Setting up Facebook All in one on temporary site address

Recommended Posts

Hello Chris
 
(This is my first go at posting a question on a forum :-D)
I have uploaded your 'Facebook All in One'.
 
My site has a temporary address on my host's server until we are ready to replace the existing site, here's the address:

http://176.32.230.24/dancebiodanza.co.uk/ 


I registered with FB and got the 'API ID' and 'API Secret Key' from https://developers.facebook.com/. - (phew!).

HOWEVER...

When I type in my current site address into:


Website with Facebook Login
Site URL:
 
I get this error message from FB (see below - also attached) :

>>
Error
dancebiodanza.co.uk must be derived from one of: Site URL, Mobile Site URL, Canvas URL, Secure Canvas URL, Page Tab URL or Secure Page Tab URL.
>>
 
I'm assuming this is because 'dancebiodanza.co.uk' is  a subdomain - not a domain?

If this is the reason, anyway around it? Or do we just have to wait til site is live? Or am I barking up the wrong tree totally!?
 
Have you come across this before?
 
Thank you!
 
Robin

Hi Robin,

Facebook says that for security reasons, you can't use an IP address, you have to use a URL. I'd go ahead and create the app using the actual address. I believe the section will still work, but not 100% sure. Let me know how far you get.

Hi Jenny and Chris

 

I've realised I can't use a URL rather than an IP address because my hosting service's address IS just an IP address - and that is where my site IS - until we are ready for it to 'go live'. When I type in the actual current address, I get an error message. (see attached)

 

I tried typing in the address it WILL be when it's live - and FB accepts it, no problem. (see attached)

 

BTW when I was googling around for a solution, I came across the related problem of using a local host with FAO. There were work arounds suggested, but I don't think they apply to my situ.

 

I am just going to wait til we go live.

 

Thank you so much for being available to help. I really appreciate and respect how you all at Pagelines approach the challenge of supporting the people using the programme.

 

I am sure I will be asking more questions soon! :-P

 

Robin

      I have used this to show the Facebook feed on this site:
       
      www.loveitlawns.co.uk
       
      It now seems to be broken as when you view the site on a mobile phone or iPad it spills off the page to the right and you have to scroll horizontally. I have completely deleted it and added again from scratch but I am still having the same issue. I have also deleted and re-added the column it sits in, can you help please and my customer is now getting a little frustrated?

      Hi
       
      Whenever I activate this section on a page in my site, it messes up the alignment of the social buttons in the share bar section. Could you please look into this for me and get back to me with a fix?
       
      Thanks

      Hey guys,
      Just testing out Facebook all in one, so far the comments are showing up to me when logged in with the same facebook that i left the comments with.
      But for other Facebook users or users who aren't signed in, the comments that are left don't show?
       
      Is there a way to show these comments to all users? Or at least all signed in Facebook users?
       
      Cheers :)
