I have received a users request on how to unmangle ones wikiloops account from logging in by facebook this morning.
I am going to share my response here, so it is available to anyone who may have been considering changing from Facebook login to manual login.
This will only be relevant for anyone who used the "Log in with Facebook" option while wikiloops offered that.
Looking at the recent news, you will probably understand why I chose to discontinue offering the option to new users quite a while ago...

Untangling your wikiloops account from Facebook is quite simple,
here is what you will need to do to receive a password to log in to wikiloops manually:

- log out of facebook and wikiloops

- visit wikiloops and click on "Sign in"

- in the opening dialog, click on "Request a new password here"

- on the wikiloops password recovery page, enter the email address you used with your facebook account and submit the form

- you will receive a validation email first, please click on the included verification link

- you will then receive a second email with a new password

- return to wikiloops and log in with your user name & newly created password

- I'd recommend to visit your profile -> edit profile page to change that password to something you can easily remember.

If you plan to continue using facebook, then the automatic log in on wikiloops will continue to work, too.

To remove / review the websites you are entering with Facebook auth, please visit your "Settings" page on Facebook and open the "Apps" segment.
