Hi all,

Firstly thanks for all the great work Will!

I've successfully installed the latest version of your module and latest Silverstripe on my computer at work and have just set it up at home and am getting the most annoying issue!

1. The FB 'login' button works fine and opens the login window a-ok.
2. Once I've logged in it closes the pop up but then keeps repeating the

window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
appId : '159716150722805',
session : null,
status : true,
cookie : true,
xfbml : true

FB.Event.subscribe('auth.login', function() {

function and continuously trys to reload the page.... endless loop?

I've now tried two clean installs on my local host and tried a heap of stuff to get it sorted but have had no luck at all. kinda important I get this working or my boss is gonna skin me on Monday! lol

Cheers for all your help Will

Session shouldn't be null after logging in. You might want to put a debug statement inside the catch() statement to see any of the errors its generating.

Note that the app url is a setting on the facebook settings page and that has to match the URL so if you're on a different URL at home that would cause it to fail.

I'm curious though how you set the Application URL in the settings when you're testing your implementation locally. http://localhost?
Doesn't seem to do it for me, then I get the endless refresh as nimeso told about. Leaving it black will cause the auth popup to protest..

I'm running my app locally on port 2000 so I of course just had to set "http://localhost:2000/" as my site URL and the eternal redirect loop stopped.

Now I just have to figure out why my session won't work..
