Facebook Connect
This add-on allows your guests and existing users to login with their Facebook account through Facebook Connect.

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

Benefits of Facebook Connect

  • Increase user interaction and your traffic through Facebook notifications and news-feeds!
Features

  • 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)

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.

You decrease your new usersignups since almost everyone has a facebook account.

And I wanna store their database to contact now and then!

Or am I mistaking?
You are mistaken.

As they connect they create a new account if they aren't connecting to one they already have.

Basically same thing.?

Also, I think this needs to add an icon to your profile or something. some sort of more recognition on the forums.

You could probably do that by just adding a rank image

This is a great MOD, thanks to the developer

One quick Q about RSS feeds: I was publishing my VBulletin RSS feeds on my blog page, however after installing the Facebook Connect MOD it got deactivated for some reason.

Any workaround on this?

Advanced thanks for your help.

Is this concept possible with Twitter logins through the Twitter API? That would be awesome.

I would suppose something along the same lines could be written.

I don't know why VB doesn't include openID already default. That way it would probably make it easy to link everything together..

Installed and working, big thanks for that.

I use vba and the connect via Facebook option doesn't appear in the standard VBA login box, is there a hack or code I can add to get it to appear there? Or has anyone made a module for this yet?

Facebook UID is your user id like 172011554 and Profile page URL is the actual url to your profile... http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?...54&ref=profile

Installed, works great. Just a thought, maybe you could make a feature where members who are already registered with a board can go into their Usercp and input all their Facebook information to reap the same rewards? Just a thought.

interesting...

Like a link you can put on your site that says 'copy your Facebook info to your profile here'

That would be sick...
