Facebook Connect V2 v2

Release Notes

Plugin re-created to work with Elgg 1.6, original work @Dave

Warning: this plugin is in the early stages of development. All feedback welcome to help us improve it. I do not recommend you use this on a production site just yet.


A new user who signs up via FBConnect will have their Elgg profile populated with their Facebook profile information and status, the avatar is also pulled across. The user's Elgg profile is sync'ed with their Facebook account, so each time they login in, it will update. Users can unsync their profile from Facebook and fill in the Elgg one, if they want.


  • If Facebook goes down or they disable FBConnect, any users who have logged in using FBConnect will not be able to access their account on your Elgg site.
  • It does not yet work with custom profiles, only the default Elgg one.

To use:

  • Upzip and add to your mod directory
  • Enable the plugin
  • You need to register your site as an app with Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/developers/createapp.php - to obtain a key and secret
  • Once you have created your app, under 'connect' you need to enter a Connect URL (route-to-your-elgg/mod/fconnect/) and Account preview UR
