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 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.

Whenever I click on news feed I see a blank screen. Basically I uploaded the XML and then couldn't enter the template feeds because the screen shows blank. Anyone have this issue?

BTW, i'm using PHP 4.

This is an awesome mod! Support was fantastic as well. It looks like a few of us are struggling with the news feed templates. I get what it is, I just don't seem to successfully be able to post images and links so they look right and make sense. I just want one image and one line of text for each thing, and when I modify the short story I can't delete it so it only shows one image. If someone can post a step-through I would greatly appreciate it! This mod rocks!

Existing Registered Users and Data Mapping

Great Mod!

Is there anyway for existing board users to connect via Facebook without the need to create a new vbulletin account, i.e. integrate their existing account?

Also, if changes have been made to the data mapping, is there a function to repopulate the account info from Facebook into vbulletin?

This might be a bug.

When a user is on a corporate network they get popups from their firewall/proxy sayin the site is blocked. the forum loads in the background so it doesn't stop them from using the forum but as you can imagine, clicking a popup closed every time the page loads is not going to make ppl happy.

unfortunately, many forums main user base is people sitting at working not wanting to work so they post the day away.

anyway we can only do facebook checking if the user is in the facebook group or something? im not sure how to combat this because i didn't start digging through the code yet.

thanks in advance!!!

I'm sure this is a very basic and dumb question but I'm a newbie and can't find the answer anywhere (I even googled it). What files exactly do you upload (upload folder?) and Where exactly on the directory do you upload the files to? In the main vbulletin directly? Includes? Install?

Thanks in advance.

Can this be made into a standalone import info tool from facebook?

ie. click here to import your info from facebook.

then it copies your profile pic, checks for friends, copies common info...
