I have a portal I am trying to use facebook authentication on.   I had the site setup for "EMail as Username" but noticed the facebook accounts had the beginning of the email name before the @ sign.   This would work out great if I had everyone using a username, so I switched to username as username instead of email in site settings.  Now the usernames are Facebook-234243587345962 which who is going to remember this and the emails used for username s before now the users will see enter "Username" instead of "Email" like when they registered.

I am just trying to get some consistency using the authentication systems. 

So when Use Email as Username is checked use the email as the username, and when its unchecked use the beginning of the email or a close auto generated username if taken.  I wish the login system would just allow you to use either your email or username if "use unique email" is set in web config.  That way people can use both ways to remember to log in.  But I know that is asking a lot when I am dealing with this issue still.

Am I the only one that notices this or maybe I have a setting off...

The way I see it is the facebook authentication system while site settings is set to "Use email as Username"  would work for ok if the way its setup was switched and then the actual email account address entered when this setting is on.

End result would be a new facebook user would get a username if unchecked and a email for a username if checked, and never see this FACEBOOK-1234958729456 as a username in the database.  Looks like a bot...

Thank you

Facebook Authentication issue simplified:

My email is [email protected]

If Admin>Site Settings>Advanced "Use Email Address as Username:" is checked on results are:

username= jack5

If Admin>Site Settings>Advanced "Use Email Address as Username:" is NOT checked on results are:

username=Facebook-213456546824

Neither of these is correct. There should be an email address in the username field if checked on and the results of if its checked on is great for the result if NOT checked on but not for uncheck.

The results for unchecked with that facebook and number...

Results should be:

If Admin>Site Settings>Advanced "Use Email Address as Username:" is checked on results are:
username= [email protected]

If Admin>Site Settings>Advanced "Use Email Address as Username:" is NOT checked on results are:

username=jack5 OR jack51 if that name is taken.

And one last upgrade on the login system is to where a user enters a Username OR Email Address at login and BOTH work.

Thank you. I will submit to Gemini when I have time just looking for thoughts here before I do or if its already a known issue it has been ages since it has been fixed, ever since it has been out.
