Simple Facebook Connect
[resolved] How to create or add application on FB (5 posts)

    ok, I know how to create the application and create API key on FB per the instruction provided within SFC. However, we only have a regular FB page meaning the kind you can administer through several members and the page does not require you to be logged in in order to view. I am one of the admins but I don't want to create the app through my personal FB account. Any ideas on how I can go about to get the ball rolling with the situation I am in? I know Otto the creator is actively answering questions here so any insights from Otto would be appreciated. Others are very welcome as well.

    You need the Application. This is not optional.

    Afterwards, add the Page ID number to the SFC settings page. Then it will use that through the Application.

    If you want, you can add other people as admins to the Application too.

    Apologize for the "newbie" question for setting up the app on FB, are these the right steps?
    * get on the Developer my app page
    * set up new app (whose web url do I use?)
    * copy the keys to SFC

    Do I need to:
    * setup facebook Integration. Mobile and Devices or Advanced under Setting?
    * submit the app?

    Thank you for helping.

    The answers to those would be no and no.
