shame this didn't come out sooner. No point us installing it now since we are moving to Xenforo, but this is another excellent plugin.
That's a great plugin! Thank you man!

Feature listing

At the moment, MyFacebook Connect comes with the following features:
  • Provides transparent login with Facebook to your MyBB installation
  • One-click login/registration: if Fast Registration setting is set to off, it will ask the user to choose an username from scratch and to decide what informations to import from Facebook
  • Automatically synchronizes Facebook account data with MyBB account, including avatar, birthday and cover (if Profile Pictures plugin is installed)
  • 5 dedicated settings that users can manage and change to whatever they like, controlling what data to sync with their Facebook accounts
  • Existing users can link their Facebook accounts to their accounts on your board within their User Control Panel and with the click of a button, without necessarily create a new account from scratch (or ask admins to merge their accounts)
  • Facebook-linked accounts can be unlinked with ease in the User Control Panel
  • Choose to disable registrations globally but let MyFacebook Connect run on its own, restricting access to Facebook users only
  • 2 registration modes you can choose to use within your Admin Control Panel: One Click Registration (Fast) and Two Step Registration
  • Send a welcome PM containing a randomly generated password to every Facebook-registered user
  • Redirects logged in/registered users to the same page they came from
  • Choose to restrict registrations to verified-only Facebook users
  • Choose the usergroup to add Facebook-registered users
  • Who's Online List support

Hi, use the latest version from GitHub which solves the issue thanks to Error 191 "can't load URL" using facebook login app.
zyra 24 Sep 2017
It still gives me the same error message, after downloading from the github repository and replacing all containing files with the ones in my ftp folder
zyra 25 Sep 2017
I thought I answered you, but I can't see my last message anymore...
The github version doesn't work neither for me... any ideas on how I might fix this issue ?
Shade 25 Sep 2017
Do you have a test board where I can see it in action?

MyFacebook Connect 3.3 is out

This is a bugfix and feature release. Minor issues have been addressed, including:
A new feature has been added which lets you opt out from Facebook scopes (currently: user_location and user_birthday) if you don't want to use them. This has been asked by @Swardu here.

Download the new version in the first post.

How to update

Unzip the package and replace the old files with the new ones. You will be asked to run the upgrade script which will update settings and database fields accordingly.

How I solve this.

Don't know why, but sometimes my editor adds corrupted chars which look exactly like normal ones. I have updated the packages accordingly, please report any other issues.

Cheers! Enjoy the coffee. I got your plugin to work the second time I tried it. It's easy to get lost in the Facebook requirements but the trick is to stick closely to the plugin's instructions. Thanks for the work.
