Where'd it go?

In ocPortal 7, I had seen an addon for facebook integration. I have reinstalled with the 8, and that addon is no where to be seen? I would like to use facebook register/login on my site. My questions are,
1) Will we have that ability?
2) When will it be possible?

You need to uninstall the v7 add-on in the Manage Add-ons screen. You should probably run the upgrader (in the Tools menu) and do a File integrity check – check the list of alien files to make sure anything that says Facebook is removed.

Then go back to Manage Add-ons (Structure->Add-ons) and scroll to the bottom and click the link to "Import third-party addon". Expand the "Third party integration" category and select "Facebook support" and then click the button at the bottom. Afterwards, check for the add-on in Manage add-ons making sure it says v8 (I think, but it might be v1) and that it shows as installed. I believe this will put Facebook as an option to join and log in.

I am recalling this from testing the beta, but after this you need to go to Setup->Facebook and set up the Facebook integration. There are also some new blocks available to place on pages that integrate Facebook feeds and followers (again, this is from memory). Someone else will be able to give you more information.

Let me know how this works for you as I plan to use it on my site after I upgrade.

Thanks a heap! Didn't realize I had to import. That explains why I couldn't find it. May add the twitter integration too now!

It works awesome Bob, I have it going on a few sites now.

I make use of it on this site too. It is a great way to help promote ocPortal. Every post I make or like here is sent to my news feed and posted to my timeline.

Nice. I thought I remembered you saying you have it working. Once question, does it post only to the Facebook profile or can it also post to a Facebook page?

Glad to hear it worked out for you. ocPortal is full of nice touches here and there. It seems I am always finding a new feature or possible use case.

It will post to a page as well although if you have syndication enabled for activity on the admin account it posts to that users profile instead of the page that you have configured in site settings.

If a member wants their activity sent to facebook it needs to be given permission, it is not enough just logging in with facebook. If you check out the activities tab in your profile you will see it.

I just had a look at the source for your site and it says you are using version 7.1.6 of ocPortal?

Can't hurt to try. If that doesn't work I'm not sure what to tell you without logging in as admin myself and digging into it.

Thanx Brian,
I'll try that first (after I back up the site)
I'm sure you have better things to do then dig through my stuff, Offer is much appreciated though.

If you're stuck and can't get it I don't mind helping. I can't devote a bunch of time but I have done it enough times now that hopefully I can figure it out in short order. All it will cost you is a like on my facebook page ....my services don't come cheap, but I help out when I can lol

I did what I suggested and it didn' t work and now I noticed that im missing some of my catalogs ( super-members projects being one of them and I can't get it back!). I think this may be a bigger issue than I anticapated. I may have to do fresh install…(:

You still get a like from me though :)
