If you do install this plugin and receive the following error:

Please use this alternative version instead which does fix this issue:

Are you sure your settings are properly set?

It seems that that bug only appears, when I'm changing the username. Same thing happens in your demoforum, when I'm entering my own userneme the same error message appears.

I can confirm this bug, coming from the new Facebook API needed. It will take a while to adapt the plugin to the new Facebook API. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks, but now I just get blank pages in the forum upon actvating the plugin.
Also I can't find a way to eanable the debug settings in this version, are there any special requirements for PHP Extensions?

White empty pages are usually a result of non complete plugin upload. Could you reupload the plugin?

Hi Lennart!

I've purchased a subscription and I've tried to install this plugin on my website. Of course, first step was to create a Facebook application. I've completed all the necessary setting fields with the information provided by facebook, but I'm getting a strange error: Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Facebook\FacebookSDKException' with message 'Session not active, could not store state.'

Do you know how can I fix this?

Thank you very much.

Hi Mihu,
sorry for my late reply.

Where exactly do you get this error? At which point is it displayed?

The error indicates that the server session is not started yet (although it should have been started by MyBB already).
