    Contact form requiring sender to be logged in to facebook.

    Hi everyone. Thanks for clicking and reading. I do apologise in advance if this is a very basic question, but I've looked everywhere and I can't seem to find the solution.

    Is there such a thing as a website contact form that can only be used if the sender is currently logged into their facebook account? I know they can contact me via my facebook page, but I'd like them to do that through my actual website so that when they send I can see which facebook profile the message was sent from.

    Thanks

    Hi GroundControl,

    It's certainly possible - see

    I've never done it before so hopefully someone else here on the forum has done it before and can give better guidance!

    There are PHP scripts that allow you to let people log into YOUR website using their FaceBook or Google Account login, but to know if they are logged into FaceBook? I don't think it's possible. That would be a real big privacy issue. That would mean anyone could see if you were logged into facebook whether they were even using facebook or not, and it wouldn't matter if you were friends with them or not. That would be creepy.

    And the PHP scripting that allows people to log into your website ... it only provides an authentication. It has nothing to do really with actual FaceBook or Google Account. You only know the login was successful and real.
