Sorry, I missed adding them to the installation. It's fixed now. Please redownload the ZIP-file and reinstall the plugin. Sorry!

Did you upload it completely? Do you use MyBB 1.6?

Thanks so much! We have over 2000 likes on facebook but only 300 members on the forum. I suspect this may well dramatically increase our membership but am not sure! Will add it to the site now and then send out a facebook message once our new theme is finalised.

How does the transferring old logins into a facebook login work? Do you have to have the same email address and then it will work fine?

Best of luck, I'm pretty sure you'll get new members with this method if it's so easy to sign up.

Existing users just have to click the "Connect" link. My plugin will then bridge the login (they will be automatically logged in when using facebook but can still login with their old password too if they wish) and import anything that is missing in the existing profiles - e.g. avatar, birthday, website.
The email adress does not need to be the same.

Try to reupload the fbconnect.php and see if that helps. Do you have other plugins installed?
