Notes:

  • Site visitors that will login to the site using the Facebook login option will become regular users.
  • When the user logins with Facebook, the theme redirects the user to My Profile page and imports email. Read more here about how to create My profile page.
  • If Facebook cannot share email, the theme will add an email automatically as [email protected] and user can update his email from the profile.
  • If Facebook login doesn’t show any email – it means there is already a user with that email address.
Please do not test the Facebook login with the same account that you used to create the APP.
