    Hello all. I need some advice and clarification. First, I am totally new to XenForo (so be easy on me). I was a vbulletin owner (3.7) a few years back and know a little about install and configuration. I am having a difficult time finding information on some features that I am unfamiliar with... the Facebook Integration is one. I am not sure what it is completely, but I assume there is some link between the forum and a created facebook page. I created the page for my website/forum... but I can't figure out how to find the info. I did manage to find the application ID. But how or where do I find the application secret and the facebook page admin (facebook user id)?

    Or am I missing something and that is not what this feature is for?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.. but I am stuck on the first part... I goto the facebook developers page and the instruction says to hit the 'apps' tab. I did. Then it says to click the + Create New App... there is nothing like that on the page. I see a 'register as a developer'. I don't want to do that.

    Perhaps someone can explain what the purpose of this integration is (in laymans terms)... perhaps I don't need it or it isn't necessary.

    Thanks Brogan.... and I do need that feature. But I can't understand why facebook is requiring me to enter a phone number (text/call back) in order to register as a developer. I am not too keen on giving them my personal data.

    You do likely have to give them that information to create an application. Make sure you're logged in as a Facebook user though, not a page -- this changes things on their developer site.

    Yes, I think I got it figured out. Had to give my cell to continue... thanks!

    That's a standard set-up for Facebook app. Facebook will not be using you cell no. for any purpose.
