    It gives timeouts, nothing happens, on my 2 XF forums and on this forum at xenforo.com
    Maybe a FB change in methods or policies?

    Other forums softwares using FB connect is still working fine.

    I'm not a facebooker so I can't test this. But I will bring this to the attention of the guys.

    Works fine for me on my site and on here.

    Works fine on my site too.

    If it's your own forums it's stopped working on then perhaps you have done something wrong in the setup. But yeah, there is no widespread issue.

    Mine stopped a while ago, though user can connect with their facebook account:

    That's what we're talking about, connecting the Facebook account.

    But that could be easily fixed, I think. Is it your "Like" button generating that error?

    Yeap, like button doesn't appear unfortunately instead a red "Error" text.

    I assumed the part in red was missing (from the share_page template), but if I remove it I can't replicate the problem:

    <fb:like href="{$url}" show_faces="true" width="500" action="{$xenOptions.facebookLikeAction}" font="trebuchet ms" colorscheme="@fbColorScheme"></fb:like>
    Basically @fbColorScheme is a style property and it should be set to either Light or Dark. I assumed it was missing which is why you have that error, but if I remove it from my test board it still works fine.
