The link on your page works, and the section of code you pasted here looks right.  Nice work, and good luck!

We're receiving them.  Are you sure your not sending them to users who have a Facebook account?  If so, I believe Facebook intercepts them and turns them into normal 'invites' on their page.

Also, are you using a club template or something that we can get more information about?


It depends on the template to determine where it can be placed.  I couldn't find it on your site (and the beta.donicethings.com site seems to be down).  Can you send a link and I'll see if I can figure out some code to help you out.

There's no safety features that should do this.  I just created an account on your site and will try to login periodically to see if I get 'banned' or whatever is happening, but not seeing it now.

Have you deleted any users in the user admin or deleted any mappngs in the JFBConnect Usermap tab?  I'm unsure why you'd be seeing this.  If you figure anything out (scenerios that force it to happen, solutions, etc), keep us posted.

The code depends on how you want it styled and what community software you may or may not be using.  For example, you can look in the mod_login file and see the following lines:
            <a href="<?php echo JRoute::_( 'index.php?option=com_user&view=reset' ); ?>">
            <?php echo JText::_('FORGOT_YOUR_PASSWORD'); ?></a>

Where are you getting that error?  On your site, in Facebook?

From the jdundon post, did you follow this:
The way to fix my problem is to add the url I want to direct facebook invitees to upon confirming my application to the "invite content url" field of the module parameters. Perhaps a simple update to the tooltip for this parameter would prevent this issue for other users (unless it was only me <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarrassed" /><!-- s:oops: --> ). Please consider changing it.

Make sure that all the URLs in the JFBCInvite module are properly set.  Finally, if nothing else works, please provide your page so we can see if we see anything out of whack.

We can't answer every question within 1.5 hours.  Sorry if that's your expectation for support, but for a $20 component, that's infeasible.  We do respond as quickly as we can, but reasonable expectations must be maintained.  If you think we should add a 'urgent support' option for paid support, we'd be happy to look into it.

As for your issue, when I log in using Facebook, I'm brought to a page that says "Ihre Angaben ändern".  I don't know what it means, but it's not the error your reporting.  Can you explain how to recreate the issue more thoroughly?

Finally, I see you're using Community Builder.  If you have any configurations which require email authentication or admin approval, please turn them off for now.  We have a version coming soon that will support CB, but it's not available yet.

Can you provide your site information so I can take a look-see?  Also, what browser are you using?

This is a new error to us (slightly different than above).  It's also mentioned in the thread below, but that user said it went away on it's own.  It's possible Facebook itself was having a bad day, but if you're still seeing it, we'll happily investigate.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  The only error I'm seeing now is the object is null problem, which is pointing at the following line in the TitleTicker javascript module: line 71 "child.id = "currentChild";"

Definitely not a JFBConnect error, but hopefully helps you start looking for the issue.  As for the problem you're mentioning below, there was a bug in an oooold version of JFBConnect that threw a similar error.  Haven't seen it in months, which is good, and don't know why it would fix itself.

Don't know what more to say, but if it starts again or if you run into other issues, let us know.

The test release is almost complete.. 1-2 days and it will have CB support and another feature highly requested around here.  We'd love people to test it, report back any problems, and then we'll try to get a full release-quality version out next week with fixes.

We're excited, and I'll post here when it's out since we won't be updating the 'current' version number in the app since it will be a test version.

As for the authentication API in CB.. yes, they have it.  That's not really the problem though.. they don't have a 'user creation' API that's fully customizeable the way we need.  We think our solution is good, but it will definitely need some testing and will certainly break in some conditions.. we just need to know those conditions to fix them (it's impossible to flip every switch in CB and test).

If you could PM me your site info (admin login/password), that would greatly help us to debug this issue.

We have a new (TEST) release coming out this week some nifty new features.  Hopefully we can incorporate any bugfixes we find into a full release that's scheduled for next week.

Thank you for you PM! I logged into your site and was able to determine that there is a bug in Facebook's PHP API.  There is a library called 'curl' which is intended to get information from other websites.  Unfortunately, this is disabled on your site (not common).  Facebook has a fallback method for sites with it disabled and they forgot to return an important value, which is why your Facebook information was flaky at best.

Once this was fixed, I found another bug with importing avatars into JomSocial when curl is not available.  They've both been fixed on your system, and will be included in all future releases (the next should be ~mid next week).

