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.

  1. Facebook callback url settings?
  2. First Login Feed Template ID

  3. New Reply Feed Template ID
    The ID of the news-feed template bundle that will be posted to the user's news-feed when the user replied to a thread. Click here to manage news-feed template bundles.

1. Have you set up your facebook application? If so in the facebook application settings there is a setting called Callback URL. Set it to your forum's url. And thats it!

2. The Feed Template IDs will be automatically set once you go to FB Connect Options > News-Feed Templates and click on [ Register Default Templates ]

Hope this helps
