[Solved] Facebook login on Vanilla embedded in Facebook - not connecting.

I'm having a problem with Facebook connect on my forum when it's embedded into a Facebook page.

I've copied my vanilla installation on my server, for the purpose of embedding it in Facebook by connecting it to the same database. It's working fine using the mobile theme.

Facebook connect, isn't though. I think I know why: the Canvas URL for the Facebook application is forum.onlyanexcuse.com

The second Vanilla installation used on Facebook - onlyanexcuse.com/fbforum - resides in a subdirectory. So when clicked, the Facebook connect button throws up an error.

Is there a way to use Facebook connect to log into both?

(forum.onlyanexcuse.com is also in a subdirectory, rewritten to the subdomain, if that's any help)


  • Fixed, didn't realise setting the Canvas URL to the site's domain did the trick... my apologies.
