    When members login using Facebook, how do they go about creating unique credentials that can be used devoid of Facebook. Our site has an app, so the need XF credentials to login, since Facebook isn't an option on the app.

    Once they have logged in (registered) via Facebook, they have a user record in the database, the same as any other member.

    They can log in using the user name or email address and password, like any other member.

    They don't have a password initially though - they can request that one be generated and emailed to them (in the account section), or this will automatically be done if they disassociate their FB account.

    Ah yes, good point, forgot about that as it's been so long since I messed around with the FB login stuff.
