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.

No problems, will do.

Yes we do ask for user birthday, due to coppa rulings.
Would it not be easier for a facebook user, to gain access to a special JOIN form, that is essentially our normal register form, minus username and password bit... surely the db would be propogated with site required db fields for traditional user registration then.

The thing is that users under the age of 13 are not allowed to register with facebook anyways, so there is no need for age verification.

Outstanding addon.... the only thing I can see missing is pulling in userdata to the profile (to make the synced account have a bit more real info about the person... would be especially useful since most people take the time to fill out their facebook profiles)

also i might have missed this but once your facebook and vbulletin account are synced is there a place where individual users can go to opt in or opt out out of the new post/thread writing to their wall feature. i would want to turn it on but i would imagine some of our people would not want their facebook accounts overrun with vbulletin postings.

i read through the whole thread but have yet to install it but i probably will soon.

Hi mate.

We have disabled the plugin now. Until we get the issue resolved, it could be a usergroup permissions thang.

We have copied attributes for usergrp 2 ( registered users ) to new Facebook usergroup.

New members via facebook, were indeed registered to usergroup 16 ( facebook grp ) but this is where the system crapped itself, and we got database errors.

Its always something simple that manifests itself to be the most complicated to fix lol

What is the difference between "New (IEN) Thread Reply Notification" and "New Subscribed Thread Reply Notification" ?

My users are getting messages for every new post with the first one set to yes and the second to no.

Seems to be working on my board. The home page no redirects to forum home upon login (I previous had to set up a redirect to make that happen). So far so good.
