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.

Thank you for this mod..

I have a question about step 6: Template navbar

I insert the script after <!-- / login form -->
I click save

and... get a forbidden page: Forbidden
You do not have permission to access this document.

Which is strange, as I am ususally able to modify templates.

Any ideas..?

Okay, this is simply genius because we all know that Facebook is pretty much the top social network besides Myspace. This will save my readers/users so much time. And it's good to know that there might be a Myspace version!

ok just a few little things..........

i resolved the problem on my site which was this................. my forum url is

www.tabletennistalk.co.uk

my problem was the url for some reason (which does not affect the site in anyway) sometimes in the browser has the www missing of the path so obviously the /xd_receiver.htm wasnt found at times.

nevertheless that works when path is ok

question: i am concerned that it is easy or rather to easy for existing members just to add a name when connecting to facebook for example using another name and then being that person on the site.............in other words two usernames on site ? if that makes sense. i tried this myself as connecting with facebook asking me if i want to use another name which i did and allowed me to meaning i suddenly become the person on site ? which means i created a new user aswell as myself which we obviously do not want to happen ..........all sound complicated but im hoping you see where im coming from on this .......... very easy to have multiple logins

Dave
