Been looking around a bit and in order for my community and alike to be able to use their Facebook accounts on WordPress,  I wonder if that will work as well with wpForo?

Looking to use https://nextendweb.com/social-login/ for this and I kinda figure if they can log in to WP they should be able to login to wpForo automatically or do we need an additional login bridge for this?

Hi @homdax,

wpForo has "Facebook Login" Feature, you can find the options in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > API's (Social Network) Tab, so you don't need an additional plugin for that, also check the Topic above to get information how to set up Facebook Login:

Thanks Chris, but I fear I may have expressed myself poorly.

1. Some users/editors will have access to the WP site with their FB login, should they want to select that login option.

2. Forum Members will have access to wpForo with their FB login, should they want to select that login option.

Do I need to activate 2 FB login app id, or will one suffice? If one, which?

@homdax,

wpForo doesn't have separate users, wpForo uses WordPress users system(User Registration, User Login, User Reset Password). If your WordPress website has Facebook Login, that will mean that all of your plugins will work with no need of other Facebook Login API.
