Running SMF 2.1 RC2, how do I get Facebook to hook up with the forum..

Bigguy

You mean for login. :ques

Skhilled

You need a mod for it. Not sure if there are any available for that yet.

Bigguy

I haven't seen any on the mod site.

The only mod available for it is the Social Login mod from smfpacks.com, but it's not free

I read on it, but can not find out if it's compatible with SMF 2.1

Oldiesmann

It is compatible with 2.1. I've got it installed on the new site I'm working on, which runs 2.1 RC2

OK Thanks.. Can I ask you what this mod actually does. Like what purpose does it serve..

Oldiesmann

It allows users to register and/or login with Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn and Github (you can configure which ones are available and such) and sync data between their social media account(s) and the forum. See https://www.smfpacks.com/sociallogin/ for more info.

When you say sync data between their social accounts, does this mean if I make a post on the forum, I can also display it on FB.

I guess what I am trying to do is have a link to FB, so when I or anyone makes a post they can also make it appear on FB

Oldiesmann

I'm not aware of any mod that does that.

You could try https://dlvrit.com/ that's what I use.  You can add feeds from your site and have them post to twitter, facebook etc.
