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.

You have entered an invalid username or password. Please press the back button, enter the correct details and try again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click click
Any idea on that? After choose a nickname and go to the next process it shows that message.

I'd give it a go if:

1. There was a way for an existing user to associate their Facebook credentials with their forum account.

2. There was a way for a Facebook user to login first with their Facebook credentials but also be able to login using a normal vb user/pass should they choose to do so in the future.

For the first one, you should be able to simply merge the users.

Easier said than done.. I have over 7,000 registered users. It'd be a nightmare to handle that manually.

I question whether *all* of my users would want their accounts merged. Though it may be a pain, I for one think this is still a very powerful tool for getting new members.

The Facebook Connect cross-domain receiver URL http://www.loveukmusic.com/forum/xd_...%220.987%22%7D must have the application's callback URL http://www.loveukmusic.co.uk/forum as a prefix. You can configure the callback URL in the application's settings.

sawsomeone else had a problem but what am i doing wrong?

What I did was create php files to redirects to the right directory or doamin for example the fblogin.php I creatred a fblogin.php file in the root directory where my CMPS in since its in a different domain and within this I added

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=http://forums.mydomain.com/fblogin.php" />

same for all the needed links in my CMPS.
