    Thanks for addressing so many issues.

    ps: https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=auth_googleoauth2 is very similar (twitter support seems to be the difference). It seems technically feasible that these are merged, so please have a look and consider.

    Just remove the image links of twitter, google, linkedin. That would stop the usage of these 3. You are only going to link it to facebook, so the users will have links to use only that

    first of all nice plugin and it works flawlessly with me on version 2.6 how ever there are some issues for which guidance is needed ..

    1. On fb login - as I am just using fb login its only capturing email and name from response code ... is there any way at least country can captured too.. with possible extension for picture in future ...

    2. If author can only explain the login flow .. I guess many good things can be added to plugin .. as I am still confuse when it takes from fbreponse file to auth file ... and what happens after that sad

    but in general good work !!!

    suhail shah - We arent taking country as fb blocks it for many users owing to their privacy settings. Will include them if more people ask for it. We will add image retrieval in the future versions. Thanks for your suggestions and please share more of them smile.

    Good plugin!

    I'm now using another authentication (linkedin) plugin. This plugin adds the Linkedin picture. Could this be added in your plugin?

    Best regards

    The plugin is great and works as per description. I wanted to know is there any way to stop self registration throught this plugin. (may be some code modifications) I will like to allow access to only those users who have been added by admin.

    I'm using your plugin just whith google authentication, but when updating Moodle to 2.9 version it crashed.
    The users got only a white screen when trying to login. Activating debug mode gave some tips.

    In the script moodle/auth/elcentra/googleresponse.php line 26: "require_once '../../lib/pluginlib.php';". (A kind of file not found error)
    Since https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-46122 , that file is not needed anymore. So deleting the line is OK.

    Next error is class "plugin_manager" is not defined (line 47): "$pluginManager = plugin_manager::instance();"

    A quick view to moodle/lib/classes/pluginmanager.php shows that the new name for the class is "core_plugin_manager", so udpadtin the line 47 of moodle/auth/elcentra/googleresponse.php whit this content: "$pluginManager = core_plugin_manager::instance();" will resolve the issue.

    I have set up the plugin correctly (I believe), with app ID, secret, redirect URI, but after I press the facebook login button and I authorize the app, I get a HTTP ERROR 500. I am using moodle 3.2+.

    Is this plugin still supported? I have a problem with the Facebook component. It only gives an "unexpected error"

    Is it possible to use the Google login and have it fixed so that only of a certain domain - identifiable within their email address - can access the site? For example, dave.smith@someschoool.here.co.uk? i.e. I would only want users with the email addresses @someschoool.here.co.uk to be able to access the moodle site. Thanks.
