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.

They require the same thing most forums require. Image verification and email verification.

Does it work when you try mine? http://diecastcrazy.com/community/forums.php

If so, then maybe something is wrong with your files or code. If not, then it's something beyond that I guess. It works on all browsers for me.

I have questions:

1) When login with a facebook account, it will create a vbulletin account right?

2) Once this vb account is created, is the email adress and password also saved in the vb database, so they could login next time without their facebook details and only with their vb account? I ask this because I'm interested what happens if they delete their facebook account, but want to stay in our vbulletin.

3) Which data exactly will be taken from facebook? In example, we have custom profile fields for "real name" .. would it be possible to import this real name data from facebook too?

That's all your supposed to see at the end of the URL. It opens a Javascript "window" within thhe window. If your not getting anything, it's likely you need to carefully double check your template edits.

I think we're dealing with a whole lot of user error in most cases.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm going to try and answer these questions...

1. Yes.

2. No email address is saved or password, only a username. You'd have to manually update the profile if a user wanted to login directly to the forum.

3. No data seems to be taken yet. Hopefully in a future update the coder will figure out how to do this.

I was using IE7, and I fixed it by clearing my temporary internet files, clearing cookies, etc etc, then closed all my IE windows and tried again. Worked fine. I would try that.

this may have been covered already, but for anyone not getting the popup just make sure the callback URL ends with a trailing slash (yoururl.xxx/forum/). I was experiencing the same problem until i fixed this. Oddly enough it worked in IE7 but not in FF3 or Chrome.

I never see the Feed Dialog like http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/...es_to_Facebook. I only see the other in notifications

In CNET, when you publish a comment, a window pop up with the "PUBLISH THIS STORY TO YOUR FACEBOOK PROFILE?". Is implemented here?
