Few issues

Few issues

After installing the extensions there seems to be a few issues I am having, wanted to know if anyone could give me any incites or work arounds.

1. On the invite friends part, the "skip" button when clicked takes you away from the site to facebook where you get an error message;

"The page you requested was not found.
You may have clicked an expired link or mistyped the address. Some web addresses are case sensitive."

Anyway to disable the button or even change what it does?

2. Is there anyway to not have it log you out of facebook when you log out of the site?

3. Sometimes it seems to get caught in a redirect loop (not sure if it is this extension specifically).

Any help would be much appreciated.
Cheers

Make sure you have set the "Post Invite URL" properly in the module settings.  This should be a full path (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.blah.com/xxxx">http://www.blah.com/xxxx</a><!-- m -->) to where users should be sent after they invite, or cancel the invitation to their friends.
The thread below (SourceCoast post towards the bottom) also explains how to change the text of the "Skip" button or possibly hide it.

2. Is there anyway to not have it log you out of facebook when you log out of the site?
Not really.  If you wanted to make some modifications to the mod_jfbclogin module, I could help you remove the code to do this, but we don't think it's something most admins would want.  Facebook recommends that you log out of both sites for security purposes, and so we implemented it this way.  If you just wanted to log out of the Joomla side, any JFBConnect/Facebook Connect enabled modules would not recognize that the user is logged into Facebook.. they expect the user to be logged into both the Joomla and FB side.

3. Sometimes it seems to get caught in a redirect loop (not sure if it is this extension specifically).
There has been issues with this in the past, but we think we've got them all.  If you can give a rundown of events that you've seen cause this, we'll be happy to investigate further.

Re: Few issues

1. Sorted, must have just not saved it.
2. Will have a play about with the code later, I am not too fussed about the if you are logged into facebook it auto logs you into my site, but that can wait for the time being as it is only a minor problem.

3. I emptied my cache, went into admin, re-enabled the JCFBinvite and login modules.

Immediately when I go to homepage I get the redirect error. (logged into facebook and site)
Repeat test logged into facebook, not into site. Redirect Error
Repeat test logged out of facebook and site. Redirect Error

I completely reset safari, go back to the site, it loads fine.
Attempt to use the connect to facebook option - Redirect Error

If I disable both modules I get the following:
Username and password do not match or you do not have an account yet. (34 times)
You were successfully logged back in using your Facebook credentials. (35 times)

I got a few other people to test it, sometimes it works perfectly fine sometimes it won't even load the homepage at all and I have managed to log in using the connect system, displays my profile picture without any errors.
Suffice to say it seems to be occurring more frequently than I first thought.
Any ideas?

Re: Few issues

Just a quick bump, I really think the issue is in the part checking whether you are signed into facebook or not.
It seems that the minute you are signed into facebook before the site it causes this redirect error.

Any help on fixing it or a work around?
Also, I have decided to scrap my problem 2, I think it would be a good idea to keep fb and site login linked.

Thanks in advance.
