facebook/social integration plugin

edited August 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I am trying to enable the facebook plugin but i get error message saying "this plugin requires allow_url_fopen php.ini setting. How can I fix this? is this part of the server? Do i need to contact the webhosting service?

update: I found the php.ini file and see that the allow_url_fopen is set to ON. so not sure why it's giving error.. please help!

    Even though the setting is on it's possible your host has disabled the setting nonetheless. For whatever reason, the script doesn't think you have the option.

    If you want to try the plugin you can add the following to your config.php:
    $Configuration['EnabledPlugins']['Facebook'] = TRUE;
    However, you may not have the requirements.
