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.

Hi,
I get the following database-errors when mapping the data. I turned on the "Import User Data From Facebook" option:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

What is the problem?

I got this error :

Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in [path]/includes/facebook/facebookapi_php5_restlib.php on line 2487

Warning: fopen(http://api.facebook.com/restserver.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in [path]/includes/facebook/facebookapi_php5_restlib.php on line 2487
I decide to stop and not to go to template edit before this problem fixed.

Any idea ?

Thank's.
anyone knows how to fix this problem ?

other thing is : I have edit my templates for the custom style, not default vb style, and when I try to login with fbconnect, it will ask to register new nickname for the forum, but then it gives me error. Is it because the news feed template error ?

Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in [path]/includes/facebook/facebookapi_php5_restlib.php on line 2487

Warning: fopen(http://api.facebook.com/restserver.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in [path]/includes/facebook/facebookapi_php5_restlib.php on line 2487

Fatal error:

* Please complete the required field "Email".

Unable to proceed with save while $errors array is not empty in class vB_DataManager_User in [path]/includes/class_dm.php on line 810
It will succeed if I choose to use already registered id for the forum. So if i logout from the forum, it will logout also from facebook.

Question for sllik: If one of my existing members decides to sign-in via Facebook Connect and links their existing forum account to their Facebook name, is there any way to get at that information from the forum side of things? e.g. profile information, mod/admincp or the database? Or is it all handled in such a way that the forum doesn't receive that information?
I'm sure some of my members wouldn't care in the slightest, but some would care a great deal. I'd like to know if I need to put a warning on it or not, should I install it.

And a general question for anyone: Tried it in 3.8.0 RC2? If I'd've known this existed earlier I'd've stopped at a 3.7 version.
If you've tried it in 3.8.0, did it work? Thanks.

Very cool idea, thanks for posting the mod.

My site is a bit unique in that I not only run vbadvanced, but I have a bridge to eFiction installed. The bridge reads the session information from VB to determine the login status. I move over the header, header include, and footer templates.

Do you think this mod will function with this type of setup?

the fbuser mysql table contains a map of fbusers to vbusers. I've heard several people installed on 3.8 with no problems.
