How to Use the Facebook Connect Module in Dolphin 7

In today’s article, I will show you how to allow your members to login using their Facebook username and password. First, we need to install the “Facebook Connect” module.  A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7 base modules can be found here.

Once we have the module installed, we can access it by clicking “Facebook Connect” under the “Modules” heading on the left side menu.
