Facebook Integration Error & E-Mail Confirmation Problems


I just installed XenForo, and we've come across two problems so far.

1.) No matter what I do, I cannot get the Facebook application to work. I tried to follow the steps shown in the XenForo manual, but the steps listed there did not match up with what the Facebook application site was showing me when I tried to create the app.

2.) Users trying to register ARE receiving confirmation e-mails, but the link given doesn't work. It directs them to a "sorry this page cannot be found" message. So I've been having to validate everyone's accounts manually.


1) Which part doesn't match? Or which part are you having trouble with?


2) I am guessing your board URL is wrong:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL
1.) User Support Address andContact Email-------------------- there are no such fields.
Click on Web Site-----no such option

EDIT: I may just be completely having a DERP moment with the Facebook integration, I'm not sure. Regardless when I run the tests, it says an error occured, so something isn't right. lol

2.) My board URL is set to http://www.sunless-guild.com/forum, and the home URL is set to http://www.sunless-guild.com

1) Maybe the instructions need updating. I am not a facebooker so I can't check it. :(

2) The URL looks correct. Can you post one of the links that isn't working?

That will fix links in emails from now on. That old link still won't work. But it works if you manually remove the "forum" part:


I just visited this link and it activated the account. As is normal for "used" activation links, this link now redirects to the index page.
Ohhh goodie. :3

That just leaves me with the facebook issue. lol :3

I also can't find my own facebook ID or the ID of my guild's facebook page to save my life....
