I'm using ocP 9.06 with the appropriate Facebook ad on.  When I visit the site as a guest, using IE9, the log in in the Personal block defaults with the option to log in as a site user.  There's also an 'onclick' that you can click to log in using your Facebook log in.  Once you click on it, you are indeed able to log in using your FB account.  However there's no link recognizable by my screen reader to switch back to a Chip & Tracy's Place username.  Also in Firebox, also visiting as a guest, see no recognizable link to switch to either.  You can log on as a registered site user, but there's no link for switching to a FB account.  If I use my screen reader's review hot keys to scan the page, I can see the verbage where the link should be, but it will not allow me to click on it.  Is this something that can be fixed?

Unfortunately all the Facebook stuff is pretty much outside our control. This may change if we move from their Javascript implementation to a server-side one, but currently that's not planned currently.

Essentially once you log in with Facebook, it should stay logged in as long as you are logged in to Facebook. You can override it to a local login via manually going to /adminzone and putting in your login details.

  • 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.

I gotcha Chris.  Makes sense and is no big problem.  I do have a couple of visitors to my site that are blind friends that do have site log ins as well as Facebook log ins.  I need to convey a message to them about the accessibility of the add on.  I've looked around my files here and can't seem to find the code.  I know there's a comcode tag that I can use to place a hidden message on the page that will only be visible to screen readers.  Is it the "access surround"  tag?  I just don't remember.  thanks

Code

[surround="accessibility_hidden]...[/surround] would do it.
