Solved Facebook app

Post by meresimp on August 8th 2014, 6:11 pm

Sorry if this Q has been asked before  Wink
 
I think this is a fantastic idea:
"Facebook Connect module allows users to register and connect easily to the forums with their Facebook account"


But I simply can’t figure out how to get it to work – can I find a tutorial some where?

 
It is a huge challenge to get my facebookfriends to move their a.. and visit my forum: http://vimaler.danskforum.net/

I thought I could make an app and put it on my community facebook site : https://www.facebook.com/meretemaler

so my friends easily could log into my forum.  Is that not so??

This is what caught my attention:

Facebook Connect module allows users to register and connect easily to the forums with their Facebook account. Your members can also invite their Facebook contacts to discover your forum. To do this, you must install the Facebook Connect API by following the steps below.






I am sorry but the link you provided did not help me …



Maybe I just have to give it up??

What exactly is the problem, you click on the link above the support forum link, you follow on the on screen instructions, instructed by Facebook and then it should be given an APP ID code, you then enter that and then activate Facebook Connect option in the ACP.

Also try taking a look here: http://help.forumotion.com/t73698-facebook-connect?highlight=Facebook

You have to create a Facebook app to use the Facebook Connect.  Facebook explains how to create a Facebook app.  After you create it, you enter the codes in your forum's administration panel.  Members before you activated Facebook Connect will have to associate their accounts.

I am trying and trying -.....
 
Keep getting this message: You App ID is not valid.
 

Obviously  I am doing something wrong Wink


EDIT:
Several  hours later 

I finally got the "connect button" on my page.

Now I need to understand  what you are saying about: Members before you activated Facebook Connect will have to associate their accounts.  ??

Members (before you activated the Facebook Connect) will have to go to their profiles and associate their accounts to use the Facebook Connect option.
