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 have installed this mod and enabled users to connect to the forum only through Fconnect. Everyones seems to want to be able to change their names as in - when they connect with Fconnect, their fbook name becomes their user name. Is there a way to change their name or give them anither nick for privacy sake?

Hi all,

I installed this on my 4.1.3 with i had first to disable because forum home show up blank, also no server side prosessing is done when it is active. The I uinstalled it as anny else would do. Then I got to remember that 4.1.3 has a built in youtube fungtion so I got ahead and activated it, piced all my desired fungtions and linked it to my facebook app with secret codes and what not. Aplied settings, reloaded forum home and now also this time server side didnt do anyting bacuase the page was blank as whit this product.

I think that this product has somehow made my database corrupted or someting.

Now I ask for help to what do do for restore the orginal Vb Utube fungtion so that it work without reinstalling the whole forum. Because I dont want to reinstall as I been up working my but of for 4 days just to configure all the great hacks, prod or plugins all the great programmers here do make.

I am a newbie into PHP and stuggle to find things in AdminCP all the time so please if someone would help, make it with details about what to do because I dont understand PHP code at all.

I thanks on forehand

Any ideas?

This is a fantastic mod that opens up a host of opportunities for vBulletin communities, however after brutally testing it over the last 24 hours, I have major issues with its neat compatibility with vBulletin. If anyone can help or discuss these I'd be grateful. These are:

1) Changes to Facebook or vBulletin in the future may render this mod incompatible, relying then on support from the developer to bring this mod back in line; if hundreds of administrators are relying on support from a sole developer who decides they are no longer bothered to upgrade for future facebook/vBulletin releases, this will have huge implications for incorrect login functions for potentially millions of registered members across the vBulletin communities.

2) Facebook holds registration details of members, eg. email addresses and passwords. If this mod was ever ditched, I could in theory have thousands of members unable to log in to my forum unless each account was manually altered in admincp. Registered members are unable to do this themselves as changes to email addys or passwords would not be possible as vBulletin would not recognise their original/old details. A logistical nightmare for administrators of large vB communities.

3) It appears that facebook Connect users cannot be contacted via mass email or mass PM add-ons as such users are not found within the database. This effectively renders the use of these important functions useless in the long-term. Especially important should the need arise above where they must take action to continue to log in to the messageboard.

4) I would like to see fblogin.php altered to accept Connect for exisiting vBulletin members only, or tweaked to go via a vB registration process where an vB email address and password can be added. The problems 1-3 above wouldn't exist if this was an alternative installation.

Apart from those important issues the mod is perfect!

After clicking on Connect with facebook icon it goes to the page where user needs to select a Nickname and got to click on Set email notification settings. Is there any way by which I can integrate import email feature on the grant permissions box only or is there anyway by which users can give full permission in one step (most of the users do not click on it and report error).

I'm sorry if this has been asked already - I searched unsuccessfully but can't go through page-by-page throough 105 pages of replies.

Is it possible to use this but to disable the new-feeds option?

Seems to be a problem with the redirects when registering, if you try and skip any part allowing facebook to set the username it goes to a script error page that includes the email too which is optional using this but it should be mandatory since its giving errors.

Please Help!

please help me i got several problems with my form after we changed the domain from ( to (, and it looks like it's all related to FBconnect.
1. the fbconnect button is still linking to the old domain (see the attachment fbconnect.jpg)
2. we had a banner on the top of the forum which is gone now.
3. there is a scroll(horizon) bar at the bottom of the page which is not needed at all.

my questions are:
1. how can i change the url linked to FBconnect
2. how can i change the FBconnect style coordinates (in the source code there is #fb_hiddencontainer) if i change the "left=-10000" that removes the scroll bar.
