Good mods for connecting Facebook and PhpBB

Hi all,

A Facebook question!

Among the list of existing Facebook mods for PhpBB, is there one that is really good, and that allows to integrate the new OAuth and Like buttons? They talked about that during F8, but I don't know if plugin modders had time to implement it.

Hi !

I think you could give a try to Facebook Connect mods, that is well supported.

* The MOD automatically creates an account for them. Upon first log in, they are asked to enter an username. Language of the user can automatically be detected!
* Admin can decide to also ask a password upon first login.
* Alternatively, people can link their Facebook account to an existing user account rather than creating a new one.
* Users can use the 'Log me on automatically each visit' and 'Hide my online status this session' boxes for Facebook logins too.

Which mod are you talking about? I think you forgot a link or a name in your post Wink

Without trolling or spamming about IPB, Invision Power Board integrates per default Facebook, and it's not just a small I like link at the bottom of the page, but the full stack, including Facebook Connect, I like buttons on each topics, the Facebook panel and so on.

So, my question is, litterally, why still using phpBB and fighting against mods?

Okay, but IPB is not the ONLY software providing this. vBulletin does it as well just to point it.
