JomSocial Advantages

JomSocial has the convenience of using the standard Joomla user table so nearly any login module you choose will work. You can also link to the standard Joomla "forgot password" and "forgot username" pages. This improves compatibility greatly when using extensions like RokBridge with phpBB3. If you are using both systems in tandem, please consider editing phpBB3 registraton links as this will ensure that your user's login info stays synced (only available to phpBB3 club members). The current JomSocial phpBB3 plugin is designed around RokBridge due to it's non-invasive code structure and ease of installation.

If a user registers through Joomla's registration, this user will be registered with JomSocial and have access to all the user applications. This is also true for any user added by the Administrator of the site. JomSocial does have a customized registration that allows for custom profile fields to be added and then set as optional or mandatory. Registration links can easily be redirected to make sure all new users take advantage of the customized registration process. There is also an included "Hello Me" module with a login form and links as well as displayed user information and avatar once logged in.

An additional option is "Facebook Connect" which is part of the core download of JomSocial. If you are planning on using this feature, please read: Facebook Connect Documentation. Please also note that you should not sync a "Super Administrator" user with a Facebook account. This can cause you to lose login abilities.
Facebook Connect in JomSocial allows users who already have a Facebook account to seamlessly connect their Facebook account and information with your site with a single sign on process which does not require the user to remember multiple account information.
