You're welcome to try to hack it in there.  The reason it's not a simple pasting of code is because we have different parameters for redirecting the user, javascript that must also be called, and some library functions from the JFBConnect component that we use as well.  Connecting and interacting with Facebook is pretty complex.  We'll see if we can make a more hybrid module or some other easier method for you to use.

As for the duplicate logout button, can you 'hide' that in the cblogin module to enable you to use both?

Thanks for sending the credentials, we're planning to do an investigation into this Wed or Thurs.  I know that's not speedy, but we want to make sure we set aside enough time, because it's obviously a big issue and doing it 'here and there' won't cut it.

We'll keep you posted to what we figure out!

Are you still getting this error?  We added Facebook and your site to our trusted list (in combinations of individual or both or none) and were never able to see this error.  We also tested with our demo page.

If you can help to narrow down when this occurs, we'll gladly look into it more.  If someone else is experiencing this, please let us know.

Hehe. Not sure what I'm testing against (new or old), but the error I see when I click the blue login-button is:
The Facebook Connect cross-domain receiver URL (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.jasonsfitkitchen.com/?fbc_channel=1#fname=_opener&%7B%22t%22%3A3%2C%22h%22%3A%22fbCancelLogin%22%2C%22sid%22%3A%220.919%22%7D">http://www.jasonsfitkitchen.com/?fbc_ch ... .919%22%7D</a><!-- m -->) must have the application's Connect URL (http://jasonsfitkitchen.com/) as a prefix. You can configure the Connect URL in the Application Settings Editor.

That's stating that the Connect URL is set for the non-www version of your site. In the Facebook application overview, it should say something like:
Canvas Callback URL
    <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.jasonsfitkitchen.com/">http://www.jasonsfitkitchen.com/</a><!-- m -->
Connect URL
    <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.jasonsfitkitchen.com/">http://www.jasonsfitkitchen.com/</a><!-- m -->
Base Domain
- Since you're probably not using subdomains, try leaving this blank for now. Shouldn't matter either way though.

Verify that, and hopefully something will stand out.

There's a conflict being created between the JFBConnect component and the "Fan Box" module you're using.  If you look at the source for your page, there are two FB.init API calls:
FB.Facebook.init("7ae6bbd31e3fd8ce58039e5aa4e562b4", "/index.php?option=com_jfbconnect&view=xdreceiver&format=raw");

The first is ours, the 2nd is the other module.  Facebook (to my knowledge) only lets you initiate one API key per page.  Can you update the keys to be the same and test?

I'm getting the cross-scripting error now.  It seems like your domain is always redirecting to www (which is good), but the callback URL is set to the non-www version.  Can you update your application with the correct callback and let us know how that goes.

By trying everything in the other thread, have you tried creating a new barebones Facebook app with just the setting from the user guide and used that API/Secret key?  That always seems to solve the issue, and usually points people in the right direction of which switch they flipped in the app that they shouldn't have.

The cancel/skip problem is something we can't do much about.  Facebook isn't 'shrinking' the window if you cancel, it leaves it wider.  Since we have no way to detect that skip is pressed, we can't re-shrink the div again.

If you can post your page (or PM it to us if you don't want it publicized), we can look at giving you some hints for updating the CSS so it should work on the right side.  We never thought about this, but good idea current/smile  We may include that as an option in a future release.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  I see the site is password protected again, so I'll offer what support I can here.

If no information is importing, check that you have no "Required" fields set in CB.  This causes issues if they're aren't being filled in by Facebook, and so CB doesn't properly save the profile.
Can you look in the images/comprofiler directory and see if any images in there are correctly being fetched from Facebook?

Please feel free to PM (----->) us a super admin account to your site and we can go in and take a look.

This is a great suggestion.  They do have some features we're looking to add shortly, and will likely be contacting the dev soon about collaboration with them.  Thanks for the tip!

We're working now to get a new release out next week to clean up some bugs and add some minor features.  While I don't think your requests will make it to this release, we definitely are trying for better CB integration and have this logged in a project manager.  We'll let you know, and certainly would love for you to test when we have something!

Yes, right now we only use username and password.  If you'd help me walk through how it should work with CB and JFBC, hopefully we can come up with something.

