    Module doesn’t show up on the Register tab, only on Login, witch gets a bit confusing when people come to site for the first time, and looking to register, they can’t just press button to register using facebook logins.. only way to register is to press “login with facebook” witch is confusing if you not registered. I think you guys need to sort this out, because that doesnt work..

      I’m actually working on an update so that the Facebook Connect and Twitter Connect buttons will appear on the registration page in the next release.

      The new version (4.7) adds a Facebook connect button to the registration page.

    I just purchased this module and installed it however its still saying a update is available, surely i updated the latest version when purchasing minutes before??

    also the login with facebook only shows up on login dropdown not on registration page or registration drop down! defo needs to be implemented.

      1. The version number update alert glitch can be fixed by uninstalling then re-installing the module. You can do this quickly from the Admin module management pages, without losing any of your module settings. Pligg’s module version check function only updates module numbers when being installed, so whenever you upload a newer version you need to re-install it to get the correct number.
      2. Are you using the latest version of this module available, and Pligg CMS 2.0.0 final which was released just a couple days ago? Even if you are on an earlier (rc1, rc2) Pligg 2 version, you should probably still see the Facebook login button on the register page unless you are currently logged in to a Facebook connected account.
      3. Installation instructions are included in the module’s readme file. You can access this file by either directly opening it from /modules/fb/fb_readme.htm, or you can view it by clicking on the “Facebook Module” title on the module management pages (/admin/admin_modules.php?action=readme&module=fb).

    i installed and followed the instruction now I get a error: Invalid or no certificate authority found, using bundled information.

    The admin Panel is not working only see the error.

    Advice please.

      That’s a common (and ignorable) error message that you will find in the error log, but it shouldn’t be preventing you from accessing the admin panel. Please send me a support request via and I’ll look into whatever your issue is:

    I has purchased the Facebook module 4.6 on Aug 14, 2013. I can not update the latest version 4.7. There is only version 4.6 in the download section.

    • Pligg LLC

      – October 1, 2013:

      Sorry about that. That was a problem on our end. For some reason we didn’t have the latest version attached to the product. I’ve updated it so that version 4.7 of the Facebook module can be downloaded.

    I have a proplem with the plugin. I someone is creating a account with facebook the email field is not filled in the database so no one else can register with facebook afterwards because they all have the same email then (null). Please provide support.

    • Pligg LLC

      – December 4, 2013:

      Email addresses should be imported into the database from Facebook during registration. If you send us a support request via our contact page ( we’ll help you out. We will probably need to ask you for your FTP and Pligg login details so that we can log in to your site and troubleshoot the issue on your own server.

    I bought an older version of this module for pligg 1.2, but now I use pligg 2.0. I must buy a new version of the module?

    I payed for this module and it is still not available to download (pending). I tried to contact 5 times by “contact” page but nobody responded. I believe that this are only technical issues and should be quickly solved. I’m already delayed more than 1 week because of this lack of response and any help from PLIGG support

      I had to manually approve your order. For some reason it didn’t recognize that you had made the payment. I’m sorry for the delay. Our mail servers have been having issues this week, which I’m about to look into now.
