I have created a facebook page and then copied the api and secret key thing to my ocportal website and nothing happens, I am wondering if my facebook page should update with new content from my website or is it the other way round or does it just mean that people can log into my site with their facebook login details.

Thanks.

As I recall from the FB add-on, it allows log-in and syndication of new and events to FB, and there is also a special block available to display your FB stream on ocPortal. That's what I think I remember. v8 provides a few extra goodies (new blocks) I think (when it is released).

i checked the search and only found people talking about the two addons, i never installed anything extra I just noticed while setting things up that you could add a facebook app but it said that pages and groups work too.

I created a new facebook page and added the required info needed by ocportal.

I have noticed that when I add content to my site there is no mention of it on facebook page and also adding to facebook page there is nothing that is added to my website.

I will have a look at these blocks, and can't wait for v8..

I still cant believe that this platform is free..

Its true that htere are still good people out there.

Remember that the syndication is only done for news and events. So, for instance, a forum post or a catalog or gallery entry will not be syndicated.

This is also true in v8 although there are some improvements:
View topic: [v8] Someone's been busy... - ocPortal

From my playing around with v8, it is a major improvement touching many areas. As always, Chris is making sure that ocPortal is at least a step and one-half ahead of other CMSes.
