you can download the plugin (v.0.0.4) from:
What exactly will this provide? Am I missing something?
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 ?
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?
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.
