    Facebook Connect helps Facebook users log on your web site by using their Facebook credentials.

    It's similar to OpenID, but of course, Facebook is the sole provider of the credentials.

    It works perfectly under Firefox but not with IE & Chrome.

    The Facebook Connect button is not displayed

    Did you experiment the same thing ?

  8. Try putting
    <script type="text/javascript"> FB.init("YOUR_API_KEY_HERE", "PATH_TO_PLUGIN/xd_receiver.htm"); </script>
    In your footer.php theme file.

    I've installed it but whenever the plug-in is active my page takes forever to load...

    Anyone have the same issue?

    Is anyone using it on WP 2.7?
    I didn't try it until now. I activated it and the widget, and tried the FB auth, after hitting submit/okay/login on the FB page, all I can get out of any page (admin or not) on my page is:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function username_exists() in /data/atothet/htdocs/blog/wp-content/plugins/fbconnect/fbConnectLogic.php on line 137

    I logged in with another browser and disabled the plugin, so all is back to normal, but.. this is a BAD/serious error. however, I only post to see if anyone has any fixes?

    I've succesfully got the Facebook Connect to work on my site. I had to play with the css and php files. Works in Firefox, but NOT in IE and it makes my site SOOOO slow.

    Anyone have any idea how I can tackle these issues? I'm not sure where to start.

    FIXED the Internet Explorer IE issue. You need to make sure to add this to your header.php

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    HOWEVER....I'm having issues with the "invite freinds" it loads in my sidebar and not on its own page...any ideas?

    I made an alternate implementation of this that just uses Javascript, but all it enables is logging in via FB for adding a comment and then posting back to your FB news feed if you want.

    It requires some knowledge of JS/HTML/PHP, but it's all just copy-paste from the details I wrote up here: http://dentedreality.com.au/2008/12/implementing-facebook-connect-on-wordpress-in-reality/

    Thanks, can't wait to try it out! Is there further development being done with this? What about integrating it with the wp-admin functions of posting new blogs or new pages? I'll look into it when ASAP and hopefully work off of what you have already built.

    Thx again.

    We have members on our site who can create their own profile using WordPress’s user tables.

    Do you know whether there’s a way FB connect can work alongside registered users in WordPress?

    thanks,

    Zac

    If you are having issues with the sociable plugin I can tell you that the problem is not the plugin, is the theme you are using. As said above you need to add to the header the following:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    Also you should review the theme's CSS, header.php and footer.php coding.
    If you are still having issues with the plugin post the link here so taht we can take a look.

    Mine is running with no issues at http://www.carlosmariomejia.com/blog

    I'm having trouble getting the facebook connect logo to show up (twitter logo as well). I think it has something to do with the theme I chose but I'm having trouble figuring it out.

    This is my site:

    Let me know what piece of code you guys need to see to help. Much appreciated!

    Hi, I am having some issues with making this plugin work with an Arthemia Premium theme. I have tried installing the extra code as mentioned on Sociable's site, but it does not change anything. Basically the login all works, but the box with all the other users pics in the sidebar does not work. When I click to load up my community it says I have 16 friends, but no pictures load up. Any ideas? I wouldn't know where to start with the css.
    At the moment I have added the extra code to the header but not the footer cause it seems to make things worst
    the site is here

    Hi everybody,
    I have the same problem than 'girlstoys' as you can see here. I can't see the connect button and the pictures of the community members in IE. Of course have I also included the 'extra code' in the header.php file but I thing the problem probably is in the theme style file (it's a pretty theme, perhaps too much, called Strawberry Blend).

    It would be really nice if you could help me with this annoying problem.
    Thnx,
    Alex
