I'm using 2.7 wordpress and I'm guessing the plugin isn't compatible with it, are you planning to upgrade so that it will install properly.
After unzipping and uploading using filezilla to my plugin file, I then try to activate it.
I receive this error:
Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /hermes/bosweb/webxxx/xxxxx/ipw.xxxxxxxx/public_html/manfredeye/wp-content/plugins/wp-facebookconnect/fbconnect.php on line 38
I have 'x'd out info I don't want to post. :)
hope this helps as I would like to use this if possible.
