View Full Version : Facebook Connect Plugin

March 26, 2012, 10:08 AM
Hi all,

Today I'd like to tell you about common issues that you may experience when configuring Facebook Connect Plugin. The issues are not critical but can have an effect on performance of the Plugin.

If, after creating your application under Facebook and entering App Key and App Secret, you got an error message in Facebook pop up when logging:


Or nothing after click.
It means that you entered incorrect data under the application configurations.

First of all you should make sure that a url specified in the url field is identical to the one of your site (the one that you can see in the browser address bar),


for example if your domain is www.domain.com then you should enter http://www.domain.com.
If your domain does not have www or there is a redirection from www.domain.com to domain.com then you should enter http://domain.com.
If you entered a correct url of your site but the Plugin still does not work we offer the following solution to the problem:

1. Go to your Facebook applications at http://developers.facebook.com/apps/
2. Select an application and click on the "Edit App" button;
3. Make a screenshot of the page; and
4. Submit a ticket with the screenshot attached to the ticket.

Our Technical Department will be able to help you after getting the details above.

To give your users the ability to log into your site with their Facebook accounts you have to set up an Application first:

1. Sign into your "http://developers.facebook.com/apps" account and select "Add a New App" from the "Apps" menu at the top.
2. In the "Add a New App" pop-up window click on the "advanced setup" link, which you can find at the bottom.
3. Enter your domain, select a category, and click "Create App."
4. Go to the "Settings" and click "Add Platform," then "Website," and enter your "Site URL." Note: http://example.com/ and http://www.example.com/ are not the same.
5. Enter your contact email on the "Settings" page, save a copy or write down the App ID and App Secret (you'll need them in the next step) and save changes.
6. Go to the "Status & Review" page to put the App (flip the switch at the top).
7. Set your site URL to "Valid OAuth redirect URIs in Products > Facebook Login (look at Sidebar)
8. Enter your App ID and App Secret in Flynax Admin Panel (the one you got above) and click "Save."

Hi Alex, is there anyway that the facebook plugin could take the avatar as well?
Also Alex, would you please help me how to replace my name $facebook_info.name, with username? For example if my fb url is : www.facebook.com/abcde, how do I get "abcde" instead of my name? I try $facebook_info.username and $facebook_info.uid but it doesn't work.

Thank you
