    Hi,
    me again!
    I found 'smartec' idea really practical, that was why I've also created a test site with the Strawberry Blend theme and the fbconnect plugin installed.

    great work!

    Just a problem: the plugin seems to use a wrong url prefix for sites with blog homepage different from wp install directory.
    I think a call to get_bloginfo('siteurl') should replace get_option('siteurl') anywhere in the plugin code.

    Hi everybody!
    and thnx Nico, but I tried to find something similar in the plugin code without success. Besides from that I've changed the wordpress theme to the "default" one and I have the same issues with IE.
    If you have another idea, please tell me about it.
    Regards,
    Alex

    Just to reassure anyone reading this thread thinking the plugin is a bit of a nightmare, I have it running with 2.7 and a modified version of the Aperio Prototype theme at theSwitchback and it's working like a charm. Top plugin.

    I've not been able to test in IE on my site properly in IE (on a Mac), but I hope it's working!

    Hi every body!
    I only write to tell you that I found the solution: I've uncheck the box "Facebook Connect Via SSL" in the plugin's configuration site of my WP.
    Now I can see the connect button and my friends pictures also using Internet Explorer.
    Bye and thnx for all!

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /.../wp-content/plugins/wp-facebookconnect/fbconnect.php on line 38

    the line that it seems to be referring to is this in the "fbc_get_fbconnect_user" function:
    return fbc_facebook_client()->get_loggedin_user();

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi all,

    First, GREAT plugin! It works perfectly right out of the box!

    However, I am never satisfied with any new shiny toy :D

    I want to make it so that when you click on someone's photo or name, instead of going to the fbconnect profile I want it to go to their author page.

    So, I went though the plugin pages and changed every instance of fbconnect_action=myhome&userid=XX to author=XX and that worked great when permalinks were turned off. However, once permalinks were turned on (as I want them to be) click on the users that were created soley by FB connect return a 404 error.

    They redirect to /author/FirstnameLastname. Now, WP author pages are at /author/username so I thought that might be the problem. So, I changed the FB connect registration to register the username as FirstnameLastname (which is much better then FB_FacebookID) but I am still getting a 404 error.

    Also, when I got directly to /author/username (where username is the default FB_FacebookID) I get the 404 error as well.

    The weirdest part is that when I have permalinks on and I click on a link for a FB Connect user that is attached to a WP user that I manually created it goes to their profile just fine. And when permalinks are off, everything works just perfectly...

    Anyone have any ideas? Basically I cannot find the author pages for those FB Connect users when permalinks are on...

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    finally got it working after hours of struggle.

    i deleted my first attempt and re-did it using the Socials version, and it was SO EASY. so use that version, got it up in minutes.

    I am using Prologue's P2 theme + Facebook Connector. It works swell for logging in, creating accounts, and posting comments to Facebook from WordPress. However, I'd like it to also publish new WordPress posts (not just comments) to Facebook.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    I also cannot get this plug-in to work under IE, and I have tried all sorts of code hacks and CSS manipulations. And yes; I had th language setting in the header.

    I'm amazed that it was released with so much unreliability in a common browser, as bad as IE is.

    I'll keep checking back here for an answer, and I'll post one if I get it.

    Hola, tengo el siguiente problema con IE8, puedo logearme sin problemas, pero cuando postea el nombre queda de esta forma: FB_1766003417 escribio:, no muestra el nombre. Como puedo arreglarlo?

    Otra duda que tengo, es como hacer para que cuando este logeado con facebook solo aparesca el recuadro para escribir el mensaje y postearlo, no la casilla e-mail ni nombre.

    Saludos y Gracias.

    Hi i got a problem with IE8, i can login without problems, but when i post, it show FB_1766003417 post:, didn't show the name. How i can fix?

    Another question i got its how i can show just the message box when the user is login in the site.

    Regards and thank you.

    Hi,

    I'm having problems installing the FB connect plugin on one of my two blogs. I don't think it's got anything to do withe the theme because they're both from the same designer. I followed exactly the same procedure so I don't know what went wrong.

    When I try to logout or invite friends, I always get a 403-error:"You're not authorized to view this page". In FF the error-massage says: "You don't have permission to acces /wordpress/ on this server" I changed the permission via chmod but that didn't produce the desired effect. I also tried to add /wordpress/ to the URL of my blog as the connect-URL in the FB-appilcation but unfortunately without any result. Does anybody know what might be the cause here?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello.

    This plugin is quite nice, thanks. Not sure what happend, but the only time I see my picture is if I login. I see another user with the same issue as well as the issue on other sites.
    Is this a privacy setting somewhere on the facebook side?
    Site is HERE

    Thanks,
    Stang

    Right on. This seems to be working pretty well, but there's one minor little goofer going on. When I put things in quotes, the latter quote comes out differently, and on some browsers as a bunk character. See this screenshot:

    http://www.triplepundit.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/wacky-quote.gif

    That's on Chrome, FF and ie8, altough some users don't see the box.

    I have traced the problem (I think) to something FBConnect does with the header. Look at this:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US">

    How is facebook sneaking in there?

    Another oddity is that the "publish this comment to facebook" checkbox does not appear on some browsers. FF in XP for example. But on Mac it works fine. Anyone got some resources to figure that one out?
