  • Facebook integration

    Just wondered if it's true that even with Facebook integration enabled (app id / secret etc.) VB5 does not allow new members to register with your site using their Facebook account?

    Am using currently VB5.5.2.

    Partially true. Currently, it doesn't work the way it did in vBulletin 4. Unfortunately, Facebook has changed the way this works and we can't pull much of the information that vBulletin 4 does. Plus the implementation in vBulletin 4 will eventually fail as Facebook continues to update its API.

    However, we have rewritten how Facebook Connect works in vBulletin 5.5.3. It now works within their guidelines and will pull in the information they allow for a web based app at this time. The user will still need to go through the Registration form but some of the information will be pulled in for them as allowed by Facebook. They will also need to agree to your terms and privacy statement as various laws require.

      I can confirm from my testing that it works correctly in 5.5.3

    Thanks for the info.

    Yeah, I got FB Connect working but as you say registration doesn't work. Shame.

      Ok, cool if it's working when 5.5.3 goes to production.
