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.

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.

I just thought of something....

I have CMPS on my site, how does this affect my callback URL??

I tried http://sundeviltalk.com and my actual forums http://sundeviltalk.com/forums, neither worked

By the way, I'm running this on vB 3.8 RC1. Works great so far.
so as I understand it, this hack only works for new registrations?

Yes, that's correct so far. Another member mentioned above that they couldn't link their current user account with the Facebook login...only able to create a new account on their forum.

yup, i wrote an earlier post stating that i'd happy to donate more funds if he could bridge this with existing users.

I haven't tried it, and it seems like it will be a big pain in the ass, but i guess you could merge the current users with the new facebook account.

Hi guys, I'm here again to give some support.... Those who have problems with cross-domain receiver make sure the Callback URL (a setting on the facebook application that you created in step1) is set to your forum's url

the callback url needs to point to the directory where you uploaded the xd_receiver.htm file
