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.

we will probably be paying to have this done this evening or tomorrow...

But my members main concern is will it be possible for their family or friends to see our website without registering or any info they share in our forums and so forth?

I'd like to know before I get this professionally installed. Thanks.

The facebook connect option doesn't control whether or not your guests will be able to see the site, or their information, your forum permissions do.

So, basically, if your permissions don't allow it now, they won't allow it after the plugin.

Thanks so much.

So if I have it installed and my members use it on their FB, their family and friends on their lists won't see the threads and all on the FB wall or info. I hope Im explaining this right. I just want to confirm, we really want this hack and almost all of us use FB, obviously.

THAT is incorrect

This plugin works like any other facebook app does. When action is made, it is posted on their wall, IF they've given permission to do so.

That permission can be revoked in the facebook side of things.

Now, the information passed on to facebook is very minimal, such as 'x user replied to x topic', or 'x user created x topic', and permission is asked every time before this is done. The end user (their relatives, friends, etc) still needs to come to the forum to view the topic and still needs to abide by forum permissions on said topic.

Wolfstream, do you think my problems have to do with the custom usergroup i set for facebook connect?

My Facebook fans are starting to complain about the fb connect only sometimes working. It seems like a FB issue, but no one else is complaining. I started a thread in the fb developer forum so well see if they have any answers.

Any ideas why else it would only work half the time?

For those of you getting this error:

* Please complete the required field "Email".

Unable to proceed with save while $errors array is not empty in class vB_DataManager_User in [path]/includes/class_dm.php on line 810
Here's a possible Fix. In your /forums/fblogin.php:

Change:

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

To:

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


REASONS:
Depending on your system, intval(XXX) can return a maximum value of 2147483647. I tried floatval(XXXX), but that has a precision of something like 14 numbers on some systems. Facebook User ID's are up to 15 digits now!! Too many people joining up!

So because of this reason, the UID is rounded off to an invalid ID and fails to return an email address on request.

Hopefully this solves the issue for some of you . It might not be the only issue, but it definitely solved mine.

I use navbits on non-vbulletin pages (my wordpress blog)

Is there a way to get this working on other pages? I get the loading image on pages that are not my forum.

My blog is at xxx.com and my forum is xxx.com/forum

I think it's a javascript error but can't figure it out. I've got the footer loaded properly. I'm getting the following errors:

Yahoo is undefined, vbulletin is null or not an object.

Edit: Fixed .. needed to include the yahoo js file.

a 500 error is a server error. Contact your systems admin, have them look over the logs.

Hmm I liked this mod so much I installed it on my second board.

However I'm getting the "click and nothing happens" problem. I've triple checked my settings and everything is like it should be.

Can this mod be installed on two different forums (different domains) on the same server IP? I have set up a second facebook app.

In otherwords its working on xxx.com but not on yyy.com even though xxx and yyy have their own separate facebook apps.

The only thing different I see is my seccond application has an optional "Get Verified" link (where as my first site does not)

Do I need submit my second application for verification? Anyone using more then one install?

Then you're doing something wrong. Check all your settings, because one of them is off.

Absolutely, I had it running on 3 at one point. Facebook doesn't care about your ip address @ all, just the domain

This app doesn't care about verification, it cares about proper code and procedures. Follow the instructions and the app works.

I have in the past had it running on 3 domains on the same ip, since I've moved them to separate ip addresses, and added a second to the main install for testing purposes, so yes, this does work with multiple installs on the same ip. Check your configuration on both ends, and make sure that everything is uploaded as it should be.

Yep ... found one tiny error in the footer... so frustrating.

Thanks for letting me know it works with multiple installs.

I've just installed this and now users can't post.

They keep getting a 'your post is too short, please legthen it to 5 characters' etc (not exact message)

It seems to be happening more in IE, if I use google chrome it doesn't do it.

Is there a fix? Paying members are not so happy at the moment..
