Facebook Connect button alone can pretty much collect all the information we need from user. But sometimes we need to collect additional information during the registration, such as favorite Color, number of kittens, movie star name etc. To collect such information, we can use Facebook Registration Plugin. Instead of just showing Facebook Registration plugin, we will use Facebook Login button and call Registration plugin later. To make it even better I have used colorbox by Jack Moore.
With Joomla Facebook Connect 4, 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.
Posting pictures on Facebook works similar as Posting to Facebook Page Wall, you can post not just photos, but questions, status, notes etc in a similar way. In previous post we have seen how we can post a photo to page wall by specifying its relative path, but in this tutorial we will upload picture and directly post to user profile page using an upload form.
