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.

i saw this on the facebook template page

Facebook will deprecate template bundles and their related API calls December 20, 2009.

Please start using stream attachments with stream.publish, FB.Connect.streamPublish, and Facebook.streamPublish instead.


is this going to affect us any?

Question

One Bug:

When I Access an Account with Facebook Connect, it Connects but when I End the Session the Facebook Account is Still Oppened, is I write www.facebook.com on the Browser it Displays the Oppened Account, (very Dangerous if an User Access his/her Account on a Public Computer and isn't Aware that his/her Facebook Account will Remain Oppened even if he/she Ends the Forum Session); is an Open Window for Facebook Security and Privacy Problems.

(This Happens on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla FireFox, so is a Problem with the Mod and Not the Browser).

Can this be Corrected? How?

I also noticed that when I access the Account with Facebook Connect, I Close the Session, and Click the Facebook Connect Button, it Immediately Access the Account without Displaying the Facebook Login Window; this is Related with the Bug I mentioned before.

I Appreciate Your Answer, I'll Subscribe to this Mod's Thread to Receive a Solution to this Facebook Security Problem.

(I'm Using Version 2.0.5 of this Mod for vB37x).

My Best Regars.

I don't believe that this is a bug with this mod. I have other mods that accomplish this for other software and it is the same behavior. When you log onto facebook, you are LOGGED onto facebook. The only way to log off is to go to facebook and log off there. When I discovered this, I always log out of facebook to make sure I'm not logged in.

Read the Letters in Red, (You Know That and are Lucky to Have Discovered it, but a Common User Won't Know it, and his/her Facebook Account will be Exposed by being Left Oppened without him/her Knowing it; just in Your Case, before you realize it, your Facebook Account was Left Oppened and Exposed for Anybody to Access it and Steal It, I don't think that's a Fair Risk for Users that's why I Disabled this Mod until a Solution can be Provided for this Problem/Bug):

I've Updated to version 2.0.6 on vB37x, and the Same Bug Occurs.

I Hope You Can Fix That Bug.

I've Disabled the Mod for Now, is Not Right to Offer this Facebook Connection Option if that Causes Privacy/Security Problems for the Users on their Facebook Accounts, because their Accounts Will Remain Oppened and Anybody Can Access Them and Even Steal Them (Change the Password) if they're Accessed on a Public Computer.

My Best Regards.

Have You Uploaded the Files and Also Have You Uploaded them on the Right Paths/Locations?

Seems like you didn't Uploaded the File "facebook.php" on the Folder "facebook" on the "includes" folder; perhaps you Uploaded the Files on other Location.

If not, Check that the File is on that Folder, and if not Re-upload the Files of the "Upload" folder on their Right Location, which is the Root where the vBulletin Files are.

My Best Regards.

As I said in the other thread, you got the functionality of the mod backwards. It's not supposed to log you out of Facebook. None of the Facebook bridges work that way.

I understand.

Is it Possible for the Application to End the Facebook Session when the the User Ends the vBulletin Session?

I Hope that is Possible.

Meanwhile is Important that WebMasters Warn their Users about this, (a Notice Message), so that if they Login with Facebook they Log Out of Facebook when they Finish their Session on the vBulletin Board.

My Best Regards.
