BTW... The SMFPacks social login doesn't work, it's a waste of money. Don't waste your time, it's no different than the free mod here, they don't provide any support either.

So you reported today that you weren't able to create the app property, I checked and the development interface from Facebook changed, so I told you I was going to update the guide and because of that you are claiming it's not working? The mod is working, you can't blame me for a Facebook update, plenty of SMF sites are using it perfectly fine.

SMFPacks Social Login works flawlessly: https://www.smfpacks.com/sociallogin/ Don't know though if there is some "middle man" there or not. ;D

Thanks for the feedback, and there isn't any man in the middle, everything goes from your site to the social site :)

1st - I reported the installation installed two FB and 2 twitter buttons. Your response, "you installed it twice, remove one install". To which I responded, no I didn't install it twice, there is only one install in the package manager. Your response, nothing.

2nd - In my helpdesk ticket I reported that the FB interface wasn't working and provided you the error, I then reported Twitter wasn't working and provided you the error. Your response, you moved my ticket into the general forum and mentioned there is an issue, that was it. My ticket was closed out and you left my concerns with your forum customers for them to answer.

It doesn't work "Flawlessly" it obviously has several issues, you charge $30 for a mod that is no different than the free mod here. I bought your mod solely because I figured if I paid I'd get a "flawless" product with support should I need it. I got neither, it's a complete waste of money.

njtweb - there may only be one showing in the packman...   but, if you see two buttons, then it is likely that you double-installed and have to manually remove one of the duplicate code changes
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

I understand that, however I clicked install 1 time. Either way, doesn't matter. I'm not bothering with it and have already written it off as a $30 waste. And his support is useless.

The ticket was moved to the bugs report board because Facebook changing their app setup is a general problem (it's not only affecting you, just like the Twitter one which is in the same board as it was reported at the beggining of the week), I'm sorry you feel so bad about it, hopefully when the guide is updated you can give it a try, this should be done over this weekend, you'll be notifed via email and then we can tackle the problem with two buttons which indeed happens when the edits are done twice as Kindred said. I can't use this as a support board, so feel free to contact me if you have any further problem after the upgraded instructions.

I think that's Instagram, because FB is still doable without. We've essentially lost our freedom, everything requires extra work these days. I also find every developer site extremely complicated to use and configure, no matter how friendly the interface becomes.

@Nibogo, that's the problem when you have no middle man, it's hard to maintain. I will purchase once 2.1 is official.

You're right there! I have to do releases every now and then for changes in the providers APIs or their setup, but it's worth it since plenty of users prefer to not have a man in the middle for this kind of process.
