Log in to ocPortal using your Facebook account

We've just released Facebook Connect for ocPortal.

It provides 5 new blocks for integrating with Facebook, and allows people to login using their Facebook account.

Download: Facebook support - ocPortal


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.

  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks, Harry.

I'm going to give it a go. Are you saying that I need to make sure to download the new version from ocPortal or is that version included in 7.1.3?

I've come quiet far with this tonight - hope I'm almost there.

I've got the Facebook login button and Friends box displaying and communication with facebook going on, but it's not working correctly - yet.

Brain is a bit fried now - so I'll give it another shot with a fresh mind tomorrow.

I'm pleased to report that I've got the facebook integration working with my site. It's not difficult - OCportal does all the work - I just made a few wrong assumptions as to how to go about the task.

Care to share how what you did to set it up successfully?

Also, if you are logged into Facebook, does it log you out of your Facebook session when you use your Facebook credentials to sign in?

Oops …. ok that's a problem. Thanks for pointing it out !

If I'm logged into facebook, my test site continuously reloads or something.

How did you fix this ? Did I miss a forum post on this issue ?

Nick-

It's discussed in this thread:
http://ocportal.com/forum/topicview/misc/deploying/issue-facebook.htm?start=40#post_73237

I reluctantly gave up on using the Facebook add-on because I an unwilling to risk the ire of my sites visitors.

I am. instead, focusing on making sure my contents syndicated to Facebook and Twitter using RSS Graffiti and Twitterfeed, respectively.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your advice - I read the thread.

This problem is above my level - but for what its worth - it seems to be intermittent on my site.

Yesterday my test site would not even load if I was logged into facebook.

But, this morning I logged into facebook, then clicked on a link to my site - and everything seemed fine and worked.

So …. I don't know …… I DON"T want to worry if my site is working for visitors or not, true.

Thanks,
Nick

That has been Chris's frustration with the issue. The problems are intermittent which make them difficult to track down and fix. The issue with being logged out from Facebook was pretty consistent for me. For that reason, I chose to give up on the add-on for now and seek out another tool to syndicate content to Facebook (I am using RSS Graffiti which works really well). I do really miss having the ability for users to sign up with their Facebook account.

Is this problem when you use one browser logging into both your site and FaceBook or will it happen also when you use two browsers, one each to log into each site?

Steve-

As I recall, it only happens when you use a single browser but I think most people use a single browser and many keep their Facebook page open (I know a lot of my family and friends are like this).

I'd test the different browser to confirm but I have removed the Facebook add-on. I hate giving up the Facebook authentication but I am very happy with the way RSS Graffiti is dribbling out my content to Facebook.
