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.

They do not have a password in the database. Try signing up with facebook and then try logging in with username and same password. it doesn't work.

As normal, the email addresses that Facebook uses are proxy emails which when mail is sent to them forwards the email to the address that is on their Facebook account

With a few hacks it can be sorted. I have it so that on Edit Your Details page the "Edit Email and password" button shows even for Facebook users.

When they click this I have it so they can view their Facebook Proxy Email address and change their password. They can then copy the Facebook Proxy Email, logout and then go through the lost password procedure to get a new password emailed to them.

Once they have this new password they can login via either method and can then set a password they can remember. Works perfectly

Not true. I've tried sending an email to these users and receive a bounce back in return.

Actually, that IS true. These emails won't just "get to the user", though, you have to comply with the standards set forth by facebook.

As far as sending mail directly to the proxy mail, it isn't going to work right. You can NOT mail these users directly, nor, frankly, should you mail users from your forum in a "mass mail" format!

I have boards that have emailed thousands of users with no issues at all, and if you allow them to log in to your site via there facebook accounts why should you not be able to send them emails?

It seems this mod is more of a hassle than it is worth, why would you want users on your board that you can not control, I would rather them make an actual account, and if they do not want to do that then they are not wanting to view my site anyways.

Can't be done
This doesn't "register" users for your forum in the standard way. You need to use something like this mod to force users to accept rules once registered
