    So it seems like facebook wont scrape information from my posts properly if I dont enable the facebook integration. However when I do enable that, I also present my users with facebook login, which I dont want to.

    Is it possible to have Facebook integration enabled in settings? But not the facebook login posibility?

    Basically just need it for facebook to scrape proper info.

    You can enable the ability to like/recommend posts without allowing log in via FB.

    The default options are set like that out of the box.

    Yes I know. Which gives me facebook like and share ++ on the site etc.

    But to get facebook scrape to work properly, I have to add the appid and key under facebook integration in settings.
    When I do that, I also enable users to login to the forum with facebook. Which is really what I want to avoid.

    So question is, can I have appid + secret key in settings but not have facebook login to the forum?

    Not without modifying the code, or at least the templates to remove the links.
