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.

sllik: can you explain how the Data mapping works. It doesn't fill the data into the fields as far as I can tell so it causes issues in postbits BUT it shows fine when you view peoples profiles.

How does the profile pull the mapped data rather than the fields, especially as when i cant see any template edits that relate to the info in the post bits

URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration
You need to change your server config. Search google on how to deal with this.

would you mind posting your button once you create it? I'd like to see how it looks and possibly use it. if not, I understand, just thought I'd ask.

Well, I installed it today and it worked no problem with my eFiction bridge and vBadvanced. Great job


Can my current members connect to there facebook accounts as well? I looked all over and can not find an option for this in the user panel.


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.
