YAFB - Yay! Another Facebook Bridge
Mod Version: 5.0.4b, by mrpaint (Coder) mrpaint is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.7 Rating: (25 votes - 4.44 average) Installs: 230
Released: 19 Sep 2009 Last Update: 30 Sep 2011 Downloads: 2524
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

The add-on has been updated to reflect Facebook new policy starting October 1st (read more here). Basically this is a maintenance update for user of this add-on from the past. The add-on now supports vBulletin 3.8.x only. In this new version, there are only the basic features: register and login (some simple sharing too). It keeps old settings so you don't need to re-configure.

How to update (this is important):
1. Disable the add-on in AdminCP
2. Upload files in the package (make sure you disable the add-on before uploading)
3. Import the xml in the package, choose Yes to rewrite.
4. Re-enable the add-on
5. Done

Just remember to disable the add-on before uploading files and you will be okie.

My navbar is also pretty heavily modified. I did this search an navbar still showed up... but the facebook connect button still does not shot up in my navbar. What code do I need to insert in my navbar to have it showup?

I had this same error, but had php5. I was able to fix it by going into my cpanel. Evidently my host had upgraded, but still allowed things to be processed in php4. I had to change that setting and it worked!

When a FB user registers on my forum via FBConnect, their avatar is NOT imported.

Everything else seems fine...but no avatar. Its a "vanilla" install. I see there is a setting to change the number of avatars imported...I left it at its default.

Their avatar DOES display during the registration process...but it doesnt seem to save to my forum/server.

Any ideas?

And if you figure out the issue, how can I "resync" the user accounts that have been created via FBConnect so that their avatars show up?

So let me get this straight. If I install this hack, anybody with a Facebook account can log onto my forum, even if they happen to be already banned previously.

Depends on how you banned them.

If they try and link a banned account to the Facebook account they will still be banned. Trying to create a new account will be covered by the same rules and restrictions that people have to follow using normal registration, so if you blocked an email or IP at that level they will still be blocked.


Note: Email is conditional on if you select that the user must input a real email address and not use the Facebook proxy. Facebook proxy is consistent so you could also block registrations on that as well, or just force real email addresses.

Does anyone have the instructions to install this on v3.6.12? I can't seem to get a hold of the mod's author. Thank you in advance.

if i disabled this mod in future, will new members who joined the forum through their FB accounts be still able to log in?

anyway to prevent new members from joining through their facebook accounts but only linking up their FB accounts AFTER they have registered through VB?

i can insist that a proper email be entered instead of the FB coded email being stored on my member db right?

tks for taking the time to help!

Depends, but in most cases yes. By default the joining user is prompted to create a local password. This means that they can login without the Facebook connection at any time, provided they remember it.

Forcing a real email helps this as they will have a legitimate way of resetting their password.

I believe disabling the Auto Register feature will do this for you. Linking an existing account is a matter of going to your UserCP and logging in to Facebook there.

Yes, it is in the option area. It will also follow any other registration restrictions you have. For example, I run a spam stopping mod and it scans the Facebook registrations as well.
