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.

The same thing happened to me, but I fixed it.
My problem was the wrong address in the Connect tab

The installation instruction was:

Click on the Connect tab and set the Base Domain to your domain (siteurl.com) without the http or www.
But when I did so, the program automatically put http:// but not www. in front of my address, so I had a website like http://alternativa-forum.com instead of http://www.alternativa-forum.com

Go back to connect tab and check it. Does it show the proper website address? If not, change it!

I agree, the app needs to be streamlined a bit more. Not everyone wants to edit their templates manually, ick!

All in all, the app looks good. I haven't been able to fully test the data mapping, but we'll see what happens there in a few days.

I have having an odd problem I am sure some of you might be having as hell. I was having the "message too short" problem but I think I fixed it by resetting my secret code in facebook and updating it on my forums. Now I am having an issue with the newsfeed. Everytime I make a post or reply and it asks me if I want to publish on facebook everytime I press a button lik "Never Publish" or Always Publish it doesn't respond. Then if I close the box it sends the message. Hm? Also does it with the regular "Publish" "Skip"

I'd like to also make this request!

For the time being I'm going to keep the news feed option turned off because of the privacy issue, we have too many private forums which I don't want to risk going to the news feed - even some of the topic titles can be too personal.

But hoping to be able to let our members use it soon if a future version has this change

Thanks Sllik for such a fantastic hack, I've voted it for MOTM
Hi Sllik,

Just wondering if this idea has been considered? It hasn't been acknowledged yet on your part as far as I am aware, so would love to know if its an upcoming feature... or at least a possibility for one.

Cheers
Bumping... still waiting for a response

This is brilliant just for the sheer fact of instant registration through Facebook. Holy moly...great mod! I'm not using the news feeder stuff (my users would be annoyed by it, methinks), and it's installed and working great, so good show!

Hope you guys work out your problems...

This is a fantastic mod, however after brutally testing it over the last 24 hours, I have major issues with its neat compatibility with vBulletin. If anyone can help or discuss these I'd be grateful. These are:

1) Changes to Facebook or vBulletin in the future may render this mod incompatible, relying then on support from the developer to bring this mod back in line; if hundreds of administrators are relying on support from a sole developer who decides they are no longer bothered to upgrade for future facebook/vBulletin releases, this will have huge implications for incorrect login functions for potentially millions of registered members across the vBulletin communities.

2) Facebook partially holds registration details of members, eg. email addresses and passwords. If this mod was ever ditched, I could in theory have thousands of members unable to log in to my forum unless each account was manually altered in admincp. Registered members are unable to do this themselves as changes to email addys or passwords would not be possible as vBulletin would not recognise their original/old details. A logistical nightmare for administrators of large vB communities.

3) It appears that facebook Connect users cannot be contacted via mass email or mass PM add-ons as such users are not found within the database. This effectively renders the use of these important functions useless in the long-term. Especially important should the need arise above where they must take action to continue to log in to the messageboard.

4) I would like to see fblogin.php altered to accept Connect for exisiting vBulletin members only, or tweaked to go via a vB registration process where an vB email address and password can be added. The problems 1-3 above wouldn't exist if this was an alternative installation.

Apart from those important issues the mod is perfect!

This is my main issue with this mod. I have asked the question but had no awnser Even just adding a redirect to a page where email and password must be entered would help.

I am afraid until these issues are addressed I can see admins using this mod having big issues in the future.
