Staff Note: Moved to Graveyard - this will never work now that the old style facebook authentication is no longer available.


Facebook Connect
This add-on allows your guests and existing users to login with their Facebook account through Facebook Connect.

There is NO NEED to upgrade or reinstall if you already installed this mod for 3.7

Upgrade to 2.0.6 so that users with the new super long IDs will be able to login.


This mod conflicts with PhotoPost vBGallery!

Quick fix:
Disable the following PhotoPost vBGallery plugins:
  • Userinfo Merge
  • Integrate Postbit Showthread

Benefits of Facebook Connect
  • Users can simply login with their Facebook account without going through the registration process.
  • Increase user interaction and your traffic through Facebook notifications and news-feeds!
Features
Facebook users will be able to receive Facebook notifications when:
  • There is a reply to their thread or a thread that they're subscribing to
  • They receive a new PM
News-Feed will be published on to the user's wall when the user:
  • Logs in for the first time
  • Replies to a thread
  • Creates a new thread
Fetch user data from Facebook
Fetch data like name, location, profile picture and use it on your forums! (NOTE: Some data may not be available for some users)

Automatically befriend user's friends
If any of the user's friends are also registered on the forum, they will automatically be friends!

Professional Install/Upgrade/Support Services
Want this mod professionally installed? It's guaranteed to work on your forum! Download the archive and see INSTALL.html/UPGRADE.html for more details!

Troubleshooting
Server Requirements:
PHP 5

If you get an error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Means that there is something wrong with your callback URL. Your callback URL must be where xd_receiver.htm is; so when you enter [callbackurl]/xd_receiver.htm into your browser you should see a blank page (not a 404 page not found error or anything else).

If you get a continues https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/ this means there is a javascript error. Make sure you've done all the template edits correctly (especially footer & navbar). Clear your cache and reload the page.

If nothing happens when you click the Facebook Connect button make sure your callback url domain is the same as you forum domain (the one set in your forum settings) - more specifically make sure that there is a www (or isn't) in both domains.


Many more features may be implemented in the future so keep checking for updates.

I'm already using the 3.7 version on 3.8. Is there any changes in this version or should I mark installed here and leave things as they are.

Very, very nice. Thank you.

Installed.

How would this work for current members that are facebook users? Do they get moved to the FB group? Or can they remain in their current group?

stonner 25 Jan 2009 21:12

Installed and it's working!

How can I translate the News-Feed-Templates? Thank you!

This hack is amazing! I'm about to install it, but I do have one question... how does it work in regards to forum permissions?

Ie. If I am connected to FB via this hack and I post in a staff topic, its not going to publish the name/link of that topic in the news feed on FB, is it?

If your whole forum is set to private (you have to register to view it, and some other areas are set by postcount minimum) then does this mean that topics will still be published? As obviously FB cannot tell which of its users' friends have the same access to read those topics iykwim.

Thanks in advance, waiting for confirmation so I can get this up and going :)

It tries to. You have to tell it "no" or I think it would.

I turned off the publish stories function because the yes or no function was annoying and I had to tell it "no" on some so I couldn't just set it to "always do this"...
