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.

Are there any special changes I would need to make if my vBa homepage is not in the root forum directory? Logging in from the index takes me to the http://www.cogonline.net/fblogin.php page. I'm currently handling that with a redirect.

Love this as a concept but i'll have to be careful with the fb usergroup permissions as it'll be an open day for trolls!

[note to self: Maybe allow to post but not start threads] Can I get the face book button in a seperate column to the right of the username/pw box easily?

Tagged for a later install. Thanks for the release sllik - great work.

I'm getting this as well, but only some of the time.

It looks as if I am going to have to uninstall this. A brilliant idea but needs a bit more work.

It seems to me that the file fblogin.php lacks an ending

I'm also a bit confused at the last of these lines - why is it different?

Would this solution work for ya?
yes, thank you.

make sure you make the templates changes in the 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 update and Re-upload clientscript/fbconnect.js

Do you think it's possible to add an image verification to this programs registration process? It probably won't take long for someone to figure out a script to easily spam forums using this form of registration. It'd be great to try and prevent that with whatever default form of verification everyone's forum uses.

But this uses facebook verification, no?

All you gotta have is a Facebook email and password to start with and enter the username you want for the forum and that's it. I don't know what kind of system Facebook uses to register with but in this case we have to hope it's good enough to keep spammers out or else it's very easy to join any forum that uses this mod and spam away.
