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 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.

This should fix the problem of login popup not working on all pages (vBAdvanced pages)
This didn't work for me... anyone else..

It took me a while to figure out TMS, but after I did.... it saves a ton of time for testing and updating VB when its template edit time.

It's worth it's weight in gold!

try this: go to your facebook application settings, select the connect tab (category) and set the Base Domain setting to bleachboard.com

also upload the xd_receiver.htm to the main directory so that bleachboard.com/xd_receiver.htm would be accessible

This would be most totally awesome. Setting the profile pic's thumbnail as the avatar of the newly created user would be seriously good.

I'm also very glad to hear the passwording option is possible. I understand why it could sometimes be redundant, but at times it would be quite important. (For example in a vb + wordpress CMS bridge with lots of predicted users. It would also serve as a backup login possibility in case something happens either at users or FB's end)

Thanks so much for your work, much appreciated

What's your forum URL? I wouldn't mind trying to login to see if I have any better luck.
Thanks TomJames. URL = www.sirenssociety.com

If you can do the profile/avatar import that would be great... cuz right now... new members are not required to pick a avatar and that sorta sux... but the facebook import will make sure that something is set...

Hmm... can a member of a forum automatically become a member of a group? Or a better way to ask the question... how do i get my members as my friend on facebook or part of my group? Can this be automated once they join...
