ADMIN: Facebook Connect Enabled
« on: July 26, 2011, 07:05:48 pm »
I've enabled Facebook Connect (as it has to be enabled to get all the like buttons to appear). You can elect to link your Facebook account with your TC account -- if you wish. Note that doing so will allow you to post (some of) your activities here to you FB wall. Note also that linking your accounts will effectively tell the entire world about your account here. Be sure your want to do this before you connect your accounts.

Connecting your accounts is not a requirement. I'm not even sure it is a great idea, but I know there are at least a few members who have asked to have this enabled. Just carefully consider whether doing it is a good idea for you. Neither TC nor FB is responsible if doing so ruins your life.

OK  not sure if  it worked or not but when I clicked on the  facebook button on  TC  I got an  error message and  when I hit the  ok  button it  went to  my  facebook  page.

I look at it this way when it comes to  connecting with  facebook, if  people  don't like whats  on my  wall then  they  can  *gasp*  delete me. It's  only  facebook  and  not real life if  people  can't handle  me  belonging to  other websites  they don't agree with well  uhmm TOO BAD. Mind you that's   just  me and  my whole I don't' really  care what  other  people   think  of me attitude..:D:

Yes, that's the main reason I turned Facebook Connect on. The social networking buttons deend on it being on because they interact with the vBulletin Facebook code.

I just clicked on the connect button at the top of the page and I got a page asking me if I wanted to connect my accounts. If you got an error page, it's possible whatever setup Facebook needed to make the "ecauldron forum" app actually work took longer than the "few minutes to update" it told me about.

Me too! (Well, my pagan facebook.)

Will it still post to the facebook I've linked it with if I'm not logged into it? I'm logged into my regular facebook much more often than my pagan one.

I'm not very Facebook literate, but a couple of TC specific posts have appeared in my newsfeed.  If you're not logged in that often then that means they post anyway, I think.
