Missing profile?
Category: JFBConnect

Just wanted to give you an update - The plugin code is updated and I'm running it against our automated tests for Kunena 1.6.4 right now. This new version of Kunena is looking much better for me and more useable. I expect to post the plugin file this afternoon shortly.

Here's a little post to add to the excitement - Now that JFBConnect version 3.2 is out, we're really focused full-time on the next release of JFBC to support 1.6!

From the development side - This is the first extension we're updating for 1.6, so there's been a few small hiccups but things are going pretty smoothly now. Once we think we have most of the changes in, I have a kickass set of Selenium tests (automated tests) to barrage it with to make sure the functionality from v3.2 is still working. As development progresses more, we'll provide an ETA for the next release date.

We're excited that we'll be releasing a feature compatible release, not some stripped down version, and things are looking good so far!

JFB Connect overview

Just wanted to point out that we just had a new release of JFBConnect 3.2 out tonight that should fix this issue. Give it a try and let us know if you have any issues with it.

Displaying real name (from FB) vs username

Easy enough. We just released a new version 3.2 of JFBConnect tonight. The JFBCLogin module now has a setting for the greeting to use Username or Full Name. Let us know if you have any issues with the new version.

Like button posts wrong info to facebook

We've just released a new version 3.2 of JFBConnect tonight that adds capabilities to set up the Open Graph settings. You can set up the properties in Components > JFBConnect > Social > Open Graph. There are several ways to get the properties set: 1) using the {JFBCGraph} tags, 2) in the configuration area and 3) allowing JFBConnect to figure some of the required values out from the page title, description and url. Check out the configuration area for more details and examples.

Manually placed JFBCLike tag in K2 pulls in wrong image into Facebook

Check out the configuration area for more details and examples.

We've just released a new version 3.2 of JFBConnect tonight. This release adds the middle name field. It also uses the Full Name from Facebook (which takes advantage of the Full Name Appears As field) instead of just using first name + last name. Unless you want to pull in middle name separately, you should just have to install the new component and plugins to get this update.

FYI - We still have the gender import in our list of to-do items. It unfortunately did not get done in this release as we've added a ton of other features.

FYI - We've just released a new version of JFBConnect tonight that makes setting up the Language Locale simpler. Simply go to Components > JFBConnect > Configuration > Facebook API and set your locale for the "Facebook Language Locale" setting. You'll no longer need to hack the JFBCSystem plugin to set this up.

Thanks!

Tags aren't visible because JFBC is installed on your site.

This issue has been fixed in the new version 3.2 of JFBConnect. In the backend, you will set up the "Social Tag Admin Key" (located under Components > JFBConnect > Social > Misc). Any tags in brackets will need to have this key included to be rendered. For example, if you set your key to 1234, then the tag would look something like {JFBCFeed key=1234} to be rendered correctly. Any tag with an incorrect key or no key will not be rendered. (Pretty much as Alex described above). Check it out and let us know if you have any issues with it.

We've just released version 3.2 of JFBConnect tonight which overhauls the Content plugin. In addition to selecting the layout view (Frontpage, Category Blog, Section Blog and Article), you can now specify which articles, sections and blogs to include or exclude the Like or Comment functionality from. The configuration for the Content Plugin has moved to the component area (instead of the plugin), so go to Components > JFBConnect > Social to set up the new options. Let us know if you have any more suggestions on how to improve this area further.

Thanks!

We've just released a new version of JFBConnect tonight which should fix the above issue of tags showing up on the Contact Page (even though it sounds like you worked around it earlier).

The new release pretty much overhauls the JFBCContent and JFBCSystem plugins and eliminates the need for the JFBCSocial plugin. There are tons of new options for configuring the Content plugin now and new social tags available for the System plugin. Check it out - there's lots of new bells and whistles to play with.

feature request to set Default extended permissions in backend

We've just released a new version of JFBConnect which allows for customizable permissions, in addition to the basic permission options already supported. To set this up, go to Components > JFBConnect > Configuration > Permissions. Here you can enter a comma-separated list of new permission values. We'll add those values to whatever permissions JFBConnect needs already. It should be just that simple, so please let us know if you have any issues with it.

Thanks!

How to not automatically enable users?

