Facebook Welcome Message Hack?

Solved Facebook Welcome Message Hack?

Post by huskyadmin on May 23rd 2014, 10:15 pm

I have a weird problem that I can't seem to figure out.  We have a welcome message on our forum (as most forums do).  When I log into the admin panel, it shows the welcome message as I wanted it (although the formatting is very different).  However, users aren't receiving this message.  Instead, they get a facebook-related message.

Here's what they used to get (how it should be formatted):


Here's how it looks in Admin with the formatting off:


Here's what they get:


Is there some hack/virus that is going around?  Nothing else seems off.  None of my other Admins did it-- and with the message appearing as I'd want in the admin panel, I wouldn't think it was them.  I'm a little stumped...Help?

This does seem odd.

Can I ask if you've got Facebook Connect enabled on your forum? (Found ACP --> Modules --> Facebook Connect)

Could you also provide your forum link?

I do have connect enabled.  I guess I would assume it's from that, right?  But the better question is why?  LOL.

I registered on your forum via facebook and I got the welcome message that mentions facebook. I'm going to assume here its perhaps part of the deal when you have facebook login enabled.

Its not a hack so don't worry. Like I said its perhaps something FM and Facebook have worked out or it could be part of the T&C's of using facebook login.

I've also sent you a private message on here with a request.

Hi, i really can't see the date on the image clearly, so let me just ask this thing:
- Before you edit the Private message for new members on your Admin Panel, is that "facebook" related thing written on it?
- If yes, then could the message you seen on your sentbox probably an old message?
- If no, then probably this is a bug. Let us wait for other staff to confirm this.

I don't believe it is a bug, I believe it is part of the using the facebook connect.

My bad, yeah, it is actually.
Anyway, go to Admin Panel > Modules > Social Networks > Facebook Connect:
- Activate friends invitation message :
Hello Guest,

Welcome on this forum, feel free to invite your facebook friends to participate!

Regards,
Admin

Just change the message, things will be well.  Hello

Mark:  That is for the administrators to use.  That does not effect the welcome message.

Sorry I misread the post.
