Nextend Facebook Connect
[resolved] Redirect / Auth / User issue (10 posts)

    Since I updated to 1.4.29 - I try to register a new user, and instead of creating a new user based on the Facebook Auth - it redirects to the specified login url with this in the URL:


    If I de-auth the app, and try to do it again, I get a bunch of json data.

    Users aren't created.

    Also - when I click on the "Login with Facebook" button - it actually logs the user in as the admin.

    I also will get redirected to the post-login page (without going to Facebook) -

    Could it be that I'm trying to use App Test Users?

    Thanks for reporting this problem. So you wrote two independent error as I see. Am I right?

    Your first problem is that the user with Facebook account unable to register.

    And the second that you have a registered user through Facebook, who de-auth the app. Then he's trying to login again and the system log him in as admin.

    Actually, I think I found the major problem with at hand ::

    Facebook's Developer Backend lets you create test users for applications. These are non-public users that still have full Facebook functionality (profile images, they can 'like' things, authorize apps, etc).

    The users I was trying to authorize using your plugin were the test users created by Facebook.

    Is there a way to allow these test users to work with Nextend Facebook Connect?

    I tested it in the last 10 minutes.
    I followed this steps:

    1. Created a test user for the app
    2. Logged in with the test user on my site
    3. The application asked for authorization, I allowed it.
    4. The registration were successful, I were logged in
    5. I logged out from the site
    6. In Facebook I removed the app from the allowed applications
    7. Then I tried to log back
    8. I have to authorize the app again
    9. Then I were logged in wothout problems

    What am I doing different than you?

    The problem I was having - is that I was getting errors when trying to authorize the app after being redirected from my site (with the Nextend link).

    If I wasn't getting errors - I was getting redirected incorrectly -

    EX: http://lifegroups.newlifechurch.local/?loginFacebook=1&redirect=http://lifegroups.newlifechurch.local/leadership

    instead of being redirected to Facebook or Logged in.
