Simple Facebook Connect
force SSL (6 posts)

    Hi all,

    Webbrowsers get pretty tight on SSL issues. That a good thing but it is an issue to remove all warnings. The simple-facebook-connect plugin works like a charme but raises SSL warnings and errors. Simply because all the links are http. Replacing them by https solved the issues only partially. The reason:

    Unsafe JavaScript attempt to access frame with URL <my_site> from frame with URL https://www.facebook.com/extern/login_status.php?api_key=<xxx>&extern=2&channel=<my_site>%2F%3Fxd_receiver%3D1&locale=de_DE. Domains, protocols and ports must match.

    Is there a trick to avoid such issues? I guess that's an issue on Facebook site.

    Any luck with this? I am having the same issue on my blog w/and without Simple Facebook Connect which makes me think it's some kind of issue on Facebook's end, or maybe WP end?!

    Let me guess: you're using Chrome or Safari?

    Are you getting a FB.getLoginStatus() called before calling FB.init()

    I've been sent several SSL related patches which might help fix the issues.

    Try the trunk version of the plugin: http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/simple-facebook-connect/trunk/

    Hi Otto thank you very much and two questions about that --

    First am I just downloading all of the plugin files from this /trunk/ site and then putting them up in the FTP of the folder? Is this some pre-release version of the plugin (sorry I'm just a noob at this).

    Also: do I need to be running my site in HTTPS to make this work?

    If you're not running in HTTPS, then it shouldn't be using the HTTPS versions of the URLs in the first place.

    But yes, just replace the existing files with the trunk versions. It's pre-release, but heck, I run it. :)

    Thanks Otto,

    I will try out your patches. I also made a quick hack on my local copy. For me it works. Still There is an error message that there exists an iFrame but this is nothing too serious because it does not get browsers to report this as an severe error (at least not yet):
    Unsafe JavaScript attempt to access frame with URL <my_url> from frame with URL https://www.facebook.com/extern/login_status.php?<api_key><my_url>. Domains, protocols and ports must match.

    Anyway. Thanks!
