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.

basically add this

if you already have rewriting on then you may already have the


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in which case just add
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

on the end of whatever is in there

I setup the whole thing successfully but I have the following issue.

My forum path in vbulletin settings is http://mysite.com/forum without the www.
I setup the facebook application with the callback URL to be the same as the vbulletin http://mysite.com/forum

Now if somebody access my site by typing http://mysite.com or just mysite.com (without the www.) the facebook connect plugin works flawlessly!

But if you access the website using the www prefix like http://www.mysite.com or just www.mysite.com then the facebook connect is not working. So most of the people that enter my site and using the www. prefix cannot use facebook connect.

I tried change the forum path in vbulletin settings by adding the www. prefix and updated the facebook application callback URL with the www. prefix and I am getting the exact opposite results.

Now when you enter the site with the www prefix like http://www.mysite.com you can use the facebook connect. But if you enter it without the www like http://mysite.com then facebook connect once again is not working.

Any idea how I can make it work with both the www. prefix and without?

Is this a known issue?
I think there is actually a better way than editing the .htaccess file. In the facebook app settings under the Connect tab set the Base Domain setting.

I'm very excited to have found this mod, and hope to install it. A couple of questions first:

1 - is there any known conflict with the vbulletin/wordpress bridge mod? We use this so that our forum members can also comment on the wordpress-driven portion of the site, etc. The mod basically shares VB users as WP users.

2 - just to make sure I'm understanding ... we require registration (which includes email activation) to create new threads or respond to threads. If someone comes along and logs in w/ their FaceBook account - will they be able to post immediately, or will the email activation go to them (or I assume, their FaceBook email account?)

Thanks in advance - will likely pay to have this installed if the answers are favorable.

BellyBelly -
I've seen reports that it *IS* working.

OK - I've installed it now on http://www.theworshipcommunity.com/forums/

However,
When I attempt to view the application on FaceBook, it gives me this on this link:
http://apps.facebook.com/theworshipcommunity/

Errors while loading page from application
Parse errors:

CSS Error (line 32 char 30): Error in parsing value for property.: 'background-repeat' Declaration dropped.

FBML Error (line 348): illegal tag "body" under "fb:canvas"

CSS Error (line 355 char 140): Error in parsing value for property.: 'background-repeat' Declaration dropped.

FBML Error (line 397): illegal tag "noscript" under "fb:canvas"

FBML Error (line 580): illegal tag "noscript" under "fb:canvas"

FBML Error (line 625): illegal tag "noscript" under "fb:canvas"

There are still a few kinks Facebook and the makers of TheWorshipCommunity.Com are trying to iron out. We appreciate your patience as we try to fix these issues. Your problem has been logged - if it persists, please come back in a few days. Thanks!

Hi Slikk,

This is working great on my site. Thanks for helping with the install. Three questions

1. I have a vb login on the homepage of my site (non-vb page). Is there any way I can have Facebook Connect on this login page?

2. I don't have the vbconnect link like you have in the fourth screenshot. Is that an omission?

3. How can I re-associate a user an existing user with a different facebook account if its already associated with another.

Does it stop them from using a nick that is already in use as a registered name?

How? They'll want to know how to associate their facebook with their existing account.

Also, does this work with promotions?

I have them set to come in as Registered Users, they are a bit limited until they get past 15 posts, then they are promoted. Will the promotions work?
