I just updated to the current 6.x-2.x-dev via github from the -beta10 on drupal.org and lost the FB connect graphic in the login block, which effectively makes the module unusable.

I have followed all directions correctly (I believe) and added the appropriate FBML handlers in the tag of the page.tpl.php for my current theme (the giordani branch of marinelli).

Any thoughts?

*Feel free to merge with all the other browser-specific issues of this problem, but this problem is related to my updating to the current dev branch and runs across browsers. Thus, I thought it distinct enough to merit its own issue.*

Also, devs/maintainers: change "unable" to "enable" on the checkbox for "Fast Registration mode" on the "Appearance" tab in the settings. Unable and Enable are opposites and I believe you mean to write enable. ;-)

You are right. Thanks

I'm sorry, not trying to be daft, but what do you mean by "check admin/reports/status page"? I'm running the most current dev branch via github and upgraded form the beta10 listed as the recommended here. (I updated--and ran update.php--to try to fix the nothing appearing in the Fecebook tab on user profiles issue. It seems like the general recommendation from reading through the issues here is to update to the most current dev branch.)

Plus, Facebook Connect isn't even listed in the report... ;-)

But, as noted in my initial post, my issue is that the Facebook image does not appear in the login block, so there is no way for a user to sign in with Facebook.

Thanks for your time and I appreciate that this module is trying to create a very valuable and convenient way for a drupal site admin to get users signed up!

I mean by "check admin/reports/status page" that you should go to the admin/reports/status page of your site and look there errors and warnings for

> Facebook Connect isn't even listed in the report
Do you use the last version ? Try 2.x-alpha1

> image does not appear in the login block
it does not appear at all? or are you seeing only unclickable text "Connect" ?

dr_morel’s picture

Thanks for the clarification on that!

I'm using what was the current 2.x-dev that was at github, as of yesterday. I see now that the alpha of 2.0 is available here; I will upgrade to that module and see if the issue persists.

And, the "Connect" text displays (just text, no link), but no img. Previously, the img had displayed as clickable link to initiate the FB connect action.

do you see any javascript errors? are you sure that you added correctly xmlns:fb into head tag ?

dr_morel’s picture

No js errors visible (or in activity window), related to FB connect (one for lightbox, though!).

I copy and pasted the add-ons directly from the README.txt -- and they matched with the previous version (-1-b10). I double checked, as I know that was causing some browser-specific errors for others, as reported the Issues forums here.

I won't have a chance until tomorrown morning (~17 hours from now) to update to the new 2-a1. As soon as I do, I'll check back and report. ;-)

Again, thanks for the help!

PHP 5.2 or higher versions.
Drupal 6.x.
Facebook PHP Library: http://github.com/facebook/php-sdk/
Facebook API key: http://www.facebook.com/developers/

http://github.com/facebook/php-sdk/blob/master/src/facebook.php#L82 - version 2.x

What is it, the add-ons ?

dr_morel’s picture

Oops. By "add-ons" I meant the "xlmns:fb" in the .

I tried the new 2-a1, but the no image issue persists.

I reverted to the 6-1 branch (sorry, not sure which exact version, but it was downloaded on 11 Aug) and the fbconnect image appears.

So, I'm going to try to compare line-by-line the 2-a1 and the 1 versions of fbconnect.module to see if I can isolate any difference in the syntax that might be causing an issue.

Well, you've clearly put substantial effort into v2, as the code is way too different to do a useful comparison between v1 and v2!

So, I'm not sure what to try next...

Version: 6.x-2.x-dev » 6.x-1.0-beta1

hi Vec,

I'm also having an issue on the fbconnect 6.x-2.0-beta1 version.

I installed fbconnect 6.x-2.0-alpha2 a while ago and it worked great. Everything was perfect.

Now, I'm using the latest ( which is beta1 ) and the image does not appear. The first time i installed beta1, the
div with id="fbconnect-wrapper" appears along with the text 'Sign In to Facebook'. There were no blue button image because the HTML < fb:login-button....... > Connect < /fb:login-button > was not being generated in my page source.

I deleted everything and went back to version alpha2, which works.

Now, I'm installing the beta1 version again and not only is the button not showing, but the < div id="fbconnect-wrapper"> does not show either.

On a good note, I do have a Facebook share block with the Facebook share button working great on the homepage.

Please advise.

yes i tried clearing the cache, but it didn't change.

At the time, I did not have fb_social installed. So just right now, I installed fb_social and it still does not work.

Then, in my module's list, I unchecked all the fb_social, friend invite, and stream publish. the only thing checked is FBconnect and it still does not work. Attached is what I see:

Only local images are allowed.

thanks for your help.

what's it ? there should be fb:login tag in html

yes, there should be fb:login tag in the HTML but using BETA2, it does not.

I have another site running ALPHA2 and it works perfectly. The fb:login tag shows up and everything.

My problem is that when I run BETA2, the fb:login tag does not show up and thus the button does not get rendered.
I went into FBConnect's settings page for the appearance of the button ( admin/settings/fbconnect/apperance ) and the buttons show up great.

However, when i get to my sign in page, it doesn't show.

I use beta on few sites and everywhere it works fine
I could take a look at your site to get what's wrong

I also have that exact same problem with the login block.

I also noticed this problem, but when I updated the Facebook PHP sdk to version 2.12 then flushed the cache everything worked again.
