Post subject: Facebook Connect for phpBB2?

I am wondering if anyone has developed a mod or made changes to their phpBB2 board to allow users to create phpBB accounts via Facebook. I have had at least one of my board's users requesting this.

Judging from the comments on the link you provided, I'd say make sure the facebook_id column was added to your database and that the mod makes its calls to the right db/table names.

That may be the point. The db had not the name the mod expected (phpbb, not phpb2, so may be there are some wrong calls). I'll check it out and let you know.

Can not find a problem this way.
The table facebook_id was created after I changed te querie
Code:
ALTER TABLE `phpbb2_users` ADD `facebook_id` INT( 20 ) NOT NULL;

into
Code:
ALTER TABLE `phpbb_users` ADD `facebook_id` INT( 20 ) NOT NULL;

Appears to me this implicates no further changes, since facebook.php makes the changes to the table like this
Code:
//no account! Create one
$sql = 'INSERT INTO '.USERS_TABLE.

But then again I'm not a programmar and not a database specialist (far from, to be exact). Just know html and some very basic php

When and where does it say the user is banned? What kind of account?
And what does the error say exactly (or if you don't have it in English, please check lang_main.php for your language and find the variable name for me)?

Hi,

is there a working facebook connect solution?

I tried already this mod:

http://wannabe.contropa.com/facebook-connect-for-phpbb2/217/

but its not working anymore because the javascript SDK is to old and I dont know how to adapt this.

Thank you
labu

OAuth2 integration should be (relatively) straight-forward and enable you to login to other stuff:

I don't think anybody ever did get one to work right in phpbb2 or phpbb3 either. one problem is that fb changes their code so often and then whatever was working no longer does.