We've just released a new version of JFBConnect with admin approval of users. The setting is under Components > JFBConnect > Configuration and is called "Skip Joomla User Activation". Turn this setting to No to take advantage of the New User Account Activation setting in the Global Configuration area. Try it out and let us know if you have any issues or more suggestions. Thanks for your patience.

status updates are not working

Well better late than never! We've just released a new JFBConnect version 3.2 that allows you to import your Facebook status into JomSocial. To enable this in the backend, 1) Enable the "JFBConnect - Profiles - JomSocial" plugin from the Plugin Manager, 2) Go to Components > JFBConnect > Profile, and 3) Click on the JomSocial tab and set "Import Facebook Status" to Yes.

We've just released JFBConnect version 3.2. There are now settings in the Configuration "Status/Wall" tab to set a default image and URL for wall messages for new and returning users.  Coincidentally, we also added new OpenGraph settings under the Social configuration area. If you leave the new Status/Wall fields blank, the message will still be posted, but Facebook should try to determine the best values for these using these Open Graph settings.

Joomla compatability of SetMetadata

I just wanted to write a quick response. We're working on a new release of JFBConnect right now. After that, we're planning on updating our extensions as needed for Joomla 1.6. It may take a little while to get them all done, but the process will be started soon.

Won't install nor de-install

Ir looks like you already had a previous version of the plugin installed and either it did not uninstall or upgrade properly or you tried to delete the previous plugin files but did not remove the entry from the database. You will have to manually clean up the files on your server and database before installing again.

You can try to uninstall via the backend Install/Uninstall menu, but this won't work at this point.

To manually remove the plugin:
1. Delete the following files -  plugins/forcepasswordchange directory, plugins/forcepasswordchange.php, plugins/forcepasswordchange.xml and administrator/language/en-GB/en-GB.plg_system_forcepasswordchange.ini
2. In the database delete the entry in the jos_plugins table, there should be an entry with name 'System - Force Password Change'. Here's the SQL query I ran to do it:

Code:

DELETE from jos_plugins where element='forcepasswordchange' and folder='system';

Let me know if you still need help after trying these steps.

Need to modify the message after logging in.

I was actually already working on improving the greeting for the JFBCLogin module to be more similar to the core Login module, when Alex told me about this post.

The line of code to override (for mod_jfbclogin/tmpl/default.php) should now be:

Code:

echo JText::sprintf('WELCOME', $user->get('name'));

The language file (for en.GB_mod_jfbclogin.ini) will now be something like this:

Code:

WELCOME=Welcome %s,

For the greeting, the 3.2 release will update the greeting portion to 1) have an option to use username/name 2) show/hide the greeting and 3) make the login message more configurable like the core language file.

If you hadn't already figured it out, hope those snippets make it easier.

JFBCLike plugin not working

The tag you are using is incomplete. You need to say hideLikeButton=1. You have that value blank. When I changed the second tag to the following, it worked for me:

{JFBCLike buttonStyle=standard showFaces=1 width=450 verbToDisplay=like font=arial colorScheme=light url=http://www.nich.co.il/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1}{JFBCComments xid=content_1 width=550 numposts=10 hideLikeButton=1}

After investigating, it seems that Facebook does not have a way to specify URL or unique ID for the Like portion of the Comment Box. Also, by how they've designed it, it seems to operate separately from the comment portion, so there is no way to control the Like.

I put out a new release of the JFBComments module that allow you to hide the Like button in the Comments module. As a workaround, you can hide it and then also use the Like button or Fan box modules to add the Like functionality into your page with control for the URL. Just to note, with this new release the JFBCSocial module will need to be published for the Comments module to work.

If Facebook changes the functionality to allow what you're looking for, we'll update our modules, but until then, this is the only solution we've found.

I just wanted to point out to you that this issue should be fixed in the latest release of the JFBCSocial plugin that we released on Monday this week.

JFBCLike plugin not working

We also released a new JFBCContent plugin yesterday for adding Comments and Like functionality to your site's articles. In addition, we've released a new version of the JFBCSocial plugin as well, which is required for the content plugin to function. This version allows for adding the content to all articles; we're planning on allowing users to specify certain categories and sections in the future.

Topic: Error
Error on overview page, 3.0 verion

We released a new JFBCContent plugin yesterday for adding Comments and Like functionality to your site's articles. In addition, we've released a new version of the JFBCSocial plugin as well, which is required for the content plugin to function. This version of JFBCContent adds them to all articles, not specific sections and categories. We wanted to get something out sooner than later, so we'll be adding sections/categories to the next release.

Please download these and let us know if you have any suggestions for improvement going forward. Thanks!
