Right I stupidly clicked the sign in with facebook on this site when I already had an account registered on here, at the login stage when it dragged my info from facebook, it allowed me to change my username to the same username of the already made account, so there are actually 2 "kenno`s" on here (scary I know)
What it is doing on every visit is log me into the facebook account when all my info and posts are on the other one and it is annoying me!!

A few questions for anyone that knows,

1) How can I either get rid of the face book login from this account
2) Remove this account altogether or maybe merge it with my other one?
3) How do you allow facebook login for members who already have an account on your site, as I know as soon as I make my site live with this feature on current users will do the same as I have done on here

Any help apreciated

Facebook privacy settings allow you to remove the app for the site you are logged into, thus preventing automatic logins to that site.

Logged in members also get a Facebook login button that automatically logs in their logged in account when clicked.

Well-settled

Thanks Chris

I have removed the option on facebook which has worked for that account.

Regards the already registered users on my site, are you saying that when they come to login they can click the "more" option and use the "login" with facebook even though the site already has saved login details for them?

So for them users it will just use there facebook password to log them into the site as normal and "not" change there username etc to there facebook one?

Many thanks

Mark

yes except I think the button is right there above 'more', you don't need to go through the more page.
