optimization - Facebook connect optimization! Empty Facebook connect optimization!

Post by Shadow January 18th 2011, 5:10 pm

Dear users,

In continuation of our efforts to offer intuitive, secure and cutting edge technology, we performed an optimization for option "Facebook Connect". That, in order to improve the functioning and security of your forums.

Now a new field in connection with this application and called "Secret Key" made its appearance in your admin panel> Modules>> Facebook Connect

If you are an administrator of the forum, two cases:

1. You have activated the system "Facebook Connect" on your forum: In this case, to retrieve your secret key, simply log on the facebook account with which you created the application and then go to the page " My Applications "and copy / paste the secret key corresponding to the application facebook connect you created for your forum.


2. You never activated the system "Facebook Connect" on your forum: in this case is very simple. The secret key is provided immediately after creating the application.


Note that in order to take advantage of this optimization, admins that have changed the template index_body must take into account the change below:

Replace :

Code:
onlogin=facebook_login()'

by :

Code:
onlogin=window.location='/facebook_connect.forum'

See you soon for fresh news!

Forumotion team

Sorry for the double post, but I've just installed it and see no significant changes. What does this update actually improve? Security? How?

It's an optimization for your security, you won't see any visible change.

As I'm no technician, I won't go into any technical details.

Well, appereantely there was a change made to the Open Graph and PHP SDK code Forumotion uses to connect to Facebook. Turns out if was possible to get into someone's account if someone (let's call him an 'expert', actually) knew how to; still, the platform is really secure.

Now with the secret API key, which by the way only YOU founder/admins should know, that's history. Unless they do get to know it (the only way would be giving it to them), the platform is safe and secure.

Now really an expert on Open Graph and SDK, so if someone who knows about it has a better explanation we'll be happy to hear. Very Happy

says it should look like this..

Note the difference in quotations marks.

I tried both ways and neither worked!

This means that you can not submit it to their directory until you meet their requirements. You can use the app without submitting it.

I did all of this - one thing - I put the code they gave me in a widget - where it looks great and members love it, but the lettering is flowing outside the table of the widget.

What can I do?

OKay, so I have been having trouble with facebook. I am the co-administrator of http://truebloodcouncil.forumotions.net/forum and I have a problem. I use my facebook page to update other members of my forum of new things going on the forum. Sunday night (FEB 6th) I changed the skins and overall appearance of our forum for our one year anniversary. When I tried to announce it on facebook and post the link to the site, facebook says my site has been reported as spam, which I know is impossible. If I have read the above thread correctly, this is because I changed the look of the forum. Can you tell me in dumb a$$ terms how to fix this? THanks bunches for helping out a techno weenie....

I try to create the APP and get this error.

URL must point to a directory (i.e., end with a '/') or a dynamic page (i.e., have a '?').

What am I doing wrong?

These questions are not meant to be rhetorical.... they just seems that way because I can not think of an answer.

So, I would appreciate help with questions!

Is problem caused by....Facebook connect optimization on http://easttnforum.forumotion.com/ ?
Or is the problem caused by my Facebook account?

Below is an image of the error...
