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'm a new VB owner and this is my first hack. I've DLed the files and printed out the instructions. Step 2 says to upload the necessary files? In what directory? Do I just drop the entire folder in the forums directory? Thanks in advance.

Ok, I figured out the last question. I've installed the XML file. Now I'm on step 4: Go to FB Connect Options>Settings and set your api key......Where is this located because I don't see it in my Admin CP.

Armyqt,

Go to your admincp and click on vBulletinOptions (should be one of the top options on the left hand side) and then click on the dropdown until you find "FB Connect". I haven't installed this yet, but I looked at the screenshot and noticed it there.

I have installed this but have a few issues...

One is my users who have viewing of avatars turned off see the avatar of the user who logged in with facebook.

Two is on my vBulletin CMPS homepage I do not have a navbar on my page, instead I the login found in useadv_portal_welcomeblock_lean login box and thus the connect with facebook is not shown on the vbadvanced page.

Thanks Glamrock. I had FINALLY figured that out, now I'm stuck on the next step. While I am very grateful for this hack, the instructions are not comprehensive for a newbie. And I am good at following instructions.

I'm currently stuck on step 5.

Armyqt,

I can see what you mean....

Step 5:

Go to FB Connect Options > News-Feed Templates and register default templates. Then Go to FB Connect Options > Settings and save your settings (even if you don't change anything).

......I downloaded this mod last night and I was planning on adding it to a test site to check it out. But, I'd get stuck on that one too. Any further clarification on this Step from anyone that has it working? What does "register default templates" mean and how do you do it?

Ok, so edited the templates. However, I still did not complete step 5 and step 7. Where is FB Connect Options>Settings for new settings and FB Connect Options>Data Mapping located?

Please someone help. I have to go to work tomorrow and I don't want the board to be down all day.

Step 5:

Go to FB Connect Options > News-Feed Templates and register default templates. Then Go to FB Connect Options > Settings and save your settings (even if you don't change anything).

Just click Default Templates and it will create default feed to your facebook.

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.
