Issues with Facebook SSO

  • Hi All,

    I'm missing something in order to get FB SSO working. Whenever I attempt to register via FB from our NodeBB site I can see the redirect uri being passed in the URL says "localhost". Anyhow, don't know if that's the source of the trouble but when I attempt to login I get:

    "Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration: One or more of the given URLs is not allowed by the App's settings. It must match the Website URL or Canvas URL, or the domain must be a subdomain of one of the App's domains."

    However I have in fact specified the url in both the website, canvas and app domains. Obviously I'm missing something given that I just logged in with facebook on this site. 🙂

    Any pointers appreciated.

  • @j.b.-o. A fellow user submitted a problem with this plug in via github about a week ago. It is not working for him any longer. I considered loading this plug in as well but am holding off until his issue entry is closed.

    @rod, couldn't reproduce that issue 😦



Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
