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 just have some simple questions about this add on.

will this immediately register the user in my vbulletin once they connect with facebook?

i guess what im getting at is... will their email addresses register in my database?

this is particularly important for me as i run a nightclub and we send regular promotional material to our patrons.

so i guess i want to know .... will this minimise registrations for my site or increase registrations.

Hrm, maybe that's what I'm seeing, but I swear I was getting notifications for threads I've never even opened.

I'm also getting notifications saying that 'member has replied to thread', but 'member' is not the person that created the thread, not last replied.

Yeah my notifications seem to always state the person its notifying has replied not who has replied

You made a mistake editing your footer... it should be:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

instead of

there will be an email address but the users need to allow to receive emails from your board in the cp.

i got this installed on our test board.... and some comments/suggestions.

a slight bug (which i dont know if it can be fixed) is i can login fine with the facebook connect but i cant stay logged..... i have to click the facebook button each time i go to our dev board to relogin (and i just have to click it... no relogging in) but it is annoying to have to do that every time.

as for the suggestions.... this really needs to pull the other user data to fill out the profile (and check on subsequent logins so that data is updated).

dunno how easy this would be to do but since it was suggested above i would add it.... i would like to have some way to be able to promote facebook users to administrator or moderator usergroups (even though you suggested against this). and my reasoning is the way we run our board is every so often we promote our some of our better users to moderator.

and this also speaks to the facebook wall integration.... generally our most frequent posters are in our moderator group (the ones most likely to draw new members to our site through facebook).

overall i love the potential of this (and could solve a huge issue ive always had with vbulletin.... a centralized user database) but it still needs some more time in the oven for me to install it on our public board.

2 things -

1 when I try to click "News-Feed Templates" the page is just white - no error
2 the unique group thing - I want ALL of my usergroups to use it, so how can I define just one for everyone?

thx in advance

1. not sure... make sure you uploaded all the files
2. if you want all users using this just leave it as is - don't create a new group.
