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 is a great mod, but when I think about it, do you think that many people will put their info in there even though many people phish accounts? They may decide to be cautious.

Their just logging into FaceBook just like they would ordinarily. This just bridges it with your forum.

the question is whats common between Lang Hebrew2 and footer?
Jedi, i thought about something.. where is another place besides footer that i can place it to work ?
Did you try moving the code someplace else in your footer?

I have been asked by a lot of my members to do a feature where they can invite their facebook friends,
how easy is this if we use fb connect?
Does anyone know how to do this?

I don't think there's anything he can do because it's down to how Facebook works.

You're usually able to easily upgrade to PHP5 through cPanel (or whatever you use for your server).

That's all I did to solve the problem (as I said before).

What I did was just set up a Facebook group for your site and invite people to that group.

I created a file called fb_invite.php. You can see it in action here: http://cellphoneforums.net/fb_invite.php (note that it is uploaded to my forum root)

I haven't tested this fully yet. Make sure under "canvas" on your facebook setting you have it set to FBML. I haven't gotten around getting the canvas page to display correctly either, but that shouldn't matter since you are redirecting the user to your forum home.

You could add a conditional to your pages that say 'if facebook user, display 'invite friends'.

Great little addition. I want to add this on too, but when I attempt to skip the step (not invite anyone), it just flashes and goes back to the screen (does not allow me to skip).

I tried both socialmeet and http://cellphoneforums.net/fb_invite.php - same result.

I just modified it to redirect to forum home on skip. I think it will still invite properly. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1072

interesting... suddenly, it has stopped sending updates to my Facebook account.

The settings are set to 'prompt me before posting' but when I post on my forum, I am not being prompted...

not sure if this is related to the 2.0.3 update or not.

Hi,

I just added this and I am having trouble understanding some things:

I have read and saw that you have to merge new users with existing to merge account, that part I get.

But lets say I create a new member or login with my facebook account that is not connected to my forum yet and then I do the bridge.

I have done this and I get no code errors BUT when I make a new post and such I don't see this feature working like in the screenshot..

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

I mean everything works, like I said no code errors or log in errors but seems features are missing for me unless I missed something, I read the install.html a bunch of time,.

Also has there been any other work around to the forum full of people and then them wanting to connect their accounts or is the "merge user" still the best option?

Thanks in advance for your support and feedback, here is a screenshot of the feature I dont see
