I been trying to use the facebook connect module & it does not work ! . I got the button on the page, I can click login & I can login to facebook from my website BUT the data is not being stored in the data base nor the SS CMS recognizing the facebook login !

I have the following in my _config file , but still no luck :

If anyone can help me fix it will be great . Its the only module of its kind for SS :)

I just pushed a couple fixes for it ( try that and see if that fixes it for you.

And no it isn't the only module to do Facebook Connect. Simon_w has a oAuth / Facebook connect one which is better if you don't want to use the js sdk.

i still get the same proble after downloading the new facebook Connect from the link you provided:

I have added the following to the

<html lang="en" xmlns:fb=""> in the header

<% if CurrentFacebookMember %>
<p>Hi $CurrentFacebookMember.FirstName</p>
<% include ConnectLogout %>
<% else %>
<% include ConnectLogin %>
<% end_if %>

I am still able to login to facebook from my website but the data is NOT in the databse !

woow.. I got it working, I had problem with FacebookConnect::set_member_groups(array('forum', 'group2')); but i got it fixed ( was a typo)

For anyone who is reading this, use FacebookConnect::set_member_groups(array('forum', 'group2')); or your members will have no group !

TY so much for the quick fix , great modules ;)
