Hi!
I love this mod but can't get it to work. I did two tests. For the first I edited all files manual and used another style. For the second I used auto mod.

The one with auto mod doesn't function at all. If I want to register with facebook and push the I Agree to these terms button I get

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare fb_language_select() (previously declared in /includes/functions_fb2011.php:32) in /functions_fb2011.php on line 46
If I go to facebook manager in the user control panel I get

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare fb_language_select() (previously declared in /includes/functions_fb2011.php:32) in /functions_fb2011.php on line 46
The manual edited test with an alternative style (Artodia Helion) worked better. Registration also broke (all registration, fb and old way):

Code: Select all

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /cache/tpl_art-helion_ucp_register.html.php on line 147
but linking existing accounts with facebook works and it also works to login with facebook.

as this style didn't have a ucp_register.html template I didn't edit it or add the code somewhere else.

It would be really cool if we could help get this to work. The style is wonderful and your mod is just the bomb!

Come on people. Please provide links to websites where the mod is installed!!! :)

@sanderh - in the acp Facebook for phpBB manager section there is a switch to turn the like button off and on.

It seems that your plugin is killing the ACP.

Whenever I try to install the plugin, I cannot seem to follow the additional instructions for setting up the tab on the ACP, and when I try to log out and log back in (to see if this will give me the step I cannot follow), the ACP itself gives me this error message:
[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/includes/functions.php on line 4592: require_once(functions_fb2011.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory
In particular, when I try to follow your instructions to create a FB2011 tab, the following part:
Now click on Facebook 2011 in the Administration Control Panel Module Management Window.
Then on the right side at the bottom. From the add module pull down list select Facebook 2011 Settings.
does not work because there is no entry in the list that says “Facebook 2011 Settings”. In the end, the only way to regain control of the ADM (once I log out and log back in to see if that provides me with this setting) is to copy the files in _backups and dump them back into the root of the site, overwriting anything that was altered upon install.

what i mean is, users turn on and of the like button.

I got some old-timers on the forum who doesn't have facebook. and just hate the button.
but the young ones do like it.
and i do think you did a marvelous job.

I have installed this mod on a sandbox version of my forum for testing purposes. It's connected to the same database as my live forum, so all posts are synchronized, but any changes to the sandbox code won't affect the usability of the live forum.

As others have noted, the Facebook login feature still doesn't work. Clicking on the login button sends you to the registration page. So I have disabled that feature for now. However, the Like button still works, with the caveat that the post on one's Facebook profile features the default phpBB logo instead of my forum logo. This must surely be an easy code fix.

I mentioned on your forum that I would be happy to beta test this mod, even if IE compatibility is not complete. Any idea when the beta will be released?

My test forum is at http://projectmw.com/sandbox/.

It seems there is some confusion over whether the existing software is being supported or if we should continue to wait for the new software to be released?

our forum has been waiting patiently for this new release, but it now seems that its further away than before. is it possible to get a clear ETA for this release, or are we better to work through installation errors with the previous release in order to get something functioning and take pressure off you to get the new release spot on?

Well for all the impatient people.
I am just letting you know that for the past two weeks, the kids and I have had whooping cough and we are still very sick.
So just be patient, I do not get paid to make this mod, so in my spare time I make progress. Fighting with IE while coughing ya lungs up is not something I feel like doing right now.
Please just wait a week or two for the new release.
Thank you :(

What could be wrong here ? No button in profile.. No login button on the main site.. weird..

Screens:

1: http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/4439/png2pih.png (options, to see if it's ok - it's turn on)

2: http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/2358/png1ga.png (no button here)

Version 3.0.10
All code modifications done without automod and similar software - only manually.
The AppId and the secret are good, and configured well - active of course.

Hi keitzy ofcourse we don't mind to wait a week or two longer. But most of us are afraid that each next week we will have to wait another week.

You might think that you aren't paid for this but be sure that if you get it working you'll get more donations than if you would have been paid in advance. Already a few other posters said they would donate if it works and I would do the same. This kind of mod is just to great to hide from the public. While we could hire someone to do it for us for a few hundred dollars everyone (you included) would be better of to give a few bucks and get it available for everyone. In the end that is the idea of open source no?

It seems phpbb mods are becoming less and less open source and more about hiring programmers. That's a shame...

Ok, I solved the problem. My mistake was a bad editing place for one modification in functions.php file.
Now I have a question about opengraph tags..

I am logged in on my board. Without logging in, there is no possibility to see any thread posts. That's my configuration. I have problem only with two tags:

Code: Select all

<meta property="og:title" content="{PAGE_TITLE}" />
<meta property="og:description" content="{SITE_DESCRIPTION}" />
{PAGE_TITLE} - should show the title of the page - unfortunately, it doesn't. Why is that ? Instead of this I see "Log in" when I use Facebook debugger (http://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug). This is for testing fb tags. It's weird, because even if I'm not logged in, I can see the thread name in the title bar of my browser.

I added my opengraph tags to my overall_header.html file.
There are also a <title> tags, which look like this:

Code: Select all

<title>{SITENAME} &bull; <!-- IF S_IN_MCP -->{L_MCP} &bull; <!-- ELSEIF S_IN_UCP -->{L_UCP} &bull; <!-- ENDIF -->{PAGE_TITLE}</title>
So it looks good, there is a {PAGE_TITLE} text, so it should work good - it seems there is the same part, but it's parsed or something.. so with the title tag it works great - with my opengraph, it's not.
Anyway, I would like to have here (in the opengraph <title> tag) my topic title, cause when somebody clicks on facebook link, should see earlier what the topic name is.

Im wondering where is the problem..

---

The second line of the tag with description - I need to put there for example first post description or if the link is a direct link to the post (is there a possibility after clicking on Like Button ?), the "liked" post description.

If anyone could help me or suggest sth, give advice... whatever.. I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance...
PS.sorry for my english..
