Upgrading to Drupal8 – Episode 4 “Fuck it, Hello WordPress!”

Website , Drupal


So, I'm trying to figure out if this darned Drupal Facebook Module will allow me to connect my main login information with Facebook. If this works then this will appear on Facebook.

If this doesn't work then I am going to sulk and write bum on the windows.

The documentation says:

With Drupal for Facebook, you can harness all the power of Drupal in you Facebook App. If you already have content in Drupal, you can expose it on Facebook.

The Drupal for Facebook philosophy is that the functionality already built into Drupal should be used to create Facebook Applications. Where possible, we use Drupal's user management, permission schemes, blocks, views, etc. to implement the Facebook App. Experienced Drupal users will find it very straightforward to build a Facebook App. While Facebook developers new to Drupal may want to spend some time on learning best practices.
