I am at a loss too (on the avatars). But, I have figured out that something was out of whack with the log in because it's not on the admin log in anymore.DeViAnThans3 wrote:HeyScrapbookSupplies wrote:Hi Hans!
I was off the computer until now, so my replies are late. Thank you for helping though.It was happening when I'd log in to the ACP, trying to use the FB Connect. If I use the regular log in button there is no problem. Phew!DeViAnThans3 wrote:Hey,
1) The file not found error: this is very weird.. does this happen after you log in (provided login credentials)? Does it also happen if you go to the ACP again after getting the error?
Please note that it is impossible to log in with Facebook Connect to your admin control panel. There are many reasons why, but the major one is security, obviously.
The data import and off site linking of avatars are enabled.DeViAnThans3 wrote:2) Avatars
Again quite some possible explanations.
First check these ..
- Is data import enabled in the ACP -> facebook connect settings ?
- Are remote avatars allowed?
- Is PHP safe mode off?
- Are there any restrictions on PHP functions fsockopen() or fopen() functions to remotely connect to other servers?
Also: note that Facebook permissions are taken into account. You can't see avatars from other Facebook people if you also can't see them at Facebook. There also is a difference when logged in via Facebook Connect or not..
However, php safe mode is OFF (they wont turn it on). And my webhost said the fsockopen() or fopen() functions are enabled. Also I checked the permissions/privacy on my own personal facebook account and I am visible, so at least my avatar should show up, I think anyway.
Do you have any other thoughts on it?
Again, I appreciate help. Have a great new year!!
It is impossible to log in to the admin panel with Facebook Connect; I btw thought I made sure the Facebook Connect button was hidden when accessing the ACP login screen? I find it quite weird that it show the button with you than ..
However, you should not use the Facebook Connect button than when accessing the ACP. This won't work, and I also will never make it work, for obvious security implications. (Again, normally no button should show up )
About the avatars. Safe mode is the way it should be! (off) Seen all this, I can't think of any probable other reasons why it wouldn't show the avatars..?
Are avatars in general enabled? Haven't you disabled the viewing of avatars in your UCP forum settings? Have you logged in via Facebook Connect or normal login to the forum?..
Thanks!! Happy 2010 to you too
Back to those avatars.... Could this be related to original FB connected profiles and me changing my web API key? I have the new API code and secret added to the board, so they are now re-connected (I reset it when these problems began, trying to resolve the issue).... I guess what I am asking is if this problem could be caused from the profiles that were already associated with FB using the old codes/keys before I changed it.
I'm at a loss!
Thanks so much!!
PS. I have tried unlinking and relinking my account, which didn't help, but there may be more to it than that.
