Merged [Merged topic] Login via Facebook for Kunena
is it possible to connect kunena with facebook?
if its not, did somebody know a good extension to connect joomla with facebook!
so that facebook user are able to login joomla with their facebook account?
Please browse the Joomla Extensions Directory for ideas that might help you in your search for connecting Joomla and Facebook.
i've done that first, but the only extension i've found to connect facebook-kunena was with a 1 year license!
i thougt somebody in the "kunena-forum" couldt give me a hint...
it would be nice so syncronise the kunena user with facebook! such as userpic...
For now, nothing like that for Kunena exists but you can use Jomsocial which has this function.
I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.
If you don't know what position I am talking of, here is a picture to demonstrate:
It used to say "login", "register" and "forgot password", but I took that away since I have the Facebook connect button. Now the button is on the right of the website, but I want it there where the old login button was. Does anyone know how to do this?
I should have known better. Why? First of all, where does Kunena itself provide a Facebook login possibility on this site?
That should have been a telling sign.
After I installed JomSocial on my site, I found out that it is not a simple plugin, but an entire template that tries to run your website or elements of it. JomSocial is difficult to customize, support is quick and kind but not very effective (over 100 exchanged messages in 3 months time), and the amount of features that come along with JomSocial is tremendous. Among others, JomSocial comes with Forum features, user profiles etc. --in brief: features that make the use of Kunena on a site redundant.
The interaction of JomSocial with Facebook is frequent and to my feeling out of my control.
I paid about € 100,- for JomSocial (which is ridiculous if you consider that I deliberately chose for Kunena because it is a free-of-charge, open source plugin) and I advise all webmasters considering Facebook login to consider other options.
I don't know if there are, but I'd be glad to learn about them.
You want to be able to register/login to Kunena using your Facebook account, right?
Kunena is not standalone but a component for Joomla, right?
So, why not use a free extension to have users register to your site using their facebook credentials?
I have used probably all of the free ones out there...I am not all that happy with most and they come with too many stuff I have no use for...
So the best plugin out there for facebook integration-register/login is
This is solely a PLUGIN, not a module, not a component...you don't have to use it's very own login module, that is...
It works for Kunena too! You don't have to use Joomla's separate login module either
Very easy to use, one just has to login using his/her facebook login details and he/she is immediately registered to the site & forum.
If you want to display that functionality, I guess all you need to do is upload an image/logo and insert a link/code somewhere in the Kunena's template to display that in the frontend...
Well, I might use it after all as well for my Kunena forum..
