  • Facebook API Change to v2.6

    I got an email with this Information:
    Informatik-Forum has been making recent API calls to Graph API v2.0, which will reach the end of the 2-year deprecation window on Monday, August 8, 2016. Please migrate all calls to v2.1 or higher in order to avoid potential broken experiences.

    We recommend using our new Graph API Upgrade Tool to see which of your calls are affected by this change as well as any replacement calls in newer versions. You can also use our changelog to see the full list of changes.

    You can view this and other Developer Notifications related to your app, Informatik-Forum, in the App Dashboard.

    vB4 is unlikely to receive the required updates as it is no longer in active development.

      The change from 2.0 to 2.1 doesnt appear to affect any calls used by vB (according to the developer tools).

        << which will reach the end of the 2-year deprecation window on Monday, August 8, 2016. >>

        My members do seem to be impacted by this, now that we are past the Aug. 8 date, we're starting to see "too many redirects" error pages today on various browsers and I had to turn off Enable Facebook Platform to get by it.

        Any suggestions?

        v. 4.2.2 PL6

              As mentioned above, there aren't going to be any further changes in vB4 regarding Facebook.

              Facebook are continually moving the goalposts. If we do change anything, it will go into vB5. vB4 does not receive any active development now. It is supported for php compatibility and security issues.

                  At this time, no, there are no plans to work on the facebook code again.
                  FB keep changing their code, and I'm afraid vB4 just isnt going to keep up with them.

                    Facebook connect is very important thing. The reason I' am not update- lot of customization made, and URL's is being indexed ( made by third party SEO) needs to be correct redirected.

                      As Paul and I both said - there will not be any further updates to the Facebook code in vBulletin 4. Sorry.

                      If it really is that important, it may be worth offering a paid service request on www.vbulletin.org and paying a third party coder to make the changes.

                        Facebook has completely rewrited own API since old REST API. For example there is no restserver.php endpoint, many fields in new GRAPH API has been deprecated or deleted (e.g. current_location, affiliations, pic_square and so on). API URL has been changed to new https://graph.facebook.com/v2.7/, and there is no FQL and main HTTP method has been changed from POST to GET

                        Because I'm still using VB4 in a technical forum and we have many facebook connected profiles - I've decided make a "quick-and-dirty" small patch of existing VB4 API. My code is based on VB 4.2.2pl4 version, but I suspect that it will work in all 4.2.3+ versions. While patching only the following problems have been solved:

                        - Facebook login of existing linked users
                        - Link a Facebook profile to users without FB link. (Note that FB profile photo will not be displayed when you connect - I think that isn't a big deal, am I right?)
                        - Unlink FB profile from VB user profile

                        Nothing more! Other functionality I didn't rewrite and test!

                        You have to change two attached files (of course make a backup copy of these files):
                        • /includes/class_facebook.php
                        • /includes/facebook/base_facebook.php
                        Attached Files

                          I suspect it probably wont. The facebook code was updated in 4.2.3.

                            Forum currently has access to Graph API v2.1 which will reach the end of its 2-year lifetime on 30 October, 2016. To ensure a smooth transition, please migrate all calls to Graph API v2.2 or higher.

                            Will there be a fix for this?

                              There are no current plans to update the facebook code [yet again] in vB4.
