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.

I understand that BUT surely the following shouldnt happen.

Person A has all their data pulled, it shows up correctly in their profile fields and their avatar.

Person B has their data pulled, it shows fine in their profile but it shows Person A's Avatar as their Avatar

The only way to make an application in FaceBook is to become a registered member.

Is there anyway you could make these template updates automatically happen when installing the product? I know other modifications do this.

Also what is the purpose of the default user group with this mod? I created a facebook user group because it said it was recommend, but I don't know what it does. Does that mean I have to set all my users to have that user group so they can use the mod?

Merge Users?

Ok, forgive me if this has been covered already. I searched for 'merge' in this thread and I am not understanding the process.

I have this mod installed on my site and it seems to be working fine. However, I need to know the exact procedure to merge my existing users.

I assume when merge user is mentioned, that you mean to:

1) Have the user login using facbook connect and let facebook connect create a new user.
2) Use the AdminCP function under Users > Merge User to merge that user to their facebook user created by facebook connect.

My main question is, if I want my user to maintain their user ID, will setting the Source user as the Facebook user and the destination user as the existing user work?

Or do I not have the procedure right? if not, can you explain in detail the procedure or point me to the post that describes this procedure?

Thank you

Can you please let me know what changes you made on your server to get rid of the php code showing? I am having the same problem you went through.

Thanks

I made a couple of changes but I believe the one that had the effect was enabling short php tags as my server was set to only allow <?php ?> rather than the <? ?> that this script uses

did someone have a fix for this before?

The Facebook Connect cross-domain receiver URL (http://www.sundeviltalk.com/xd_recei...%220.655%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.