If anyone else is experiencing this, and it's urgent to fix, send me a PM and we'll get you fixed up (more testers are good).  If you can wait a few days, just wait for the next release.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

I deleted your unknown users, so you should be able to start with a clean slate now.  Apologies for not catching this sooner, and thanks for the login information to catch it!

Finally, for now, I wouldn't worry about the .htaccess file.  That's only important when there are multiple ways to reach your domain (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.toldiandco.com">http://www.toldiandco.com</a><!-- m --> AND <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://toldiandco.com">http://toldiandco.com</a><!-- m -->).  On your dev site, the only method to reach your site is (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://dev.toldiandco.com">http://dev.toldiandco.com</a><!-- m -->).  When you move to the live site, if you can't get the htaccess file working then, you know where to post current/smile

There's the comments module (not developed by us, but a good piece of software) that lets' users put comments on your pages which also go back to FB.  There's no method to post articles to Facebook currently, but there are ways to do that.  We're investigating new features to add, and this is on the radar, but not being worked on currently.

This post will helpfully explain your issue.  If you have any more questions about this, please post there to consolidate questions.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.php?f=38&t=112&p=466&hilit=blog&rb_v=viewtopic#p466">http://www.cmsmarket.com/forum/index.ph ... topic#p466</a><!-- m -->

That configuration example is unique to the demo page (facebook.sourcecoast.com).  You would want your domain name in there, and do not need the 'facebook.' portion if that's not part of your url.

Likely, the callback url should be (for you): <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.toldiandco.com">http://www.toldiandco.com</a><!-- m --> or <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://toldiandco.com">http://toldiandco.com</a><!-- m -->.

Please make sure you read the below post and have your server setup correctly to redirect to www or non-www
<!-- 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 -->

It should do it automatically, but there are time depending on Facebook and the server configuration where you actually have to reload the page once for the auto-logging in to work.  Also, the Facebook Login module must be published on the page you are using.  We're looking into resolving the first issue, but do try going to facebook.com and then going to a page with the login module and then refreshing that page.

If it still doesn't log you in, let us know.  Heck, even if it does, let us know.  Again, we're trying to improve it so it works everytime.

What method are you using to send emails?  Is this inviting a friend directly (clicking on their picture) or using the "Invite by Email Address" feature at the bottom?

Some people are confused that when you do the first (inviting people already on Facebook) that it sends it to their Facebook home page as a notification and does not send an email.

If you still have issues, try it on our demo page and see if you still experience issues and let us know.

We're looking into a few issues that have been reported on IE8.  We'll keep you posted as we figure them out, unfortunately, some seem to be an artifact of how Facebook Connect functions, and will require fixes on their end..  We will fix what we can though.

No.. do you have a website you can point us at?

Also, what user components are you using?  JomSocial, Community Builder, none?  What's the user registration configuration in those.. is there a min username configuration that you've set?

More information about your configuration would greatly help us to assist you.

The current implementation imports avatars and fields, and functions just like JomSocial.

The plugins do matter, and is where we're hung up a little right now.  The current implementation has JFBConnect creating the user, which then prevents any user registration plugins from firing.  Depending on the site this could mean nothing, or everything.

We're confident that we'll get an initial release (which we're going to call a test release for the CB portion) out next week.  There will likely be bugs, because, as you all know, CB's been around a long time.  This means that it's both complex to work with and there are so many add-ons that may cause conflicts.

In short, everyone will know when it's out, but we won't immediately be recommending that everyone go try it.

There are quite a few posts on this board on how to customize the login module, and we'll try to make it more flexible in the future.  Just search for 'login'

To customize yourself, a quick description of the file necessary is here:

There's a whole thread about this below.  Please use that and post there if you continue to have issues.

Great to hear things are going better.

The invite module must have the "Post Invite Action Url" and "Invite Content Url" set.

- The Invite Content Url is where you want users to be sent when the 'accept' an invite sent by a friend (i.e. you're home page or a welcome to the site page).
- The post invite URL is where you want to send your users that are inviting other people to when they're done (i.e. an 'thanks for inviting your friends' article.

Hope that helps

We've just heard about this.  It seems to be an IE8 check that sees content being loaded from a different site.  We are looking into it, but are unsure 'who' between us and FB is going to have to fix it.  We will post an update when we find a solution though.
