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.

Whenever you put in your FB info, it justs redirects to fblogin.php and keeps asking for login info. I noticed several others with the similar issue, but didnt see any resolution.
I had the same problem but you have to open it up to unregistered users and just change forum viewing permissions etc yourself for the unregistered usergroup. Worked for me anyway.

well basically we want this to dump the accounts into CoPPA and we manually approve who we want to have access.

Aye, that's exactly how I've got it. Change the default usergroup to 4 under FB Connect options. They'll go into the COPPA usergroup once registered (via Facebook) but to get registered in the first place the unregistered usergroup needs permission to view the forums (even if you don't actually show them individual forums under view permissions) if that makes sense.

Slick I have one issue that I like to take care of and I cannot find how to address it.

When a user have some activity in my forum and publish the story to facebook wall, facebook states the following:
The User has join MySite or
The User has created a new thread at MySite
While the link to MySite it refers to http://www.mysiti.com/forum

I want the .com extension to be displayed on facebook wall like that
The User has join MySite.com or
The User has created a new thread at MySite.com

And I want the link to direct to http://www.mysite.com and not to http://www.mysiti.com/forum

Any idea how I am correcting those issues?

The image is hosted by FaceBook, so you'd have to create your own and change the file path to your local image.

this option seems to be working: "New Subscribed Thread Reply Notification" ... but if you click it off and still subscribe to the thread, the notification is sent to the thread creator.

but this one: "New Own Thread Reply Notification" doesnt work with or w/o thread subscription.

I've set my own Facebook account to link with a test VB account, but would like it linked to my main account.
Any ideas on this one? :S
