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

There is NO NEED to upgrade or reinstall if you already installed this mod for 3.7

This mod conflicts with PhotoPost vBGallery!

Quick fix:
Disable the following PhotoPost vBGallery plugins:
  • Userinfo Merge
  • Integrate Postbit Showthread

Benefits of Facebook Connect

  • Increase user interaction and your traffic through Facebook notifications and news-feeds!
Features

  • There is a reply to their thread or a thread that they're subscribing to
  • 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
Fetch user data from Facebook
Fetch data like name, location, profile picture and use it on your forums! (NOTE: Some data may not be available for some users)

Automatically befriend user's friends

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.

Sillk...I meant to post this http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...32#post1768032 here.

I'm having the same problem as TriMe did when he installed this mod and already had the FB contact grabber. It has something to do with having to FB libraries installed and you have to comment out something on one of them but I can't figure it out. Can you please tell him what you did for TriMe so I can fix mine too.

Thanks in Advance.

thats my opinion - I have 250 monthly users now so I see this as invaluable and because its so new, you have to cut some slack - its something someone made for free!
i'm glad sillk is still maintaining the mod and finding out why some of the features aren't working. again, he is doing it for free and we have to realize that.

I hope some of the major problems are fixed soon. I'm very excited about having a facebook presence.

hey gang,
I'm posting here, too - same problems and issues, didn't realize they were affecting everyone since the FB update . .I'm following this 3.7 thread and the 3.8 thread, as I have it installed on both, different forums ... looking forward to a patch or update that will resolve it.

hey there can you possibly explain this in a bit more detials for dummies so I can get it patched until its fixed? thanks in advance!

Just do a search in the Facebook Connect templates for the term FB.Connect.showFeedDialog

Anywhere that appears in the templates replace it with the term null

Rather than posting a one line story this will make it post a short story, a short story is the one line story proceeded by a comment from you (Which you get to choose when publising the story). You can ofc leave the comment blank and it will post like a normal short story.

I would suggest you guys disable the news-feeds in your vbconnect settings (set Enable Feeds to No) for now.
Seems to be working for me. When I post the thread appears as a story on facebook.

Ok, I am a new vB owner and I am loving it so far. So, I follow the setup instructions to the "T" for FBC (2.0.5) to start working (template edits and all). Everything appears to be working from a cursory view; I see the FB icon below the login box and when I click it the FB api kicks in and I get the FB login (I haven't gone any further than this yet) - Yes I did all the FB setup per the instructions too!

The question I have is, when in FB Connect Options->Data Mapping->Map Facebook data, only the following vB fields are available in the dropdown to map:

Biography
Location
Interest
Occupation
Profile Picture
Avatar

Yet on the Facebook drop down there are :

Facebook UID
Name
Last Name
First Name
Facebook Profile URL
Profile Picture
Small Profile
Square Profile

I know in the instructions there should be some field mapping. First what fields should I be mapping, second does vB have all the appropriate fields and third, how do I add fields to match FB.

Thanks

Andrej770

Great Mod Silk - donation coming!

Yes - It works!

I clicked the Connect With Facebook button, clicked the link to login with my existing user name, it logged me in, then I made a test post and it reported it on Facebook.

The only thing I didn't see was a post on Facebook saying that I joined, but that may be because I had joined already with a different user name on the forum.

Great Mod!
