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.

Even with the upgrade done I am still getting the error I was when you click the login button

Please if someone could look at the attached image and give me som clues as to what might be causing this problem I would really appreciate it. I have spent hours upon hours trying to sort it, including completly reinstalling the forum.

Good to see existing users can now use the feature! I notice the created user has the facebook app email address. Any way we can get their proper email address in that field?

this is getting unbearably frustrating. what is my callback URL??

Invalid Argument
The Facebook Connect cross-domain receiver URL (http://sundeviltalk.com/xd_receiver....%220.755%22%7D) must have the application's callback url (http://sundeviltalk.com/forums/xd_receiver.htm) as a prefix. You can configure the callback url in the application's settings.
