Hi, i am just testing the facebook authentification module. The README says:

- Extract facebook folder to your site root
- Provide your application id/secret using the Config API
- Run /dev/build

But unfortunately i am not sure where to put the FacebookCallback->facebook_id/secret.

Can anybody help? Does anybody kno a good tutorial to start with SS3?

Greetings, Carsten.

I have not tested or installed this module but i think they mention the _config.php file in the api (facebook folder) like all modules work.
You can either put it in mysite/_config.php or modulefolder/config.php dependant how the module is written.

The best tutorial to start extending the sitecode with ss3 is

and have a lookaround on this great forum...
Only thing is since SS3 is out some code has been dramaticly changed (the good way) wich makes it a bit harder to get code.

Personally i love this CMS because of easy is has (most of the times :) )
If i have any questions i ask on the forum and mostly someone can help or send you in the right direction
