Already Registered Error Logs Me Out of Facebook

9 years 3 months ago #168902 by TracyWelch6
My site is both new users and legacy users (people registered before I installed CB Facebook Connect). I happen to be a legacy user myself. Here's the issue I'm seeing. I have multiple tabs opened in my browser because I always have Facebook opened.

When I go to my site, and hit the Facebook Login button, it throws me an error like it should, saying I'm already registered. But it then logs me out of my facebook session in the other tab.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening. I can live with it, but for other members, it's not very user friendly.

Unfortunately no, when clearing your Facebook session on-site it also clears it everywhere else. This is simply how Facebooks API functions. Without doing so you'd be stuck in an infinite loop of attempting to re-login.
