JFBConnect v4.2.5 Bug-Fix Release Available

JFBConnect - Facebook for JoomlaThe newest version of JFBConnect, v4.2.5, was just released. This update fixes some minor bugs that certain configurations of JFBConnect may run into.

Bugs fixed include:

  • Enabling auto-login can prevent email notifications or Alpha User Point rewards on new Facebook Likes or Facebook Comments.
  • Permission requests on login can be incorrect for certain fields imported from Facebook.
  • Password length was not properly checked during registration, allowing users to register with very short passwords.

For all of the changes, see the full JFBConnect changelog. While the update is not required and may not affect all users, we always recommended you use the latest version to ensure the smoothest operation for your Facebook integration.

Facebook has begun sending out notices to Facebook Application administrators that v2.0 of the Graph API will be deprecated on August 8, 2016. The message can be a bit cryptic on it's own. It's very difficult to know what it means when you're using an extension like JFBConnect for integration, since it's supposed to mask you from the inner workings of Facebook integration for Joomla. If you're confused, concerned or just curious, read our blog post to understand what the message means and what you need to do. https://lnkd.in/e8Uiikf
