It's really easy to use and efficient extension. It would have been good if it was possible to modify the info that will be taken from Facebook and how to use it somehow.

This extension worked great! I have been waiting for someone to write a Facebook Connect extension that is free of charge. This one worked!

I hope in your next project update, you add a functionality to integrate Facebook data with Jomsocial, K2, and Community Builder! Thanks.

I've tried several Facebook login extensions and all of them are very hard to configure and get working.
This extension is the opposite to that! Got it running in 5 minutes!

This extension is superb! It is user friendly and creating account + setting avatar in kunena is exactly 3 clicks away from your users! It's almost perfect and the best part it's free!

Good job!

I've tried several Facebook-Login extensions. No one actually worked for me and the support was dreadful.
But then I got to this one and it was unbelievable. It worked from the first installation onwards. I even didn't need to contact support. It's recommendable to everyone who wants to have a nice backend administration and a stunning frontend experience.

Keep going. Great Work!

I would say for a free product it is damn good. I donated just because he is free and I like that. I also donated because it is a good product that should really already be a part of joomla.

Thank you Sir

I am very much thankful to the developer of this extension.

I have a suggestion,
* When user gets authenticated from fb and record is save in local users table then there must be save a temporaray password for joomla login and password should be emailed to the user..
I hope developer will consider it.

Installed this app in 3 minutes, including setting up FB app id and secret. Works as described. Thanks!

I got it to work with minimal knowledge of the facebook API, even though I had to do some digging around. Mostly everything is explained, but I was confused when I was asked about a API ID and a API Secret (hint: you have to create a facebook application for this to work).

Unfortunataly I found that, once logged in, a log out button is needed, and maybe some info. When a user is logged in, only his picture is displayed, nothing more, not even his name. Hopefully that will be added in the future.

Also has a nice backend to check out which users logged in, and you can even get their emails and basic info for several stuff.

I'll be looking forward for more development on this one!
Thanks Saaraan!

I was looking for a solution to allow users to have more ease in registering on my site and therefore was looking for a facebook connect solution, with this extension I can use Kunena and have users use their facebook account to register. G-R-E-A-T! Thanks very much for this extension :)

I needed an application that would install seamlessly and work out of the box without a lot of forum-shopping for answers to technical problems. This one did just that!! And its free!! Thanks to the developer. When I find a free app that works like this, I make it my business to donate. This one clearly deserves it. Great job!!

This is such a great component, especially because it is free! Some more customizability in the back end of the component and module would always make it better, but you seriously have done a great job as it is!
Maybe a checkbox to select if the component should auto publish to the users facebook profile? or maybe a checkbox to allow the user to choose this?
I'm not complaining at all! This is such a great component! Only suggesting! Keep it up!

I've used this component on multiple sites, works like a charm every time! Some small configuration-errors (myself to blame) were solved only a few minutes after i posted a question on the support-forum.
