We are porting our big board from vb to Xenforo. The vB board never had facebook registration or login. Now I want to enable that once everything is moved over to Xenforo. Excuse the dumb questions, I am still trying to get all my ducks in a row before we actually do this move.

1) What is the best way to deal with existing members who might re-register with facebook and have multiple accounts (which I don't want)?

2) Is there a way for a user to edit their exiting registration so they can login with facebook AND/OR via and old school username & password method?

3) Is there a way for people to register with facebook and change their username to something other than their real name?

Thanks,

You would just have to merge them.

2) Is there a way for a user to edit their exiting registration so they can login with facebook AND/OR via and old school username & password method?
Yes, existing members can associate/link their accounts, rather than having to re-register.

3) Is there a way for people to register with facebook and change their username to something other than their real name?
Yes, the name can be changed prior to completing the registration.
