Simple Facebook Connect
[resolved] App Configuration Not Working (3 posts)

    I was attempting to follow the instructions on creating a new app from this page:

    However, the app creation screen in Facebook has changed because it doesn't look like the screen shots on ottopress.

    So I tried to make the best of it anyway but I get an error when adding the bookmark URL:
    Validation failed.
    Bookmark URL must be relative to your Canvas Page URL.

    It works if I leave out the bookmark URL but the result is that the APP itself ends up being a canvas app in a Facebook iframe. See here:


    This vastly differs from the result I see when I click Go to App on


    when I click Go to App on


    it opens your blog, full screen, domain in tact.

    I wouldn't mind the iframe except that my blog width is wider than the provided 700px of the iframe canvas page.

    Can you advise?

    Any of these would be adequate results:

    1. Open full blog, like yours does

    If not,

    2. Extra php page to load a custom page layout that fits in the iframe showing the latest rss

    I prefer if the blog open like yours. However, create a new app and you will see it is different now.

    They've vastly simplified the app setup process since I wrote that.

    Leave everything on the Facebook Integration page blank.

    Fill in the Site URL and Site Domain on the Web site page.

    Setup the rest however you like.

    That is the only configuration required.
