Upon new subscription or login

There is an issue with Facebook authentication and Joomla 3.8.4. We believe we've localized and fixed the issue and will have a release out over the next day or so to fix. If you'd like us to implement the changes on your site, please Private Message us FTP credentials and we'll get you going. We're performing further testing on our end to validate the changes, but more tests on actual user sites is welcome to ensure the fix does what we expect it to do.

You can PM me by clicking the mail icon under my name to the left.

Thanks,
Alex

You should add that code into your template's default.css (or whatever file it uses for overrides). If you add it there and it still doesn't work, let me know a URL we can test at to see what's going on.

Thanks,
Alex

profaders - Thank you for the credentials. I applied the fix to JFBConnect and tested to make sure everything work as expected. With the 'Show login credentials in popup' to either Yes or No, Facebook authentication seems to work.

Please test to make sure you don't have any issues or run into any other problems, but I don't think you should. We'll be releasing an update to JFBConnect over the next few days that has this fix in it as well, but it's nice to have testing on more sites ahead of time.

Thanks,
Alex

Jari,
Disabling the Language Filter plugin did it for you? Glad to hear that got you going. A more complete fix will be available soon, but glad to hear that temporary measure works. Of course, if you're not using the language filter plugin, then no big loss either way.

Thanks,
Alex

We believe we've narrowed down and fixed the issue with Joomla 3.8.4. It's a combination of issues with updates to URL generation for SEF, the language filter plugin and a few other things. If you aren't using the Language Filter plugin, you should be able to disable it while leaving SEF URL's enabled and that should fix things for your as well.

If you need a fix ASAP, please PM me FTP credentials for your site and we'll gladly make the code changes necessary for you to test out. Otherwise, there will be a new release of JFBConnect very soon that should resolve this.

Joomla 3.8.4 is a security update, and we recommend moving to it, though the 4 security issues are rated as 'Low'.

Error Login after update to 3.8.4
Category: JFBConnect

Joseph,
Thank you so much for sending FTP access. We investigated thoroughly on your site and believe we have found and fixed the issue for you. We're going through manual and automated tests on our development sites to ensure the issue is fixed and doesn't cause any unexpected behavior, but so far, it's looking good.

Please test on your site and let us know if you see any issues. We'll be rolling out an update very soon with this fix for everyone, but would love to hear any feedback from you ahead of time.

Thanks,
Alex

We're looking at an authentication issue that is occurring with Joomla 3.8.4 and some social networks. That may be the cause of Facebook failing on your site.

However, the Yahoo error is strange and not one we've heard of. The block of code at line 60 in the file noted should look like:

Code:

                       $openid_data = array_intersect_key(

                            $payload_array,
                            array_flip([       <------------ This is line 60
                                'given_name',
                                'family_name',
                                'birthdate',
                                'email',
                                'email_verified',
                                'locale'
                            ])
                        );

Can you open that file and verify you have a similar block of code in your file? If so, please make sure there aren't any strange characters or anything else out of the ordinary in that file. If that checks out, please let us know what version of Joomla and PHP you are using so we can investigate that issue further.

Thanks,
Alex

Claire,
It's not you. It's (likely) us. We're receiving a few reports from users that Joomla 3.8.4 is having issues on some sites with Facebook login features. We can't recreate this, but are trying very hard to do so.

If you can Private Message us admin credentials to Joomla and FTP access to your site, we'll gladly dig in deeper to diagnose and fix whatever is going on. We want to knock this problem out before other users report it as well. If you can't, we've asked a handful of other users for access as well. Someone will come through current/smile

Thanks,
Alex

Wow, you use the JFBCQuote widget? I wasn't sure anyone did. That's awesome to hear. Very good to hear about things that I didn't think got too much use actually being taken advantage of. You made my night current/smile

All the best,
Alex

We're starting to hear some reports from users having issues with Facebook authentication using Joomla 3.8.4. We are unable to recreate the problem on local development sites, though we're continuing to try.

If possible, can you Private Message us Joomla administrator and FTP credentials so we can debug and fix the issue on your site? You can PM my by clicking the mail icon under my name to the left.

Thanks,
Alex

Error Login after update to 3.8.4
Category: JFBConnect

Milad,
I can recreate the issue on your site, but we're unsure what's actually causing it. There are other reports of issues with Facebook authentication with Joomla 3.8.4, but we've been unable to recreate the problem on our development sites.. though we're trying hard.

Can you Private Message me FTP and Joomla admin credentials to your site so we can investigate further? We'd like to get to the bottom of this as soon as possible, but are continuing to try to recreate locally as well.

You can PM me by clicking the mail icon under my name to the left.

Thanks,
Alex

Hayward,
I can't find the Facebook Login feature on your site. I'm assuming you disabled it temporarily while you were having this issue.

Jari,
I just tested on your site and was able to authenticate, choose a subscription, logout and then log back in using Facebook. Have you changed anything?

I'm trying to understand the behavior that's causing the problem, but so far, we're unable to recreate the issue on our development site. If you are still having the issue, please try changing the "Show 'Login Credentials' in popup" and try again to see if either Yes or No works for you? That may be a temporary solution if it does and will help us narrow things down either way.

