Please help explain the setup

Please help explain the setup

Hey Guys-
   I must be missing something here. I just purchased all the JFB connect items; component and both modules. I got an api key and put it into the parameters. I am running joomla1.5.9. When I am logged into facebook and my site, and I hit the facebook connect button I get a redirect to nowhere. Do I have to create an app which allows for the connection, or should it be allow a connection and mapping users from their account on my site to their facebook accounts. Can you please help me on this.

thanks

Re: Please help explain the setup

Ensure that you're callback url setup in your Facebook application account is absolutely correct.  That means that it's http instead of https and does or doesn't include the 'www', depending on how your site is used.

Right now, when you're connected with your Joomla user, if you connect via Facebook login, you're accounts will be mapped together, which allows modules to 'know' the Joomla user that is connected to the Facebook account, or vice versa.  The actual mapping can be seen in the Usermap tab in the backend.

We're also working on a new release that will be out shortly that will help to verify your API settings more easily as well as having more enhanced connectivity features (such as creating Joomla users and logging into the Joomla site via your Facebook account).

Please let me know if there's any other questions I can help answer.

Thanks for the reply.....I anxious to get this working. Like you I use jomsocial, and the possibilities are exciting. Here are my questions. Do I need to write a connect app in order to make this work? What should my callback url be?

Thanks current/big_smile

OK....I think I figured it out. I don't need to write an app, I just need to put in my site address as the callback URL. Cool...... current/wink
