How to log out user from facebook application, but maintain login from facebook
Ask Question
up vote 9 down vote favorite

I have tried the PHP SDK (v.3.1.1), and the current Javascript SDK as suggested here : https://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/web/

now when trying to log out I have tried both FB.logout() ( for js ) and $facebook->getLogoutUrl() ;
as the documentation for both clearly state, these methods log the user out of the application as well as their facebook session.
But I only need to log the user out of the facebook application ( the test site ).

I have tried logging the user out of my test site, ignoring the facebook aspect. But in this case, when the user clicks the login button again, the login flow ( facebook authentication and redirect ) does not happen.

I also tried : ( as suggested by previous unresolved questions)$facebook->destroySession(); unset($_SESSION['fb_' . sfConfig::get('app_fb_config_id') . '_code']); unset($_SESSION['fb_' . sfConfig::get('app_fb_config_id') . '_access_token']); unset($_SESSION['fb_' . sfConfig::get('app_fb_config_id') . '_user_id']);

however, when redirecting to the login page, $facebook->getUser() still retrieves the user.
note : as per documentation example, I am using php sdk to login the user to my test site, and the js sdk, to render and facilitate the facebook login button.

additional :
the authentication i use is basically what documentation suggests :<?php define('YOUR_APP_ID', 'YOUR APP ID'); //uses the PHP SDK. Download from https://github.com/facebook/php-sdk require 'facebook.php'; $facebook = new Facebook(array( 'appId' => YOUR_APP_ID, 'secret' => 'YOUR APP SECRET', )); $userId = $facebook->getUser(); ?> <html> <body> <?php if ($userId) { $userInfo = $facebook->api('/' + $userId); ?> Welcome <?= $userInfo['name'] ?> <?php } else { ?> <div id="fb-root"></div> <fb:login-button></fb:login-button> <?php } ?> <script> window.fbAsyncInit = function() { FB.init({ appId : '<?= YOUR_APP_ID ?>', status : true, cookie : true, xfbml : true, oauth : true, }); FB.Event.subscribe('auth.login', function(response) { window.location.reload(); }); }; (function(d){ var js, id = 'facebook-jssdk'; if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;} js = d.createElement('script'); js.id = id; js.async = true; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js"; d.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(js); }(document)); </script> </body> </html>

Taking your code, and modifying just a bit:<?php define('YOUR_APP_ID', 'YOUR APP ID'); //uses the PHP SDK. Download from https://github.com/facebook/php-sdk require 'facebook.php'; $facebook = new Facebook(array( 'appId' => YOUR_APP_ID, 'secret' => 'YOUR APP SECRET', )); session_start(); $userId = $facebook->getUser(); if ($userId && !isset($_SESSION['fbdata'])) { $_SESSION['fbdata'] = array("userid" => $userId); } ?> <html> <body> <?php if ($userId) { $userInfo = $facebook->api('/' + $userId); ?> Welcome <?= $userInfo['name'] ?> <?php } else { ?> <div id="fb-root"></div> <fb:login-button></fb:login-button> <?php } ?> <script type="text/javascript"> window.fbAsyncInit = function() { FB.init({ appId : '<?= YOUR_APP_ID ?>', status : true, cookie : true, xfbml : true, oauth : true, }); FB.Event.subscribe('auth.login', function(response) { window.location.reload(); }); }; (function(d){ var js, id = 'facebook-jssdk'; if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;} js = d.createElement('script'); js.id = id; js.async = true; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js"; d.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(js); }(document)); </script> </body> </html>

I just added the saving of the user data into the session. Now, if you use this method, when the user get's into your page you should check if he already has a session, if so all is good no need to authenticate him.

When you want to log the user out of your app, but not out of facebook, just destroy that session:session_start(); session_destroy();

That should remove all saved data you have for the user, next time he visits your page you can start fresh with him.
I'm not a php programmer, and all of the php I used here is from my (very) limited knowledge and what I've found around.
