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.

I think they can set a password themselves later if they want. I guess the only issue with adding a password option is it slows registration, perhaps have it as an optional field?

Mine didn't either- until I realized I missed a template edit. Double check all your edits.

Setting them one by one would not be possible. I was asking because I have my Wordpress installation bridged to vBulletin and making the native login possible would be quite essential.

This could be solved by letting the users choose a password when registering through FB.

Is this technically possible? If it is, how much work would it require?


(Amazing support btw, and blazing speed developing. Many thanks. Installed and donated. I urge everyone to do the same )

Indeed, fantastic speed and support. I'm planning to donate in a day or two once I figure out why it only pops up on some pages under some browsers.

Thanks mate!
ODd, works for me under FireFox but not under Opera (just goes straight to fblogin.php)

First, thanks for your support and the donation!

Letting the users to choose a password when registering is possible, but then it feels more like a registration than a login. I could include an option in the CP to enable & disable password request.
