Facebook Connect
This add-on allows your guests and existing users to login with their Facebook account through Facebook Connect.

  • They receive a new PM
News-Feed will be published on to the user's wall when the user:
  • Logs in for the first time
  • Replies to a thread
  • Creates a new thread

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.

Help!!
In facebook, they need to click on:
  • Applications (bottom left) -> Edit (top right of applications box)
  • Show - applications that are 'authorized' (your site should be in that list)
  • Edit Settings for your site
  • Set to whatever person wants (4 options)

This will not pair an EXISTING vbulletin user with facebook. Read this thread there are loads of people for whom this is not working. If it IS working for you then you are one of the lucky few.


Can other people with this issue please confirm this so we can (hopefully) get the developer to fix it?

Thanks Ted S, that saves some time.

I personally don't use Facebook so it's a tough mod to test. I set up an account just to use this. One problem I have is that there are far more options to set up an app than are listed in these instructions. It would be nice if every option is covered.

Version 2.0.5 fixed this for me. I can use my existing vBulletin administrator user with this app and it has posted several of my threads and informed me of personal messages.

Now that it IS working, several of my users have commented on how much they like it.

This has just stopped working for me. I dont know why. My settings are all correct but on the top right corner it just doesnt show up, it has some sort of loading thing in the top right. My board is www.wdwplanningforum.com/forum#

I have recently upgraded my board from 3.73 to the latest version but it says there is no need to upgrade? I am using fbconnect 2.02

Any ideas?

Can a default be set to disable transmission of anything not 'publicly' viewable?

To avoid privacy / security issues for admins using PM's or posting in moderator only or member only forums?

Thanks

None of my members have a problem connecting via facebook... however they receive no notifications and are not given the option to post a story when they reply or when they start a new thread.... therefore, one has to admit this isnt the same level of integration for existing members, as it is for new users.

If anyone can confirm a true link is established for existing members and not just the ability to log in, then I will remove this mod right now (despite having over a hundred users who have signed up via facebook) and start from scratch.
