Facebook login on create account page in prestashop

I got the Facebook login module from your website and it works very great. 
My shop is based on prestashop (latest one) and i have one doubt. I would like to place a position inside the login page. Please check the attachment file for what we need to the location. 
Many thanks

PrestaShop expert answer about facebook connect button on "register" page

Firstly I need to explain how the modules in prestashop display own contents.
Modules in prestashop can be attached to theme features called "hooks". Hook is a position in theme template file where the prestashop executes and shows modules.
Each page in prestashop (like product page, category page, authentication page etc.) have own hooks in a specific positions.

Authentication page in PrestaShop 1.6.1.x does not have a hook to execute and display module inside authentication page login form. Because of this by default it is not possible to display modules there - so also 'facebook login' module. But now worries - it is possible with some workarounds.

To display "facebook login" button on authentication page in prestashop 1.6.1.x:
  1. open module configuration page
  2. turn on position "fblogin": https://i.imgur.com/aSRSIlQ.png
  3. save changes
  4. now it is necessary to add tiny shortcode to /themes/your-theme-name/authentication.tpl file
  5. open it and right above the line with code like: {l s='Already registered?'} add this shortcode: {hook h='fblogin'}
  6. go to shop back office preferences > performance section and hit button "clear cache"

after these 6 steps facebook login should appear on authentication page below the "create an account" button and above the "Already registered?" text
