SA Facebook?
« on: June 16, 2018, 10:42:29 am »
Hey Everyone,

First and foremost, thanks for what you guys do.  SMF has been my forum of choice for years and i use it in some pretty unusual ways...  Your mods have always been an inspiration to me.

I recently reserected one of my old sites that uses SMF and would love to be able to get the SA Facebook mod working.  After much headascratching and many file and DB restores, I finnaly got the old forum upgraded and the SA Facebook mod loaded.  I have the Facebook App created already and working with a different forum (mybb, also was a bit of a wrestling match, but I assure you it works even with FB's new rules).

Anyways...  Im missing a couple of peices to the puzzle to get SA Facebook working and am hoping a kind soul over here can help me.

1)  FB now requires you to put in an explicit listing for each "Referer" to get authenticated.  This means everything down to the action assignment.  IE: "https://www.forum.com/smf/index.php?action=facebookintegrate".  Previously, FB would allow you to just specify "https://www.forum.com/" and anything under that would work.  The questions boils down to, what other actions are needed here?  What could be passed to FB or asked of FB to pass back?

2)  FB has disabled automatic approval of almost all of the parameter passing except EMail.  I imagine SA Facebook is configured to grab all of the old approved parameters, so it will probably fail at that point.  What PHP file contains what SA is trying to "grab" from Facebook?  Just knowing the file will probably be enough of a pointer so that I can do the rest.

3)  For anyone attempting to go down the same rabbithole - FB now requires your site (or at least the part that asks for a FB authentication) to use HTTPS.  No fun, I know, but its thier rules.

Thanks in advance for any and all help anyone may be able to provide.  Keep up the good work and the good fight!  SMF RULES!

I have kind of given up on the Facebook mod. Facebook is starting to really lock down their api and they make constant changes.

No doubt.  Thanks for responding, I may take a stab at fixing it myself and will let you know what I find out.
