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 would like to reinstall this.

Is it safe to say that the latest update fixed some of the main issues people reported?

I get an error at Step 5 of the setup

Go to FB Connect Options > News-Feed Templates and register default templates. Then Go to FB Connect Options > Settings and save your settings (even if you don't change anything).
I just get an error "Sorry, there has been a page error"

I think it maybe because my host enforces firewall rules

Does this sound feasible?

Could somebody help and tell me what DNS name FB Connect tries to connect to

Thanks

VJ

I tried it again using the fbConnect button and when I posted a new thread it actually brought up a dialogue to post a message to facebook. That never came up before. Thanks for the 2.05 fix!

I have it installed and he seems to be working now.


How ever, how can users change the new feed settings in the future? They may have it on now but may want to turn it off in the future.

Okay so I thought I had fixed.. I'm trying to use a different group for when you sign up using the facebook. I have it set to 12 which is for facebook users. And Facebook Users is the exact same as Registered Users however when those that sign in and they are in group facebook they get that they don't have access but if I move them to the Registered Users they can see it. What did I do wrong?

Awesome mod. One of the best tools I've seen in a long, long time.

Quick question though. It looks like the user has to click the "Connect to Facebook" link every time they visit the site or it's assumed they aren't an FB user. Is this correct or am I missing something?

I created a new usergroup based of registered members permissions and called it 'Facebook Registered'. This group had an ID of 24.

I entered 24 into the FBconnect settings.


At first when I signed up, it didnt not move my first attempt into the user group, but I went to bed and when I got it, it was there so there much have been some cron job done to update it over night.

Well I figured why it wasn't showing. I have 3 pages for the portal and vbulletin. I didn't have the permissions setup for the usergroup to see it so i had to go to each one and set it up. It now works.

Your site has the same problems I did I signed in using my facebook account to yours and you need to setup all the permissions for the new usergroup. Dunno what portal you are using or what but you need to find the permissions and add the usergroup you have so they can see things.

I used vBA cmps and I had to go to quick permissions and click them on for the things I wanted them to see and now everything works like a champ.

Me too. I noticed that, when I tried to post a message with quickreply.
I had to disable the template-edits for the newsfeed-capability. Now I can post again with no hassle. Maybe this can be fixed?

Anyway, thank you very much for this great addon!

I have to answer myself...
Unfortunately I forgot to search within the vb3.7-thread of this modification and there I found a workaround. The mentioned solution worked for me too in 3.81 (Firefox - I couldnīt test other browsers so far). I had to switch off the wysiwyg-mode in the editors and now it seems to work without hassle. No "message too short..."-error any more.

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.
This didn't seem to fix the issue on my side.
