  2. Hi there
    I am using this plugin and it will working but i create api for mobile application in which table i can insert facebook id and secret key.

  3. Very nice Extension. On Chrome this Extension works fine but doesn’t seem to work on Safari. It shows social authentication page i.e. Facebook or Google or any other. But after giving authorization , it redirects to customer login page (with no login). Isn’t it compatible to Safari Browser (Windows / Mac)? Or what can be the solution for this? I need it badly.

  4. Please can somebody help me?
    after the facebook login authorization i still have this url “”
    and its not login in, its bringing me back to the login page
    Please what can do to solve this?

    1. Hello Bamise,

      For a quick fix you may navigate to app/code/community/Inchoo/SocialConnect/controllers/FacebookController.php

      Comment the following lines in _connectCallback() method

      if(!$state || $state != Mage::getSingleton(‘core/session’)->getFacebookCsrf()) {

      You may also try the same for Google and Twitter login.

  5. Can we call below code twice in a single page?

  6. Facebook login works only for the account created few years back.This is not working for new accounts.

  7. Hi,
    I have installed this extension but after facebook login i get this error “Sorry, could not retrieve your Facebook first name. Please try again.” please help.

    1. You are getting the error because your app is of a later version (> ver 2.3)
      You need to go to app/code/community/Inchoo/SocialConnect/controllers/FacebookController.php.
      There go to line 122, and change $userInfo = $client->api(‘/me’); to $userInfo = $client->api(‘/me?fields=id,name,first_name,email,last_name’);

  8. Hello,

    Thank you for such a good extension. I have successfully implemented this and working perfectly. But I have question that after logging with Facebook, I am redirecting to My account page with URL

    Why is this #_=_ gets append to URL? How can I remove this. Please respond me as early as possible.

    Thanks in advance,
    Dolly Patel.

    1. Please its redirecting me back to my website login and i get this url “”

  9. I implement this extension on fresh magento 1.9.1 on my local, and got an error after redirect from facebook at this URL:

    Error is:
    Fatal error: Call to a member function getBackend() on a non-object in C:\xampp\htdocs\magentosocial\app\code\core\Mage\Eav\Model\Entity\Abstract.php on line 816
    Please suggest me why this error?

  10. HI, Your extension works fine when I try it on localhost , but when I tried on live for facebook, its not working as expected, after clicking on fb login button all the data are successfully fetched from facebook, and also get stored at my location, but then to live site redirects me to login page and shows success message. It’s like buyer got registered then also not able to log in.Please help me out.

  11. Hi,

    we are receiving this notification from Facebook:

    “***** has been making recent API calls to Graph API v2.0, which will reach the end of the 2-year deprecation window on Monday, August 8, 2016. Please migrate all calls to v2.1 or higher in order to avoid potential broken experiences. We recommend using our new Graph API Upgrade Tool to see which of your calls are affected by this change as well as any replacement calls in newer versions. You can also use our changelog to see the full list of changes.”

    When I look at the Inchoo_SocialConnect_Model_Facebook_Oauth2_Client – class I noticed that Oauth Urls dont have API version defined at url. And according to Facebook ( if we do not define version at request url :

    “We refer to this as an unversioned call. An unversioned call will default to the oldest available version of the API”

  12. Is it also possible to put Facebook login into the top links (header), aside from its layout on the customer login page? Thanks in advance

  16. I’m on Magento and have a problem with Google.

    Error: invalid_client
    The OAuth client was not found.

    I’ve got the domain verified, Google Plus API Enabled, the URI’s look good, keys are in place. This is version 0.3.7 of Social Connect.

    Facebook is not problem, but no joy on Google.

    Does anyone know if something has changed recently?


    1. Total and complete error on my part. Just pasted the key in improperly. Had a space at the beginning of the key and it put “+” into the code. (thought it was weird because it worked a couple of months ago on

      Facebook and Google both work on CE absolutely.

      Love this extension!

  17. I am using in Magento version .I placed this code also <input type="hidden" name="form_key" value="” />.But i am getting same error like
    I am getting error: Sorry, could not retrieve your Facebook first name. Please try again .How resolve this issue.

    1. Since Facebook Api version 2.4, fields must be explicity requested in order to have a better performance. To fix this in Magento, just go to FacebookController.php and in line 122, change from:

      $userInfo = $client->api('/me');


      $userInfo = $client->api('/me?fields=id,name,first_name,email,last_name');
  18. I am getting error: Sorry, could not retrieve your Facebook first name. Please try again in Magento

    1. If the Api version of your created app is higher than 2.3, you will have that problem. Since Facebook Api version 2.4, fields must be explicity requested in order to have a better performance. To fix this in Magento, just go to FacebookController.php and in line 122, change from:

      $userInfo = $client->api('/me');


      $userInfo = $client->api('/me?fields=id,name,first_name,email,last_name');
    1. I am facing the same issue while running application in local. Did you get a solution?

  19. Hi,

    I recently upgraded to 0.3.7 and found that Facebook social login is problematic.
    On first try it comes back to the login page with a line at the top saying:
    Your Facebook account is now connected to your new user account at our store. Now you can login using our Facebook Login button.

    On second try I am redirected to the account dashboard but there is no contact details, where as I can see that details have been populated in the database. If I click on any of the links I can see that I am not actually logged in because there is no logout link.

    On third try, I am redirected to a error page having the contents below:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function getId() on a non-object in /var/www/html/app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Quote.php on line 456

    Facebook Connect is working great when already logged in either manually or with twitter or google login. Kindly help.

  22. Hello,

    Great extension, I am using the latest version 0.3.7. Just one problem – once I log in successfully via Facebook and go to My Account in my Magento store, there’s a “Facebook Connect” button linking to http://……/socialconnect/account/facebook/. Clicking it leads to an error, and the system.log shows the following:

    2016-01-20T06:04:43+00:00 ERR (3): Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 0 of 263 bytes in /app/code/community/Inchoo/SocialConnect/Model/Facebook/Info/User.php on line 69

    What am I doing wrong? Please advise.

    Thank you for your expertise.

    Best regards,

                <input type="hidden" name="error_url" value="getErrorUrl() ?>" />
