Autofill registration fields with data gathered via OAuth app

Post by Dragosvr92 »

Currently, the OAuth apps only works if you already have an account and you confirm it on a manual login once.

Usually, the apps ive seen automatically check if in your fb account you uses the same email as your site account does, and logs you in.
I think this should be implemented, and incase the emails there are not a match, to prompt you to login manually, as we do now.

But if you hit the Fb OAuth button and dont have an account, on the registration page you should have the info pulled out of your account to fill the required registration fields. Like the fb username, email, Name, avatar, Location maybe?
