    Hm, as you can see, Facebook is not returning the email in the output at all, so there's not much I can do from the plugin standpoint.

    There has to be some combination of settings that will allow the email to be saved...

  • I tried various options to test..this is my observation.

    1. I have used a facebook id to login into this forum, which has read the email id and correct email is is displayed in the profile.
    2. I have used the same facebook id in my own forum, there login is successful, but right email is not displayed (instead it is giving email like ([email protected]).
    3. Obviously there is something wrong in my forum vs this forum, as same facebook id not returning email id for my forum , but it does return here.
    4. Surely i hv to update something in my forum to get the email id.,Any pointer on where to start and proceed to investigate further ?

  • Try to install the latest version of the facebook plugin. I think the email issue is fixed.

  • It has to be something in facebook developer (application) settings

  • Well this is strrange. Instead of installing plugin via web interface, i used command line and version went to 1.1.14 from 1.0.5 and now everything is fine

  • @Veljko-Radovanovic said:


    Yes, the 1.1.4 fixes the issue. Use npm install from CLI to install the latest plugin.

  • Now ive managed to get this error:
