3.4.1 : Fixed mail, changes in language file.
3.3 : Added Wall publish for Joomla 3, fixed infinite loop in multilingual websites
3.2 : Fixed "Undefined Password" while registration
3.1 : Checks invalid Facebook email address and other fixes.
In addition, I've created 'xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#"'-files containing certain FB plugins, which are embedded in wrapper modules ... guess a lot more could be done.
I found one minor coding bug that was simple to correct. I also wish that that the new user wall posting was optional; I had to manually go in and comment out the line in the code that created it.
Those minor things aside, this is a very good free extension.
I got it installed fine, followed the directions in trying to add the AppID and secret key but the directions are for 1.5 and when you try to add them you cant..
I to spent some time on there site and finally found there forum post a message several days ago and still no reply..
So beware if installing this on 1.6 should be fine on 1.5.....
Hi try installing latest version 1.7ex for joomla.
