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.

Any reason why? Just curious.

Not really, I thought it would be more simple. Plus if they used the facebook thing, would the previous members connect and I rather have usernames as nicknames instead of emails presuming I understand this correctly.

If the users are registering with FBConnect, they have to pick a forum screenname to continue. If users are just linking thier existing account with FBConnect, they still have to use their existing forum screename.

Great Product saved me a ton of time! Quick question, on users logging out of the forums the logout page (cookies cleared) does not have the FBConnect button under teh logon box. Any idea why this might be. I double checked the navbar template and the FB Code appears in both login areas of that template. If you want to see the behavior the URL is www.wdwnewstoday.com/forums

I'm getting the minimum number of character bugs too. It's something to do with the change needed to this in SHOWTHREAD, newreply and newthread


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Where qr_prepare_submit is replaced with fb_qr_prepare_submit

There's some kind of bug in that code Note i'm running 3.7

My users (and me) are still reporting getting notifications for threads they've never subscribed or even posted in.

funny how I have the complete opposite problem but I guess I would rather have mine then yours. getting those notifications must be annoying

edit:
oops nevermind. I just got a notification for someone replying to a thread that I started, but I am not subscribed to, even though I have this selected as no in admin cp

New Own Thread Reply Notification
Send a Facebook notification to the user when there is a new reply to own thread?

Yes No