Thanks,
Alex

Are you using a 3rd party extension for SEF URLs or Joomla's default SEF functionality? There's no reason that should be required to be turned off, but knowing what setting fixes things certainly helps narrow things down. Most sites that use JFBConnect leave SEF functionality on, so you should definitely be able to too.

One question though.. can you double-double-triple check that it wasn't the caching that was also part of the problem? Caching is tricky because even if you disable it, your browser may have received a cached page and won't get the notice to not use it. Please try disabling caching once more and clear your browser cache, close your browser, etc and just make sure we're not going down the wrong path by focusing on SEF.

Thanks,
Alex

Good luck in your hunt current/smile Glad to hear everything else is going well. Those are good looking posts. Nice to know JFBConnect is doing it's job!

Thanks,
Alex

Your site is using JCH Optimize which compresses and changes the Javascript quite a bit. That's not a bad thing, but it prevents our automated tool from properly scanning your page.

I just manually checked the things that the Error Check tool normally would and I can't see any issues on your site. If you're experiencing functional problems, please let us know what they are and we'll gladly help you fix those.

Thanks,
Alex

I can't tell you specifically which extension is adding it, but the code that's causing that warning is:

Code:

<script>(function(d, s, id) {

      var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
      if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
      js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
      js.src = 'https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.11';
      fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
    }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>

That's being placed directly under the JFBConnect inclusion of a similar bit of Javascript. I don't know which of the above plugins may be adding that, but know what you're looking for should make it easier to disable and check quicker to see if the code goes away. Once you find the extension, see if there's a way to disable inclusion of the Facebook Javascript library.

I hope that helps get you going,
Alex

I just tried to register with Facebook and am seeing the same behavior. That's not a normal problem and there's no 'fix it' button I can offer. However, here's the things I'd suggest trying to disable to narrow down where the problem is coming from. If you disable something and things start working, we can help you re-enable that feature.. this is just to narrow things down and find the culprit:
* Disable all caching in the Joomla - Global Configuration area
* Disable the System - Cache (or Page Cache) plugin
* Disable any other caching or optimization extensions/plugins you have enabled
* Disable SEF URLs

Try disabling them all and, if it works, re-enable them one by one to figure out which specific area is the problem.

I hope that helps get you going, but please let us know anything you find.

Thanks,
Alex

If it's not working using the popup method, that means one of the following:
* You have a popup blocker that's preventing the login pop from showing
* You have a 'tracking' blocker that's trying to prevent Facebook from tracking you, but also prevents a lot of their social features, like login.

Again, please try from various browsers and especially from ones you haven't setup with different add-ons that may add privacy features.

I hope that helps,
Alex

Cannot place multiple Facebook/Twitter buttons on the same line
Category: JFBConnect

Button styling can not be tweaked in the parameters. Each social network generally sets the styles for their buttons and outside of what we offer, there isn't much that can be done there.

With that said, the SCFindUs module uses images and a stylesheet to show the buttons. Those are just links to each social network, so it's not under each social network's control how those buttons look. You can change out the images or add rounding to each image via the CSS file. To see either, look in the /modules/mod_scsocialfindus/assets directory.

I hope that helps explain, but if you need anything else, please let us know.

Thanks,
Alex

I finally upgraded to the latest Joomla and the latest JFBConnect and new articles are now share...
Category: JFBConnect

Not intending to make you go in circles current/smile

The Open Graph - Content plugin is what is inserting the open graph image tag and making that work. However, the default of the Open Graph - Content plugin is to set the og:description tag to the first words of the article. Knowing that disabling it changes the behavior helps us understand things quite a bit.

I know you mentioned you created a new Custom Object. I think that's the way to go. You'll want to create a new Content - Article object and set it to the "Root" category. In the settings side, set the description to come from the Meta Description. That should do what you're looking for and apply it to all articles on your site. Test though and let us know how that goes.

Thanks,
Alex

The SCLogin module has an option to show any Joomla Menu you have configured. To do what you're looking for, create a new Joomla Menu in the admin area and add all the menu items to it that you'd like to display. Then, in the SCLogin module, configure the User Menu option to select the menu you'd like to appear for users that are logged in.

I hope that helps, but if you need anything else, please let us know.

Thanks,
Alex

I just tried with Facebook and got the message "Facebook profile successfully connected." in the green box above your forums. My account looks like it was created properly and everything is good.

Can you check if you have any tracking add-ons for your browser enabled that may be blocking Facebook activity? If not, please try from another browser or other ways to see if it's repeatable everywhere or just in specific browsers/computers.

Thanks,
Alex

I don't know what browser you're using, but can you try to open the Developer Tools.In the "Network" tab, hit "Preserve Log". Then try to login.

If it fails, check the Network tab and see if any requests are marked with 400 (or higher) error codes. If so, let us know what those URLs are.
Then, in the Javascript Console console, check if there are messages or other error messages that may be related to our Javascript check to see if the user has 2FA enabled.

One other thing to check is in the Global Configuration area of Joomla. Set the Error Reporting setting to 'None'. While I don't know of any PHP warnings or errors our check causes, if some other extension is causing a PHP message to be thrown, that could prevent our code from executing properly.

I hope that helps, but if not, please let us know.

Thanks,
Alex
