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.

Step 7:

Check FB Connect Options > Settings for new settings and FB Connect Options >Data Mapping to map Facebook data.

If you have not added any profile fields basically I have matched two things here: location and profile picture from vbulletin field to Location and profile picture (max: 100 x 300)px to Facebook field.
I Must be REALLY stupid because I cannot figure out where these areas are located to even go there. When you say "just click default templates", WHERE is that located. Same ?? for step 7.

There is no FB Connect Options > Settings in my AdminCP.

I really do appreciate your help.

Sorry, that didn't help because I don't know how to get to that screen. Maybe my install didn't go through. Please guide me from the AdminCP.

I think I know what the problem is. Whenever I click on ANY of the clickable links on the edit FB Connect page, I am redirected to my main website with a 404 error. My forum is located in a subdirectory. I have a feeling that something in my FB application is not right.

This looks very interesting, thank you for the work you've done.
How does this manage duplicate users?
Let's say you have unique emails turned on, does it ensure the Facebook email isn't already in the vB database?
What if the Facebook name is already in the vB database?

Awesome hack!

I don't think I'll install though, as I'm a simple kind of a guy and dislike having to edit templates manually whenever reverting is required on vb updates. So I don't think this hack is for me... It's a pity this kind of thing can't be done without the edits. (Yes, I know it's not possible)

facebook connect will ask you a username which will immeidately check it in your database if such username exist or not.

actaully, on my install when a user from facebook joined, it asked if they where already a member, and if so, it asked to enter the username in a box.

Yes same here. This mod is awesome, but after I read the install instructions and noticed all those template edits I had to back off.


I already have many styles with template edits and it's a pain in the ass to manually edit them when I upgrade my forums.


This is a great mod but not for lazy guys like me.

i have not yet installed this but i got a question which may not sound smart

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

and

"Benefits of Facebook Connect

* Users can simply login with their Facebook account without going through the registration process."

i dont really get it, does it mean guests dont have to register on my forum?
