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.

Hi Sllik, I can't seem to find the "Facebook Connect App", any chance you could post the url?

edit: Sorry, misread the install file

I've read all of the posts so far but I'm not clear on one item yet...

When a guest visitor logs in using their Facebook credentials, does a user account then actually get created on the vBulletin site?

I tested with my facebook account and after I entered what username I wanted to use it created a new account on my forum for me.

By the way, I'm running this on vB 3.8 RC1. Works great so far.

Step 1:

Set up a new Facebook Application through which vBulletin and Facebook will be communicating. When setting up the application set the Callback URL to your vBulletin url. Set up a new Facebook Application here: http://www.facebook.com/developers/ (no coding skills required)

when trying to submit, I get

"You need to have at least 5 users before you can submit your application."
for those who got this working, how did you get around the bold statement?

I went to http://www.facebook.com/developers/#...ditapp.php?new
put a name in (just gave it my forums name)

Then you have to click optional fields. In Callback URL, enter your forums URL. Scroll down and check the tickbox and click submit

the "nickname" will be your forum's new username.

You're submitting the wrong button. You're trying to submit it to the Application Directory. Scroll down and hit "save", that's what you need.

I subscribed. I want to wait until this becomes more stable (going by other's posts). Looks great and can't wait for it!

ok thanks guys for the feedback. I was doing it wrong. I installed everything and when I click

"Connect with Facebook" (at login) I get this....

Invalid Argument

The Facebook Connect cross-domain receiver URL (http://www.sundeviltalk.com//xd_rece...%220.402%22%7D) must have the application's callback url (http://sundeviltalk.com) as a prefix. You can configure the callback url in the application's settings.
