Noginx related Facebook authorization issue, someone halp?
So this is an issue i just decided to forget about, because i can't figure out how to solve it. my website http://californiamotorcycleforum.com , won't work with the facebook login and i think it's because of noginx. If I fill out the tables on the facebook dev app, and use my .com URL as the domain and website address, it won't work. But if I use the ip address it'll work, for me at least (others it still wont work for) and it'll create a bunch of other problems as well. So I dunno how to fix this. Maybe someone else has had similar problems? I had another noginx thread about how to install noginx, but that one went on long enough, so i figured i should start a new one.
Daaaayum, that's a nice lookin' forum. I love what people are doing with category images these days. Truly inspiring.
As for your facebook login...
- Ensure that "californiamotorcycleforum.com" is added as an app domain.
- Your site url should probably be
- Ensure the app ID and secret is specified correctly in the ACP, and that you restarted your NodeBB after saving those values
@julian thanks. I'm always tweaking things, trying to get used to editing.
i'm pretty bad at trying to explain things to developers. So this is what i had.
And when i click on the facebook icon on either 'register' or 'login' i recieve this message:
Now if I change the site url to my ip address it will work, but it will take me to the Ip url, which had a ton of weird affects. Those logged into the Ip url show as offline on the domain and vice versa. Those threads which are read, will appear as unread on the ip.
And if i look at the URL for that error page , it looks to be pinging the Ip address instead of the domain:
facebook.com/dialog/oauth?response_type=code&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2F 188.8.131.52%3A4567 %2Fauth%2Ffacebook.....

Yeah i just use dreamweaver ftp because it's quicker, for me at least. okay i got the website to run while the base_url is http://californiamotorcycleforum.com.
The facebook issue remains the same, although the app is no longer pinging the ip address.
Okay. I just deleted the url and domain from facebook's app. Retyped it in again. Hit save. Now it works. this would be rewarding if i knew why that solved it.
I'm just glad it's working. I'm guessing your dreamweaver doesn't insert a plain ol' quote? Seems like an odd thing for a code editor to not do, but I'll refrain from making any disparaging remarks against that IDE
Edit: @kevin, can we possibly feature your forum on our main website?
