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.

okay, i got it to bring up the facebook login window.

but after i input the necessary information, nothing happens. it just reloads the fblogin.php page. i actually had that problem in the very beginning and it was a php4 issue. since then i did upgrade to php5 as it is now, but still no joy.

Indeed, try with different browsers (and pages), for example on mine it works perfectly with Firefox but with IE and Opera nothing happens unless you navigate to another page, for example Calendar.

What's your forum URL? I wouldn't mind trying to login to see if I have any better luck.

I had to recheck the templates for the 1.1.1 upgrade. Something minor has changed from 1.1.0 to 1.1.1 and at first all I did was re-upload the files and import the XML and then the pop up wouldn't work on any page at all. I then checked the template edits and searched for what was already there and just copied them over. Something changed in the edits that now allows the popup on all pages but without the edits causes it not to display on any page.

So far I have this running on a forum in a forums directory with none of the issues that have been reported. I still haven't gone in and try to add the connect links to the vBadvanced pages, but that's only a matter of adding some lines of code another style.

The only thing I am noticing is there doesn't appear to be any difference in my User CP where I believe there's supposed to be something different for FaceBook users in the Change Email and Password setting. Is that right, or is that just a background change in effect? It could be that because I use the GT Private Message enhancements its not showing. That mod generates different templates for the USECP_SHELL, but normally I can make the same edits to those templates with no problems.

Oh, there does appear to be a javascript error on the Arcade page even before you try to login. 'xdChannelUrl' is null or not an object

I've also noted that in FireFox, logging out of one site or the other tries to redirect you to the home page of your forum where you end up at http://www.cogonline.net/fblogin.php. You can't navigate to the homepage at all without being taken here, unless you close FireFox and reopen it.

Other then that, nothing real egregious for a BETA.

Those who are upgrading from 1.1.0 to 1.1.1 please don't forget to modify a template:
Edit Template - footer
Find:
FB.init("$vboptions[fbconnect_apikey]", "$fbconnect_xd_receiver");
Replace With:
FB.init("$vboptions[fbconnect_apikey]", "$vboptions[fbconnect_xd_receiver]");

That's what I didn't do at first and I couldn't get the pop-up on any page. After doing that however it works on all pages now! I can't find any errors at all now!

This mod is very interesting.

When you login through Facebook and create a username for yourself, what will it set as the password? I can login through facebook later, but if I want to login through the forums own login form, it won't (obviously) accept the password used to login through facebook.

What happens to the people who register through FB? Are they forever offlimits to their username through the native login form?

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.
I think there is something really wrong with your server... this should never happen!

Oh damn, this isn't working on my VBAdvanced pages.

Works perfectly on everything in my VB folder however.

Any ideas?

I'm so on the fence on this lol

The only thing stopping me is having users who register via Facebook being required to use their Facebook login from that point on. Perhaps if they could choose a password at the time of registration, that would give them the choice of the native login if they so choose.
