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

Upgrade to 2.0.6 so that users with the new super long IDs will be able to login.


This mod conflicts with PhotoPost vBGallery!

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

Benefits of Facebook Connect
  • Users can simply login with their Facebook account without going through the registration process.
  • Increase user interaction and your traffic through Facebook notifications and news-feeds!
Features
Facebook users will be able to receive Facebook notifications when:
  • 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
If any of the user's friends are also registered on the forum, they will automatically be 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.

i dont really get it, does it mean guests dont have to register on my forum?
If they come through using the Facebook Connect it draws information from Facebook and creates an account for them.

They become a registered user.

If you already have a Facebook account and are a member of your board you can connect that Facebook account to the board allowing it to post "stories" or other things like that.

wayyy too much template editing, but seems like a nice way to ease the registration for users. Sux my profile pictures and some fields are not close, but to start a new site with this mod is a good idea

I'm having a problem getting users who use fbconnect to be put into the appropriate Usergroup.

I created a new usergroup "Facebook", which has the id "17". I put 17 in the FB Connect settings under Default User Group ID. No users are being put in that group.

Any ideas?

Automatically befriend user's friends
If any of the user's friends are also registered on the forum, they will automatically be friends!

How does it know who's your friends? By email? Username? Can you explain how this works?

If a guest can simply become registered on your forum without passing the human verification then doesn't that leave you open to spam?

I would love to install this but i wouldn't love the tons of work later deleting the spam, anyone got any guidance on this?

It only puts new Facebook users into that group, if you are connecting your Facebook account to a regular member it won't move that member, they maintain their former group.

Is there any indicator on the admin side to show what existing users may be using this feature?

This is one of the best ever hacks I think for Vbulletin.

I think, you should provide more info on mapping facebook to vbulletin fields. What's the right way to do it?? Should we just create the exact same fields in vbulletin and map them with their corresponding facebook fields????
