Hello,


This error means the app is offline or in testing/development mode. You need to turn the app to public/online. After this it should work. I had the same issue


You also may get an error if you try and login under the fb account you used to create the app for some reason. It happened with mine, but when I tested it on a seperate account it worked. That is how I know the system is working.

The tutorial for Facebook Connect is outdated.

See if this one helps:
How To Create the App ID & App Secret for Facebook Connect

Dear Members,
Facebook recently updated the method to create the App ID for facebook connect.

So we bring you the new way to create the App ID and to install this function properly in their Forumotion forums.

1. Creating App ID

First will access the following link: https://developers.facebook.com/app

Then we click the "Add a new App"



A New Window will appear...Select "Website"



If you have already created any App before,you can select a name it in the box to the center or write a new. If you have not yet created press "Skip and create App ID"



Then we must complete all the fields:



Display Name: You can write your forum name or any other name that you want. For Example:

FM App

*Namespace: You don't need to complete this field.
*Is this a test version of another app?: No
*Category: Choose the category that is your forum (Games,Health,etc).

Once you completed this fields, click on "Create App ID"

A "Security Check" will appear. You must follow the instructions and select the correct photos to continue.



When you have completed, press the "Submit" button.

2. Configuring the App

Now, you must be in the dashboard, right? We will go to the "Settings" tab



Press in the "Add Platform" button and then "Website"





It will appear a new space "Site URL", there we write the url of our forum Forumotion



Now, in the above fields we will complete them with the url of the forum, contact email, etc:



Once they are completed, press "Save changes"

The next step is to go to the "Status & Review" tab and make public our App so that users can use.



By clicking on the white button (Yes), we are asked to confirm and we give it.



If all went well, a "green circle" appears next to the name, which indicates that the app is ready to use.

As a final step, we go to the "dashboard" and copy the App ID and App Secret in our Administration panel:



Admin Control Panel > Modules > Social Networks > Facebook > Facebook Connect



And finally click "Save" and you done !

It could also be that its simply because your trying to login using the Facebook account you used to create the app, when I tried it from my personal facebook account which I used to create it, I got that same error. When I tried using a seperate Facebook account, it worked. Its probably the same case for you, its most likely workint, just not for YOU. Don't ask me why its like this, just seems to be. Ask someone else on your forum to try, I bet you it will work for them.

Yeah once I did that it seems to have fixed the issue, further testing on my part is still needed, so I am still not 100% sure though.
