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.

Not sure, it does ask if you want to use you exsisting username (suppose that's if if you have one already registered)

Think it matches the email address from facebook to the one registered on yer forums

Ok, I will do that. Thank's for your reply.

Another question is : when login to the forum with fbconnect and choose to use existing user, it automatically mapping the email address registered in facebook to user in the forum. Where can i see the mapping ? or there's a data table for it ?

For example : user A (registered user in forum) logged in with his email (his_email address in facebook) using fbconnect, then automatically user A logged in to the forum. Is there a way to change his forum username ? (in case he has 2 registered username in the forum) ?

Yeah that's odd, sometimes it does it for me, sometimes not. Is there anything I can do?

Thanks again.


Edit - Never mind, I found how to do it. Now I need to figure out how to add the same functions from the thread posting area to eFiction.
You could post here how to do it as I can't figure that bit out either

Edit - I've worked out how now too. Seems to be working like a charm at the moment. Great stuff

They have to logout and then log back in using the FBConnect button. Then when they're asked what screen name they want to use, there will be an option to use their existing account.

are people having to clear their cookies and cache everytime they log into their board?

I get this almost everytime

The Facebook Connect cross-domain receiver URL (http://sundeviltalk.com/xd_receiver....%220.711%22%7D) must have the application's callback url (http://www.sundeviltalk.com/) as a prefix. You can configure the callback url in the application's settings.

Has anybody played with having other activities outside of Thread stuff report back to Facebook yet? I thought I saw a link to some documentation on how to format requests, but I can not seem to find it. I was thinking of stuff like adding pictures, comments on profiles, and for my own use eFiction actions of story posting and reviews.
