Facebook log-in through Dart Den !

Postby Philsuma » Fri Aug 12, 2016 3:02 pm

We are attempting an integration of FaceBook and Dart Den that will allow all members to log in, post, reply and pretty much do everything here on the Dart Den forum FROM your Facebook account.

Everyone. Please either choose to log out, or look at the bottom of your 'log in' page and you will see a 'FaceBook square 'button'. It is small.

Click that button and/or otherwise see if you can log-in here on Dart Den through your FaceBook account.

We are in the early phases of testing this possibility, so please give it a try and post here onto this very thread with your results, observations and questions.

Thank you!

This is a FB integration that allows you to link your FB login to a registered account on DD. We are working on further refinements to the login / registration process, but for now, you can link your current DD profile to your FB account and use your FB credentials for login moving forward. You will be redirected to FB to login there, then sent back to DD to link to your account.

Here's a screen shot of the new little button on the login screen:

After being redirected to FB and logging in there, you should be returned to DD to link to your account:

If you can post what platforms you were using (e.g. iOS 9.x, Windows 10, OS X, Android) and what browsers (e.g. Explorer, FireFox, Safari, Chrome, etc) that would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help!

I just tried using this method to log in on my Android phone. I got an error message on Facebbok. It said this app is not set up, the app.is still in development mode.
I tried from My PC too and got the same message.

Rookie mistake. Appreciate the help debugging. If you could try again it'd be great.

I am able to 'get to' the new FB screen on my Samsung android cell phone but not my Windows PC.

'Logging in' via my cell phone = It seems like it just 'throws' me back into the Dart Den Forum with my same DD created account, and I see no real difference.

I surmise that we will need BRAND new people, who do not already have an existing DD account to truly test this integration, after all, it IS made to allow FaceBook users who do not have or wish to make an account here on DD, to be able to post and reply ect just like the registered users.

Yeah that's it - you log in with your FB credentials and it's now linked to your old DD account. This feature just associates your DD account to FB, and you can just pop over to FB to log in whenever you need to - for existing members, your profile should look the same. I'm looking at the auto-registration modification as well, but either way, phpbb does require a local database account. Hopefully this lets our users pick a tough password for the DD account they don't really have to remember, then just use their FB login for all future authentication.

Agree, we'd like to hear about experiences from new folks!

Cool Jon.

Everything looks 'the same' though?

I think what we are really trying to achieve is the ability for people who do NOT already have a Dart Den account, to be able to start posting and responding here from their Facebook account.

The WEIRD thing will be...what will their screen name be/ look like???

New people will have to register a local DD account and link their FB account to the DD account. There are some intricate phpbb customizations we can make to use your FB user name as your DD user name and auto register the account but this is beyond my phpbb skills :)

For now we can just link the accounts and use FB login as the authentication method.
