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.

Mapping Feature Request: Can you please add one for their Facebook profile ID? I use this hack and it would be great to map it to the hacks required custom user profile field.

Great work and thanks!

Where qr_prepare_submit is replaced with fb_qr_prepare_submit

There's some kind of bug in that code Note i'm running 3.7
I'm getting this error after editing the SHOWTREAD template edit:

Warning: preg_replace() [function.preg-replace]: Compilation failed: regular expression is too large at offset 42684 in [path]/includes/adminfunctions_templateedits.php on line 1064

All the threads aren't showing in my forum so I can use this addon until it's fixed. HELP!!

I'm using 3.7.4 and the TMS mod.



UPDATE: I reverted the TMS template and edited the original SHOWTHREAD template. Everything works. I guess the 2 mod's don't mix well together.

According to my Facebook notifications page, every time I post I seem to be sending notifications out to any of my Facebook friends who have registered on my board with this plugin.

Is this related to the "Post news-feeds to the user's wall on Facebook" setting? I've switched it off and it seems to have stopped happening. hmmm.

There are no special instructions, he just modified the core code to account for it.

I got the same thing, had to uninstall and roll back the templates, it's taken me an hour so far and members can't post because every reply is too short no matter what the length is.

I thought I was careful when changing the templates, but there were quite a few ... I'm not a big fan of template changes like that, don't think I'll be trying it again.


Update: I found this thread. http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=259421

I am using a very heavily customized template, maybe a conflict???

Any resolve on the looping ?

I have upgraded from 1.1.3 to 2.0.1

I have cleared the browser cache. Several times in sheer desperation...

Tried it in IE; loads with page errors. (yellow ! in left hand bottom corner).

Next day, sober. Problem still exists.

Reinstalled the xml file and re-did the template edits just to be sure....

Problem still exists.

Now this could be the butt of the problem, but I hope it isn't. I'm running vb 3.6.8.

fbconnect-1.1.3 worked fine with it as far as I could see.

Now it doesn't want to load that connect button...

No, I doubt it very much. I am using a stock newthread and newreply template and I still had the issue. Something in the JS has changed

Hi sllik,

I followed your installation instructions, but on step 5 :

Step 5:

Go to FB Connect Options > News-Feed Templates and register default templates.

I got this error :

Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in [path]/includes/facebook/facebookapi_php5_restlib.php on line 2487

Warning: fopen(http://api.facebook.com/restserver.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in [path]/includes/facebook/facebookapi_php5_restlib.php on line 2487
I decide to stop and not to go to template edit before this problem fixed.

Any idea ?

Thank's.

It appears that 2.0.1 is not compatible with 3.6.8. It uses 3.7 code to function....I guess it's time to upgrade...

Hmm, totally stock and it still came up, what's the cause of a few of us seeing this issue then I wonder?
