XF 1.1 Which Xenforo Versions Will Support New Facebook APIs?

Discussion in 'XenForo Questions and Support' started by XnForFanKN, Jun 24, 2016.

    We received a message from Facebook that our site "login has been making recent API calls to Graph API v2.0, which will reach the end of the 2-year deprecation window on Monday, August 8, 2016. Please migrate all calls to v2.1 or higher in order to avoid potential broken experiences."

    I know some earlier versions of Xenforo don't support the newer Facebook API versions. I have two questions:

    #1. What is the oldest version of Xenforo that will support Facebook API v2.1?
    #2. If we upgrade to the latest Facebook API v2.6, what is the oldest version of Xenforo that will support that?

    Thank you.

    The newest version 1.5.8 I think is the newest uses the new API.

    XF 1.5.8 is currently using v2.4.

    We started using that version in XF 1.5.0.

    Thank you both for the info. What is the oldest version of Xenforo that supports API v2.1?

    XF 1.5.0.

    Prior to that, XF 1.4.x was using v2.0.

    Thank you! That's good to know. Last question. Which version supports 2.2 and 2.3? We have to decide how far to upgrade both the API and the Xenforo software at the moment.

    We jumped from v2.0 in XF 1.4.8 to v2.4 in XF 1.5.0 and we're still using v2.4 in 1.5.9. We did not use v2.1, v2.2 or v2.3.

    Any chance of a minor point update for XenForo 1.4 to support 2.1+? Or is the only option for retaining that Facebook functionality to upgrade to 1.5? :[

    We don't have any plans to backport a change like that. At this point (and it has been this way for a while), 1.4 is only getting security fixes.

    Is there a reason you don't want to upgrade?

    Believed as much, but thought I'd ask

    Large number of add ons and my own template modifications. Upgrading major XF versions is a serious process for us

    1.4 to 1.5 would not be considered a major XF version. I don't recall any fundamental changes that might stop addons working (check if the resources have been noted to work with that version) and your template mods can be merged using the template merge feature.

    I am aware of how to go about it, don't worry. It's just very time consuming to go through every add on, check it's versioning if it's been updated, see if any add ons are replaced by built in functionality, do a mock upgrade, check template merges, etc. etc.