Ideally, I'm assuming you'd like it like this:

- New user comes to site and clicks on Facebook connect button
- On registration page, they enter email address, full name, and password (no username field)
- Account is created
- On return, they use their email and password to log in

Let me know and we'll look into it further.  There's a few issues with CB that we're looking to clear up in the future.  It works in about 90%+ of people's needs now (from feedback we've received), but would obviously like to increase that.


bjorn190 is likely correct.  Additionally, we've set up a new Problem Solving FAQ-like post which we'll be updating as more questions like this arise.  We're sorry for the confusion and hope this helps.  Please let us know if you have any other issues, and we'll do what we can to help you resolve them.

Which problem in particular?  We believe all functions are working as best as Facebook will allow us to.  We definitely recommend reading the Facebook Wiki link below and testing on our demo page prior to purchase to ensure it seems like it's working for your needs.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://facebook.sourcecoast.com/">http://facebook.sourcecoast.com/</a><!-- m -->

Not off the top of my head, that's a new error to us.  Can you give your site name so we can look at the html output to see if the API key is being inserted in there correctly?

Also, make sure that you've checked your domain redirects in case that's causing a problem (basically, you need to make sure that <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.yoursite.com">www.yoursite.com</a><!-- w --> and yoursite.com go to the exact same page as your callback url)
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.php?f=38&t=102&rb_v=viewtopic">http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.ph ... =viewtopic</a><!-- m -->

Still would love to have an account to test with on someone's site.  We're gentle, we promise.

When I go to your page, I'm getting the cross-domain receiver error when I click the login button.  Please ensure you read this message as well:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.php?f=38&t=102&rb_v=viewtopic">http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.ph ... =viewtopic</a><!-- m -->

When I go to your domain without the www, I'm seeing your site pop up in the log in window (no FacebookRestClientException error).  The cause of this is almost always a mis-configuration of the Facebook application itself.  We'd recommend going through this thread which has some advice on how to correct the issue:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.php?f=38&t=380&rb_v=viewtopic">http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.ph ... =viewtopic</a><!-- m -->

There's a bit of code you'd need to implement.  We've tossed around the idea of making a plugin to put a Login button anywhere in a template (not just a module), and may revisit that soon.

The other option I'd recommend is placing the JFBCLogin module directly under your CBlogin module.  Turn off it's title and set the "Show login form" to "Hide".  This will only show the button and it may look like part of the CBLogin module (depending on your styles)

We can't tell you how happy that makes us.  It took a while, but we're glad you're up and running now!

Glad to hear this helped.  Marking it as Fixed

The post below seems similar to yours, and I noticed you have a similar issue on your site.  In essence, you need to ensure that your domain has only one base domain.  Right now, both of these sites go to the same place, but in Facebook's eyes are 'different' sites.  This is likely what's causing your issue:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.beltminer.com/Joomla">http://www.beltminer.com/Joomla</a><!-- m -->
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://beltminer.com/Joomla">http://beltminer.com/Joomla</a><!-- m -->

Post where user has this fix:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.php?f=38&t=403&rb_v=viewtopic">http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.ph ... =viewtopic</a><!-- m -->

We have some simple directions to set up a redirect for your site to either use www or non-www.  Please try these and test.  Whatever option you choose, ensure that your Facebook application uses the same base domain name.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.php?f=38&t=102&rb_v=viewtopic">http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.ph ... =viewtopic</a><!-- m -->

No, right now it doesn't.  We're working on adding some functionality to update a wall, but it won't be fully automated and we don't have the timeline for it right now.

Can one of you PM us a super admin account to your site so we can get on and debug where this error is coming from?  It's confounded us for too long, but it affects a very small amount of users so it's hard to diagnose.

Can someone please provide a page so that we can inspect the code and debug further?  It's working on our test and demo sites without a problem.  Facebook pushes out new code on their end every once in a while and that can cause problems, but it's impossible to debug if we can't recreate it.


Usually the main reason for the Facebook button to not appear is due to the Mootools scripts not being loaded.  Can you try going to the default rhuk template (temporarily) and see if it loads there?  Either way, please provide a sitename, and we should be able to help you to further debug this issue.

Can you PM us information login information to the backend of your site so we can investigate further.  I'm unsure where that black box is coming from.

What SEF are you using, built in Joomla or another component (it should work either way).  When you say "When its on the pages aren't being called, what pages?  What happens?
