Unlink Account?

Is it possible to unlink a Facebook account from a specific WP/BP User? If so, how?

    Hello :slight_smile:

    If a user has not registered with Facebook they can map their account by using the link provided in their Profile page . See pic

    You'll need to make sure you have "Allow Facebook identity renewal" checked in Facebook Connect for this to show.

    To remove the link the user can easily change the email associated with the account or the password via their user profile.

    Both :slight_smile:

    The WP user email is mapped to the same as the Facebook email, if they want to change that they can and the account will not be accessible to the FAcebook app,

    Same goes with the password, if it's changed from the mapped settings then it is unable to synch so it will be disconnected.

    They can also manually edit any profile items at any time via their user profile since it is mapped to the WP Database.

    I unlinked an account by changing the email associated with the WordPress/BP profile. But, the profile pic from FB is still showing up in the WP Admin Bar. When I try to upload a new avatar, it is not being accepted and I am getting an error.
