Upgrade Facebook SDK to v2

Post by tugatech on January 10th 2015, 10:49 pm

Hello,

I notice that Forumotion forums are still using the v1 of the Facebook SDK.

In April 30, 2015 the V1 of Facebook SDK will bediscontinued, and, at that time, the Facebook login and some share features in all the Forumotion website will stop working - https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/changelog

My suggestion is for the Forumotion team upgrade the Facebook SDK to the new version (v2.x). This will maintain the possibility of login/register with a Facebook account after 30/04/2015.

I think is something for the tech team check ASAP (before April at least). But lets see what the forumotion community says. Smile

Thanks

Yes, the 2.2 is the most recent version.
But, at least, any version above 2.x is acceptable...

And we are just a few weeks from the deadline... :wouhou:

Hello,

Appears that Forumotion doesn't care about this feature anymore...
Sad
And its sad, as almost ANY website today use some kind of social login...

The date is arriving and all the apps that have already upgraded to the V2 (will be mandatory to ALL in 30 of April) no more can use Facebook to register/login in ANY forumotion website:



Hope that Forumotion team check this before the feature gets decrepted...

@Michael_vx , check the Facebook changelog:https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/changelog

Forumotion websites are using the version "v1.0" of the Facebook SDK (dated fromApril 21, 2010 - 5 years ago! )
This can be seen in the javascript used by the Forumotion to the Facebook Login (Facebook Connect):http://illiweb.com/rs4/24/frm/ograph/fb_login.js or even in the use of the javascript "all.js".

The Forumotion is using old codes, like the "FB.Data.query" (that have been replaced by the FB.api in the new Facebook SDK versions).
In this example, the "FB.Data.query" is not available in any Facebook SDK version 2.x or above.

When the Facebook SDK v1.0 arrives to the "end date" (April 30, 2015), those queries will no long work... And, like that, the Facebook Connect will no longer work in ANY Forumotion forum!

Thats why is important to address this before the "end date" of the v1.0 (April 30, 2015)
But i think Forumotion are ignoring the Facebook Connect system.

I bet that, when the day arrives, most of the Forum owners will come here to ask for help in why the Facebook login system stop working...

I do not think that the Facebook log ins will exactly stop working. From what I read, they will request information when you first use them. The developers do say we should upgrade.

@SLGray, they will stop working.
Check my old message to see what is going to appear in the Developer Console after 30 of April:
http://help.forumotion.com/t138198-upgrade-facebook-sdk-to-v2#950168

The requests are not allowed anymore.
The FB.Data.query is used to fetch the info about the user (name,email,etc). This is notpresent in the v2.x.
So, when the version 1.0 gets decrepted, all the decrepted v1.0 requests will stop working and, like that, the Facebook Connect here will stop working (in login and registration).

Hi there,

Just to remember that is day 29...
One more day and Facebook Connect gone.

Also, @Buttercup , the problem is in the file "fb_login.js" -http://illiweb.com/rs4/24/frm/ograph/fb_login.js
Is not a problem of the Facebook/Facebook API, but instead is of the Forumotion team becouse is using outdated codes Wink

I was able of change the fb_login.js content to the new codes (and using in the forum changing the templates), and it works but only for the registation/fill form, and is very "beta stage".
The login part is something that need to be adapted from the server end and from the "fb_login.js" file... I can provide this javascript that i have adapted by PM if needed and if helps (contact me). Wink

Thanks and hope to see some resolution.
