    Hello,
    What do you risk allowing Facebook login? Anything? Here is one concern I have. Some banned members from my community from many moons ago are very active on Facebook, and would love to login and terrorize the community - I had banned them from the site including blocking their IP back then. How can I safe guard my site from unwanted banned members etc geting on via the Facebook login?

    I don't want to lose this great login feature.

    Thanks,

    If they have a static IP address it will be the same no matter how many accounts they create, whether via Facebook or not.
    Otherwise just ban the new accounts/IP addresses.

    Ok - good, also, is there a spot in the ACP I can just copy and paste all banned IP addresses or should i just do it via .htaccess?

    I saw this, unfortunately it wont let you copy and paste the IP's. my IP's are in this format.

    example: 192.11.234, 193.23.234, 456.44.696

    You can specify a range but I wouldn't advise it as you could ban legitimate visitors.

    Ok- it will have to be added via .htaccess then, no problem.
