Facebook Login

The Facebook Login is an alternative to Ektron CMS400.NET's standard login. Its advantage is that users can log in using their Facebook username and password, instead of having to set up and remember a separate Ektron CMS400.NET username and password.
Here is an example of Facebook Login control on a Web page.
The Facebook Login control allows both Membership users and Ektron CMS400.NET users log in to an Ektron CMS400.NET Web site. If users already have an Ektron CMS400.NET user profile, they can be prompted to link the Facebook username and password with that profile.

The Facebook Login only provides an ability to log in to an Ektron CMS400.NET site. It provides no other Facebook features, such as viewing or sending messages.

This section explains how to set up and use the Facebook Login feature through these topics. Facebook

If a user clicks a Facebook Login button but is not logged into Facebook, the page below appears

When the user completes this screen or if the user is already logged into Facebook, he is forwarded to a page (see example below) that prompts him to register or log in to Ektron CMS400.NET.

This screen asks the user if he has a membership account and, if so, would he like to connect his Facebook username and password with the Ektron CMS400.NET account. If the user agrees, he will access his membership account via the Facebook Login control with Facebook credentials from now on.

If the user does not have a membership account, he completes the lower half of the screen. This is the same screen that new members use to create accounts. See Also: Membership Server Control

From then on, the user can click the Facebook Login button to log into Ektron CMS400.NET using his Facebook username and password.

When the user logs out of Ektron CMS400.NET, that action does not log him out if Facebook. Conversely, if a user logs out of Facebook, he is not logged out of Ektron CMS400.NET.

Note: Facebook often caches some information in your browser. If you see JavaScript errors or other odd behavior, clear the browser cache, close all browser windows, and try again.
