Facebook Connect Update

Post by SLGray on April 16th 2018, 4:37 am

Dear users, Since April 12, 2018, Facebook has updated its API by eliminating version 2.5, which requires an update of the Facebook applications that use it. If you have opted for an activation of Facebook Connect in your forum, you must update the Facebook application that you have created to continue offering your users an easy registration and login to the forum through this service. For that, nothing too difficult. Just follow these steps:

 1. Log in to the Facebook API account of your forum through this link: https://developers.facebook.com/

 2.Select your application from the "My applications" list at the top right of the page:
Example:

3. In the menu on the left of the Facebook page of your forum, go to the "Settings" menu and choose the "Advanced" submenu:
Example:




4. In the "Update API version" block, select version v2.12 of the menus corresponding to the options "Update all calls" and "Update calls for application functions".

Example:

Then save the changes through the button at the bottom of the page. From that moment, the API of your forum will be updated and your users will be able to continue using Facebook Connect to access their forum. Note that Facebook has automatically changed the API version of its application from 2.5 to 2.6 yesterday, but it is better to manually switch to v2.12 for added tranquility for you. For information, Facebook has adjusted its policy and some information that could be requested so far is no longer found when registering through Facebook Connect (birthday, city and website).
P.S.  It may be necessary to flush the browser cache to have the files updated in your browser.

And 1 more, by default Facebook Login is now require "must enforced secure HTTPS" - so you can't use this feature if you're running a free package.
