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.

Essentially from what I gather.

User logs out of your forum.

Logs into Facebook, then can fire up the forum, and on logging in will be asked if they want to sync with facebook.. kinda weird explanation, but AFAIK thats how it integrates.

They have the option, as an existing user, to fire up the forum under their existing username and pass.

Now that they have facebook & your forum in sync, when a post or message is sent via the forum it displays in their facebook profile, etc.

The bonus is that users on facebook, who are friends of your member as a facebook user, then have the opportunity to join your forum, and vice versa.

As I have never used facebook, im not sure how the protocol works with permissions and privacy, but am sure that its all good.

I do have some basic function, queries, such as "ignoring a user on facebook" does this transfer to your forum too?

Anyhoo.. will await a fix for the new-user login stuff from the coder.



Reply to the guy: clear IE files? pmsl... im not sure what use that has for preventing database crash due to inadequate login bridge

How are you finding , new users signing in to your forum, via facebook. and bypassing signup process for VB ?

That is where we are failing

I only have one mandatory signup requirement and that's a custom field, so they'll be prompted to fill that in as soon as they log in.

Do you have birthdays required in your vB Options? If so, they will be required to fill that in the next time they try to edit their profile.

i give up. anyone want to check for me on their end? http://www.sirenssociety.com.

i was the second or third person to install this when sllik first published it, and it worked. but ever since he bridged it for existing users, i get nothing. nada. zilch.

i've cleared my history and cache. whenever i click on the facebookconnect, nothing happens. both in IE and FF.

i've also uninstalled it and reverted the templates. and i reinstalled it. twice.

any clues?

Open up your forum for guest so they can view the forumhome, then try to login. then standard login page may be missing the footer code.

also something else that was brought up as a concern is how does this work when you do a mass email? we only send out one or maybe 2 mass emails a year but we would like to be able to still do that and not sure how facebook would like that since this is storing the facebook proxy email.

also related to my above feature suggestion.... when/if you get the personal data part working i would also like to see some sort of cron job setup where it resyncs the data every so often just because in general people update their facebook info more than any forum system ive ever seen and it would be nice to pull that data down when its updated.

This goes for both FF and IE

Depending on your callback url - if your callback url is http://yoursite.com/ then to use this mod you need to go to http://yoursite.com and vice versus.

On my site I have http://www.globalhockeynetwork.com/ as the callback url so if I go to my site using http://www.globalhockeynetwork.com everything works.

If I use http://globalhockeynetwork.com - I get the error in the attachment.

Check out this page to set rewrites in your .htaccess file to automatically direct to one or the other

soulface, you are brilliant!

I now remember i deleted the footer fron the standard_error page because I didn't like the formatting of it. So now, I just entered the fb code for the footer onto that page and it works.

Thanks!

Actually, turning off both

"New (IEN) Thread Reply Notification
Send a Facebook notification to the user when there is a new reply to a thread that the user is subscribed to with instant email notification?"
and
"New Subscribed Thread Reply Notification
Send a Facebook notification to the user when there is a new reply to a thread that the user is subscribed to?"

seems to stop members from getting a notification on every reply.
Either option doesn't appear to be doing what is advertised as the user should only get a notification to subscribed threads, right?

In your UserCP on your forum, did you adjust the email settings?

Did you adjust your application settings on your Facebook page?
