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

Thanks for posting that Very Happy

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

Sorry I misread the post.
