Solved Facebook connect login

Post by Keltic on November 24th 2015, 5:46 pm

Basically when i login to my site as admin the fb connect module wants me to register new account, the irony is i'm only person with this issue.
I initially tried to create the app using my main fb account but then realised i needed to use a separate account so as not cause conflict, i deleted first app and created new account on fb and app. The only thing i can see is i need to unlink my admin account from fb but there is no option to do this. Help please Rolling Eyes

I originally made the app on my personal facebook account but when i tried to login it kept coming back with developer error, looking into that i saw that i needed to create the app on a separate facebook account , i deleted the app on my fb account and created the app on a fb account i created specifically for my site.

My thought was because i had made a new app i may need to unlink and then relink my account to facebook

You will need to contact Facebook about that.

No, that's what's annoying, it gave you a way to link the account but no option to unlink.

If you deleted the first app, did you remove the information from the administration panel? I mean replace it with the new app.

I'm going to mark this as solved, there is no way to do this via facebook from what i can find if the app is deleted first and no way to do it via forum, really the forum need an unlink option as well. I basically recovered my forum using founders tool to a few days ago before i tried to do this and redid the facebook connect and now i can log in via facebook button.


Thankyou to SLGray for all your assistance, it's been much appreciated.
