Create Login With Facebook

Now we will use our Facebook App to create Login With Facebook to our website, we need 6 PHP files:

  1. index.php
  2. config.php
  3. login.php
  4. callback.php
  5. success.php
  6. logout.php

Create new PHP file “index.php” and enter this code inside it:

<?php

    // Script By Qassim Hassan, wp-time.com

    session_start();

    if( isset($_SESSION['success']) ){ // if user is logged in
        ?>
            <h3>Welcome <?php echo $_SESSION["first_name"]; ?> <?php echo $_SESSION["last_name"]; ?> !</h3>
            <p><img src="<?php echo $_SESSION['picture']; ?>"></p>
            <p>Your Email is: <?php echo $_SESSION["email"]; ?></p>
            <p><a href="logout.php">Logout</a></p>
        <?php
    }

    else{ // if user is not logged in
        echo '<a href="login.php">Login With Facebook</a>';
    }

?>

Now create new PHP file “config.php” and enter this code inside it:

<?php

    // Script By Qassim Hassan, wp-time.com

    // go to https://developers.facebook.com and create a new app

    $app_id = "xxxxxx"; // enter your app id

    $app_secret = "xxxxxx"; // enter your app secret

    $redirect_uri = "http://localhost/login-with-facebook/callback.php"; // enter your redirect url (Site URL from app settings)

    $scope = "public_profile"; // we need scope of public_profile, but you can change it for another result, check list of scopes: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/facebook-login/permissions

?>

Now create new PHP file “login.php” and enter this code inside it:

<?php

    session_start();

    // Script By Qassim Hassan, wp-time.com

    if( isset($_SESSION['success']) ){ // check if user is logged in
        header("location: index.php"); // redirect user to index page
        return false;
    }

    include 'config.php'; // include app info

    $_SESSION['login'] = 1;

    header("location: https://www.facebook.com/dialog/oauth?client_id=$app_id&redirect_uri=$redirect_uri&scope=$scope"); // redirect user to oauth page

?>

Now create new PHP file “callback.php” and enter this code inside it:

<?php

    session_start();

    // Script By Qassim Hassan, wp-time.com

    if( isset($_SESSION['success']) or !isset($_SESSION['login']) ){ // check if user is logged in
        header("location: index.php"); // redirect user to index page
        return false;
    }

    include 'config.php'; // include app info

    $code = str_replace("#_=_", "", $_GET['code']); // CODE from code parameter: http://localhost/login-with-facebook/callback.php?code=XXXXXX

    $api = "https://graph.facebook.com/v2.0/oauth/access_token?client_id=$app_id&redirect_uri=$redirect_uri&client_secret=$app_secret&code=$code";

    $get_content = file_get_contents($api); // get result

    $explode = explode("&", $get_content); // convert result to array

    $str_replace = str_replace("access_token=", "", $explode[0]); // user access

    $_SESSION['access_token'] = $str_replace; // save user access token in session

    header("location: success.php"); // redirect user to success page

?>

Now create new PHP file “success.php” and enter this code inside it:

<?php

    session_start();

    // Script By Qassim Hassan, wp-time.com
    include 'config.php';

    $access_token = $_SESSION['access_token']; // user access token

    if( isset($_SESSION['success']) or !isset($_SESSION['access_token']) ){ // check if user is logged in
        header("location: index.php"); // redirect user to index page
        return false;
    }

    /* Get User Picture */

    $width = 160; // picture width, change it if you want

    $height = 160; // picture height, change it if you want

    $get_picture = "https://graph.facebook.com/me/picture?redirect=0&width=$width&height=$height&access_token=$access_token";

    $content_picture = file_get_contents($get_picture);

    $picture_json = json_decode($content_picture, true);

    $user_picture = $picture_json["data"]["url"]; // user picture link

    /* Get User Info */

    $get_info = "https://graph.facebook.com/me/?access_token=$access_token";

    $content_info = file_get_contents($get_info);

    $info_json = json_decode($content_info, true);

    $_SESSION["first_name"] = $info_json['first_name']; // save user first name in session

    $_SESSION["last_name"] = $info_json['last_name']; // save user last name in session

    $_SESSION["email"] = $info_json['email']; // save user email in session

    $_SESSION["picture"] = $user_picture; // save user picture link in session

    $_SESSION['success'] = 1;

    header("location: index.php"); // finally, redirect user to index page

?>

Finally, create new PHP file “logout.php” and enter this code inside it:

<?php

    session_start();

    /* Script By Qassim Hassan, wp-time.com */

    // if user is logged in, destroy all facebook sessions
    if( isset($_SESSION['success']) or isset($_SESSION['access_token']) or isset($_SESSION['login']) ){
        unset( $_SESSION['success'] ); // destroy
        unset( $_SESSION['access_token'] ); // destroy
        unset( $_SESSION['login'] ); // destroy
        header("location: index.php"); // redirect user to index page
    }

    else{ // if user is not logged in
        header("location: index.php"); // redirect user to index page
    }

?>

Done.
