Facebook Connect "page not found"

  • I’ve installed the most current versions of WordPress MU (2.8.4) and BuddyPress (1.1). My Facebook Connect plugin appeared to install correctly (set up the API key and the like). When I click the login button, I get a login window — after entering login data, I get a “page not found” error.

    Anybody know what I’m doing wrong?

    Test site is at http://tribblogs.com/sandy/

    On facebook developer, did you specify the url of your site?

    WOW. It was that simple. One small change in the connect URL on the Facebook Developer side, and it’s up and running! Thanks for the tip!

    For what it’s worth, I ended up disabling Facebook connect as I approach site launch. It’s been characterized quite a few times as bare-bones, and it pretty much is. It works great for signups, but allows people to bypass filling out any profile fields, and accounts created using it cannot be logged-in-to once its been disabled (without a manual password reset by the admin).

    I’d really (really!) love to see a more integrated, fully-featured version (and may end up putting it together myself eventually if nothing appears and I learn more about how the guts of BP work), one that integrates a little better with BP profiles and allows people to login ‘normally’ to accounts created with it if they want — I think it would be a great tool to smooth the already low speedbump to user account creation, but I got scared about what would happen if I start (as I hope) to get a lot of signups and it breaks in future.
