Looking to have Facebook Connect integrated into my 4images site so that I can get my users back!  Any ideas?  Please post ideas along with cost to integrate.  Thanks.

Your first three "must do" before you ask a question:
If I asked you to PM me, I meant PM to my primary account, this account doesn't accept PMs.

Has anyone succeed implementing Facebook connect to 4images gallery?


EDIT!

I've found pretty good tutorial how to integrate FC to any php script:
http://www.barattalo.it/facebook-connect-tutorial/comment-page-1/#comment-1499

So what does it do:
- add 2 new rows in user table
- check if user is already sign in with user id (facebook)
- if now, register new user based on facebook information (problem with getting their emails)
- if user is already sign in with unique id, just log him to 4images

Right now I'm facing problem with getting user email, because I won't allow that users can register through Facebook Connect without email.

EDIT 2:
I somehow manage to get user access with requesting user for extended permissions:
http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Extended_permissions
But I think this mod will be too much. Let me know if anyone else is willing to try this. Maybe I could give you some hand.

I have a dumb question...
Why would someone want a facebook connector?
I understand the concept of using the user account from facebook to log into 4images but why? what purpose does it give you on the 4images side?
Are you wanting to post images from the gallery on your facebook account? they already have a built in photo album.
are you wanting comments that you post in the gallery to be posted on your wall on the facebook side?
I guess, I just do not understand the relationship you are looking for between the two products?
I have had a facebook account for a year or so and still have not posted anything to it. have a bunch of family and friend that post giberish all the time, why? maybe I am getting too old :(

I may get bored and look into something along this line but need to know the concept and reason for it...

looking through the plugins on the facebook developer site, I see connectors for blog sites and bulletin board site which make sense because you are giving information that you want to share on those sites but I do not see any plugins for any type of gallery applications and that is why I am asking why?

sorry if this seems stupid but I just don't understand the purpose of a connector like this...
feel free to PM me if you do not want to post your response in this thread...

thanks for listening

My guess would be so they don't have to register on 4images site, use same login from FB, it would be convenient.

@ V@no,
Thanks, I thought that was what they were asking...

@ Lucifix or anyone else trying to work on this,
I have been playing with it for a couple of days, I kinda understand what they are doing with it but it seems like the main API package is nowhere to be found.
I got the facebook-php-sdk but it seems to be missing a bigger package that no longer exists according to the tutorial...

It looks like facebook is currently modifying the connectors, I will check the site in a couple of days. The already created plugins seem to want you to pay for their service :(
If anyone has a copy of all the packages that may make this work, PM or post me a link where I can get them. I currently have created a test app on facebook and can connect to it from my test webserver but still need more to get 4images to link to it.

Yes indeed, but you could also automatically publish news on users wall on facebook site.

Yes, Have been to that site already, very confusing. I downloaded the PHP kit but the script seems to need other scripts to work correctly. I keep getting functions not found. It seems there is a main kit over this one that is not on that site.
I did find another tutorial that had all the files but is dated mar18,2009 not sure if they have been updated since then.
http://www.pakt.com/pakt/?id=5e17b48f5679ab47
Not sure if or when I can get this working but will let everyone know. I am wondering, if someone logs into your site using their facebook account, what do you want to happen if they do not already have an account setup on your site? do you want it to automatically register them on your site without any verification of e-mail?
