Joomla Facebook Connect 3

With Joomla Facebook Connect 3, Facebook users can quickly register and login on your Joomla websites. This free Joomla extension was re-written from ground up and should work out of the box. Facebook Login module can be configured to show only login button or form.

first third

Extension is available in only English language, files can be found at Github, you can help me translate this extension in other languages, just download, edit and let me know.

Download (For Joomla 3.x) Download (For Joomla 1.5+ & 2.x)

  • Demo: Facebook connect works pretty much as in this page. Only difference is you’ll be using it on Joomla, here I’m using it on WordPress.
  • Creating Facebook App and Getting App ID and App Secret : Click here.
  • Please do recommend and review this extension at Joomla Extension Directory.

How to Update

Just un-install old Facebook Connect component and module from “Extension Manager”, and install the latest extension downloaded from here.

What happens to my old connected users after update?

Nothing! component uses same old database table, so you’ll not lose your old Facebook connected users.

  1. Hi, I’m interested in an extension for joomla 3 that allows me to interface with certain items facebook. I would like to make it possible for my clients to take advantage of a discount when sharing my articles in their boards of facebook, I’ll explain, I wish at registration gave their consent, or one like it, that would render certain items to all their friends and contacts, in the face of what we owe to automatically send a discount code that will insert manually on their contracts. In case of cancellation we will have a message that makes us understand to cancel the discount.
    Could I get a quote on the cost.
    With Best Regards

  2. hi Saaraam

    i am getting this error. Please help me..

    The page isn’t redirecting properly

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

  6. Hi Saaran, great tool and great integreation! I have a small problem: the field with login and password are offset creating a rather ugly look. Please take a look on my website on the “Facebook Login” button on the menu row. In future relases I would hope to skip having a pop-up window when signing in. Other than that, great!

  9. Hi,

    I am very interested in this module but unfortunately I found the following message when I click on the download button:

    Warning: include_once(live_connect.class.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/saaraan/saaraan.com/index.php on line 2

    Warning: include_once(): Failed opening ‘live_connect.class.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php5/lib/pear’) in /home/saaraan/saaraan.com/index.php on line 2

    Fatal error: Class ‘MocrosoftLiveCnt’ not found in /home/saaraan/saaraan.com/index.php on line 3

    I look forward to having a solution.

    Thank you very much

  10. Hi Saran,

    I would like to show only the fb button and eventually use another login and register component. I mean I don’t want to see:
    Remember Me
    Forgot your password?
    Forgot your username?
    Create an account

    But I can’t find out where this comes from…
    Is it from another joomla extension? I don’t find these sentences in your extension language files…

    Thanks a lot for sharing your great work :)
    this module is very easy to use

  12. Hello,
    Thank you, this is working fine, except that I don’t know how to do if a user already exists in Joomla, could you explain how to manage this?

    • Hi existing users just have to enter their old password in order to link their account with Facebook.
