[Resolved] WPbook: FB can't add app to profile
I installed WPbook to mirror JewishJokes.org at http://apps.facebook.com/jewish-jokes/ ; and that part of WPbook seems to be working fine. (I have modified the WPbook template to display featured images, and ratings voting stars, etc.)
However, I can’t get through Part 2 of the WPbook installation instructions. All attempts to add a profile tab are rejected with the message:
An error occurred while trying to add the application to your profile. Please try again later.
It’s been several days of trying, and I’m convinced that I need to change something before it’s going to work. (When other users try to add the app to their own profile, they get the same error message.)
In my WPBook settings in WordPress, under the “Socialize Options” section, I have checked the “Enable add to profile” checkbox.
The instructions also say to make sure ‘you’ve allowed for “Users” to install the app on the “Authentication” tab of the application settings in Facebook’ But I see no such tab and no such field in my App settings. Where is it? (I see only: About, Website, Facebook Integration, Mobile and Devices, Advanced. No ‘Authentication’.)
But here’s a clue: I created a new Facebook user ID for this project and every now and then, Facebook tells me:
Confirm Your Email Address Hi Vitz, To continue using Facebook, please click on the link we sent to . This will confirm your email as your contact address.
When I click the link in the email, Facebook tells me I’ve successfully completed the process.
But later on, it will tell me again that I need to confirm my email address. I’ve done this several times already, over several days.
Here’s what I was last doing to cause the message:
Any advice would be appreciated.
(I am new to WPbook; and although I’ve been a Facebook user for awhile, I confess I’m not very clear on the distinctions between Profile Tabs, applications, fan pages, walls, etc. I am, however, comfortable writing and hacking PHP/MySQL/CSS,etc.)
Thank you for your attention.
