Install and setup went perfectly smooth with one exception.

I already had an app set up so filled in the details for that but I did not have a page set up for it yet. So I left the page id blank, saved it and went and set up a page. Went back to setup to ad the the page id and got this error.

I got around this.

I did an adminzone search for "page". Facebook page id in setup came up and brought me directly to where I needed to go to add it and I am all set up now :)

Well done, that was the correct fix. The bug happens when the user/page ID option wasn't filled in, and it fails to auto-fill it. I'll update the addon package.

How does one change the forum post ratings to the like and dislike option as seen on these forums?

Please see View topic: How can I add ratings to forum topics and replies? - ocPortal.com

In the future, please either ask your question in an appropriate topic or create a new one. Your question has nothing to do with Facebook support and makes it hard to find for future reference as well and taking this thread off-course.

And 'Guest' should read the WHOLE thread as there appear to be several 'reasons' why the like/dislike feature doesn't show.

I also concur your second paragraph!

Oh come on Bob admit it you were abnormally abusive in that post as anyone can tell. Geez lighten up will you and don't be such an …. lol JK

It really is funny how some people can interperet text in different contexts sometimes. I think your please and response were quite polite and certainly a lot more polite than the reaction.

"abnormally abusive"? Opposed to what, "normally abusive"? :lol: Sorry, couldn't resist…

Actually, When I first read his response, I thought, "lighten up on the newbie, Bob", since his post had an aggressive stance compared to most of his informational posts. But now when I read it, it doesn't appear as aggressive as I first thought it to be. Bob's reply was direct and to the point.

Well we all know Bob is "normally abusive" so when his abuse level rises I guess that would be considered abnormal wouldn't it? hehe

Please, give it a rest guys. Bob has always been polite and respectful towards me. Lets not cruisify him for one post.

Bob has always been helpful and mostly respectful to everyone. He has done a lot for this forum and has sponsored (or helped sponsored) several new features. But, that doesn't mean we can't mess with him!  :thumbs:

It was late and the later it is, the more likely my answers are to be terse. I do wish I had made it sound more like a suggestion, but I certainly don't think I was rude or impolite.

I'd love to know if the suggestion at the link worked for our guest.

I really hope this works smoothly. I've been wanting to add reliable Facebook authentication for some time (and maybe Twitter and Google too). I get people asking about logging on with Facebook and think people are really starting to adopt single sign-on solutions.

Account link?

Avatar
Just installed this and its working great. The only thing i cant work out is the "Links to the Facebook profiles of ocPortal profiles logged in via Facebook Connect" feature.

My account is linked via facebook connect but i cant see where my profile is linked?

Avatar
Ah, that should not be mentioned in there, I'll have to remove that. We don't actually record a member's Facebook ID anywhere at the moment so we can't do it (we could, but we'd have to add a new database field for it).

I'd suggest adding a custom profile field and letting the members fill it in if they want to. v8 has such a field by default now, for new installs.

Avatar
Thanks Chris. I've added the custom fields as this wasnt a fresh install. Keep up the great work.

Bob - Just because you add the word "please" doesn't make your post polite. Don't be a dick.

I asked in this thread because I thought it was tied in somehow. Obviously I was wrong. "Thank you" for the link, however.
Avatar
Geez, I answered your question, suggested a better approach to getting answers and keeping topics on track  and didn't resort to name-calling.

What was that you were saying about being polite?

More importantly, did the suggestion at the link work for you?

LIKE - downloads

I have version 8.1.3.

How do I implement the "New Facebook 'Like button' block (linked into the main_screen_actions block by default)" so it'll also be in each download? I'd like each download the option to be LIKE'd.

Thanks in advance!

Do I need to hardcode it?

Just so you all know, I figured it out and hardcoded it into the DOWNLOAD_SCREEN.tpl

All I had to add was: {$BLOCK,block=main_facebook_like}

It's more fun when you play with it to figure things out. Good learning experience too.  :)

Getting critical error on this addon, does it work with 9.0.5?

What critical error precisely?

Did a quick check of this again, this is the comment topic for:
" ocPortal files (addons and releases) Addons Version 8.0 Third Party Integration Facebook support
"

So I presume the above poster installed an old version.

The v9 version should work correctly.


There are too many online users to list.
