if you want to use the login if they are already logged into facebook you have to have the php sdk installed and you run

$facebook_user = $facebook->getUser();

when the user logs in to facebook you can get info like email
address and name you can set up a script to verify this info in your current database and allow him to login or basically check to see if he exisits then log him in as that user or setup another table and store the fbuser name and check for that to try to integrate the

Hi,

What he was referring you was these codes.

<?php

define('YOUR_APP_ID', 'YOUR APP ID');

//uses the PHP SDK.  Download from https://github.com/facebook/php-sdk
require 'facebook.php';

$facebook = new Facebook(array(
  'appId'  => YOUR_APP_ID,
  'secret' => 'YOUR APP SECRET',
));

$userId = $facebook->getUser();

?>

<html>
  <body>
    <?php if ($userId) { 
      $userInfo = $facebook->api('/' + $userId); ?>
      Welcome <?= $userInfo['name'] ?>
    <?php } else { ?>
    <div id="fb-root"></div>
    <fb:login-button></fb:login-button>
    <?php } ?>
    <script>
      window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
        FB.init({
          appId      : '<?= YOUR_APP_ID ?>',
          status     : true, 
          cookie     : true,
          xfbml      : true,
          oauth      : true,
        });

        FB.Event.subscribe('auth.login', function(response) {
          window.location.reload();
        });
      };

      (function(d){
         var js, id = 'facebook-jssdk'; if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;}
         js = d.createElement('script'); js.id = id; js.async = true;
         js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js";
         d.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(js);
       }(document));
    </script>
  </body>
</html>

First, you need to register your app ID in facebook site, and then download this file here https://github.com/facebook/php-sdk.

Second, if you have not program anything, maybe this is the right time to practice on something a lot smaller. Pretty soon, you maybe wanting to do it with twitter oauth, where the process will be more tedious than facebook.

Third, just try to write something so that people can guide you, but they will not write the codes for you. However, if you really don't know where to start, try reading and downloading the script from this site http://thinkdiff.net/facebook/php-sdk-3-0-graph-api-base-facebook-connect-tutorial/ .

Fourth, try to understand how the script works. As you become familiar with the script, your confidence will also grow and it is time to experiment integrating it to your site's database.

Good luck and happy coding... :)
