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.

dunno if this is possible (but what about putting some form of a timer on it so the thread could be created first).

or there has to be some form of logic used when vbulletin creates the thread.... would it not be possible to use the same logic to get the thread id even if it doesnt exist yet?

What about calling the facebook script after the post?

Can someone post a screen shot of how the wall post looks? Hmm... not sure the point of a wall post with title if Threadid can't be captured... unless i misread... hmm... if it can be done as a feed where it grabs threads started by facebook users after the fact ... on a schedule or something... hmmmm

okay, thank you sllik
I would think we could change that link still?

Just upgraded to the latest release, but no there aren't any FBConnect buttons showing anywhere

Almost as if it doesn't exist.. But YES.. I have uploaded the new files, imported and made all the template changes.

Any ideas ?

Is this now creating a new account in the database if someone logs in using their facebook account? If so...very cool!

I see this now:
Fetch user data from Facebook
Fetch data like name, location, profile picture and use it on your forums!
Friendly little bump...

So that people can goto their facebook profile or in our case to view the public area of their Facebook Game account. It currently has to be done by the user manually, some people have trouble working out what their Facebook id is though (facebook users arent always the most computer literate)

Oh and additionally how do I change the Facebook connect buttons back, those AJAX ones with the loading bars are causing major trouble for some people. The plain graphics were much better (might be useful if you could have an option in admin to set either to the Ajax ones or the plain image ones)

Has anyone used there professional intsall? if so , what was your outcome?

question: what happens to current users who have facebook? will there sign ins work with there current info and there facebook info? Or will they have to use there facebook info from the time its is installed? Also will you go back and redo it when you add updates?
