Hi,

When i register with Facebook I don't see any link to my privacy policy or the forum rules let alone the mandatory fields that need to be checked before one can even register with Facebook.

Is this normal and how does this reflect on the reason for A: a privacy policy and B: Adding a link to the privacy policy inside the facebook developer tools when setting up the login with Facbook option? Seems rather pointless then if it doesn't show anywhere. So I assume it should be shown.

Question 2 is if people register using Facebook, why are they then still sent the email containing the link to set a password?

Regards,

Martin

FB registration has own checkbox. This is the only and the main checkbox which ask user all necessary questions. If user agrees and check the checkbox then all is normal. The checkbox text can be changed and added whatever you want. Please read the doc: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/gdpr/rights-related-to-automated-decision-making-including-profiling/

That's increase the security, That's not a simple password.

That's a user activation link which makes the registered user status "active". And the password maybe used to login without FB account.

Hi,

is there a shortcode that i can use to link to the forum rules and the forum privacy rules? That way i can add those to the Facebook registering/login text.

@martin_1,

I'll suggest you go to the Dashboard > Forums > Tools > Privacy & Rules admin page, fin and check the "Checkbox: I Agree to Forum Privacy Policy" and "Checkbox: I Accept Forum Rules" options. Screenshot below: https://www.screencast.com/t/k8cwdB9MqbC

Hi Alvina,

I did set those, but when logging in with Facebook, those are being ignored and no longer mandatory.  It doesn't matter if one checks those boxes or not, the Facebook registration/login still functions.

That's why I though, maybe there is a shortcode I can add to the Facebook text so that it at least contains a link to the privacy policy and rules. I tried adding a link with some basic html but that get's stripped out.

I mean something like this %s which is used to create a link like this: public_profile which in turn links to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/permissions/reference#reference-public_profile

@martin_1,

Here are the URLs for direct access them:

https://example.com/community/?foro=page&view=privacy
https://example.com/community/?foro=page&view=rules

Change the example.com to your website domain and change the /community/ if your forum base URL is different.

But how can I create links from them? If I use

<a href="https://example.com/community/?foro=page&view=privacy">link</a>

it gets stripped.

Under Forum > Phrases > phrase number 459

It does allow the shortcode %s and creates a link from that. But just plain html it strips.
