Facebook accounts merged with old username

Website Comments by FLASHPRO

I made some tweaks to the Facebook registration and sign up process. Before now, using the Facebook link would create a brand new account on BeerPal that used your real name as the username. Not good! Now the Facebook link tries to look for your email. As long as they're the same, it'll sync your Facebook provider ID with your old account and log you in seamlessly! Pretty cool! If a Facebook account email isn't found on BeerPal, a new BeerPal account is creating and the username is set to a generic one starting with "Drinker" instead of using the person's real name. I'll have to add a function that lets them customize their username if they want.
