Unknown.unkown users growing at an alarming rate

Unknown.unkown users growing at an alarming rate

Sorry to start a new post, but I wanted to see if this issue is happening to anybody else. It is rapidly spiraling out of control! I am getting a ton of users created with the username unknown.unknown_random number, and need to know what to do with them.

Since that post a few hours ago, when I had thirty users with the username unknown.unkown, have gotten 20 new users all with the username unknown.unknown ! What is going on? I am still getting proper user mapping for some users, so I know that the component has been partially working. I am also having no problems accessing my own account with facebook connect. Is this a spam issue? I just need to know what to do, delete these users or try to get some information from them. Please help!

My site is [url:b8nsbsed]http://www.rugbyunited.com[/url:b8nsbsed]

Thanks, sorry for the hassle.

Re: Unknown.unkown users growing at an alarming rate

Are you using 2.0.1?  This is a bug we intended to fix with that version.  Our demo site had the unknown.unknown users created on it before that release, and since 3/24, has not had any.

The main fix for this was in the /components/com_jfbconnect/controller.php file.  Look for this if/else block at line 44:
    else if (!$rawFbUserId)
    { # Facebook isn't returning information about this user.  Redirect them.
        $mainframe->enqueueMessage('We were unable to retrieve your Facebook account information. Please try again');
        JFBConnectFacebookHelper::logoutFacebookUser();
        $mainframe->redirect(JRoute::_('index.php'));
    }

If this is still an issue, this will be a very high priority, because it's not good what it's doing.  The unknown.unknown users can be deleted.  They have no user mapping, and are not 'real' users at all.  You can see more of a description in the other post you link to.

I also installed that new version of JFBLogin a few days ago, do you have any advice on upgrading the component so I don't override those changes? Thanks!

Re: Unknown.unkown users growing at an alarming rate

The new component install doesn't automatically install the JFBClogin component anymore.  It tells you that you should though, but in your case, you shouldn't current/smile

We wanted it to automatically install previously while we weren't in 'stable' condition to ensure everyone was on the same page.  Now we're trying to keep them separate so you can keep an older version of things if you don't want to upgrade.

I'd back up any files you've made modifications to first just in case...

OK, so just the usual then, uninstall JFBConnect component, install the new one, and it should retain all of my preferences, api keys, user map, etc? Thanks!

That's the plan current/smile  Let us know if it doesn't work how you expect, or, as always, if you have suggestions on how to improve the process.

Thanks, I should have read the instructions you already posted in the sticky thread. My bad! Installed the update last night and so far, so good!
